  • Can you try creating the sub site using Powershell or stadm.

    It is possible that the current site might be missing some componenets when it was created. Can you try the same on another site collection/site.

  • i did not change anything in onet.xml, it's not a problem in xml files, because when i copied the db of the site to development environment the problem was there too, so the problem must be in the site (db)

    someone can help me to trace the problem??

    thank you
