  • Hello,

    Yes 100% in all SP versions. I am assuming you have already added your custom master page in your site collection.

    If you are using SP server then activate the publishing feature in your site (to activate feature please click below link):

    Once you activated then go to site action-->site settings-->Master Pages from look and feel section. Select yoru master page from DDL and say ok.

    If you are using foundation, then open your subsite in designer and add your master page in that subsite. Then set that custom master page as default master page by right click on master page. Do it for other subsite as well.

    Hope it could help
