Edit button on ribbon not working in sharepoint 2010 custom master page RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey,I have created a custom master page using sharepoint 2010 designer,It was built using minimal.master (not _starter.master) as the base master page.

    The master page works fine except for the edit button on the ribbon,An error message "pub is not defined" URI: http://"MysiteName/_layouts/sp.ribbon.debug.js?rev=lc6eCMZP6gL5LnuSYh0S6Q%3D%3D is displayed on the status bar every time i try to edit the page using the edit button on the ribbon.But i am able to edit the page using site actions->Edit page.

    Could anyone please suggest a possible solution.Also creating the master page from scratch is ruled out in my case.

  • Ya i did that and the master page is working fine now.


      I found the reason why the edit button was not working,It was beacause the control below was misplaced

    <asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID="SPNavigation" runat="server">
                       <SharePoint:DelegateControl runat="server" ControlId="PublishingConsole">

  • I'd try using the starter master page instead.  It would be a lot more effort to try to make minimal.master do what you want and the starter master page will likely resolve your issue.
