Imported Team site Not showing correct team site logo from Master Page RRS feed

  •  

    Working with a client migrating content from a SharePoint 2007 site to SharePoint 2010.  They wanted to bring up a brand new farm and then migrate the content from their old system.  Once we stood up the new farm we did a backup on the 2007 content to upgrade it to SP 2010 on a separate web Application.  We then used the export-SP to export the site from the old site and the import-spweb to import the site to the new SP 2010 site.  This all worked great.  However, when we did the visual upgrade after the import the Custom Master does not seem to be working, specifically the site logo.  When applying the custom master page the site logo shows the red X as it cannot find the logo.  When you check the properties to see what the reference url is it shows http://servername/_catalogs/masterpages.   I took the exact same export file and imported into my test machine and it does not have this same behavior.  It picks up the reference just from the Master Page.   The site logo is specified in the Master Page.  Anyone have any ideas?

  • Actually it turned out to be a stupid problem.  In the site settings of the site - title description and icon, the url for the site logo had a single space in the field.  With that space it cause the logo coming in from the master page to break.  Once the space was removed it all works fine.

  • You just have to find out where it expects to get the image and make sure the image is there.

  • That is the problem.  The url is gettin translated as http://servername/_catalogs/masterpages and not the correct ref that is in the Master Page.  Also,  Other sites created in the SharePoint 2010 site and not imported show this logo just fine.  And one more thing to add is if you open the page to edit it in SharePoint Designer it shows in the designer just fine.  Just not in the browser.

  • You mentioned that the site logo is specified in the master page. Once verify the path of the image. Had you used relative path or the absolute path for your image src property? Make sure the path points to the right location in your 2010 environment.
