minimal.master page change

Answers

  • The minimal.master in SharePoint 2010 is actually a special master designed to be used in certain situations like a Search center.  It doesn't contain all the same content placeholders that the V4.master does.  So you are probably running into an error becasue of a placeholder missing on the master page. If you want to use a minimal.master as a spot to start branding take a look at the starter master pages available on Codeplex.  They contain all the necessary content placeholders.
