SharePoint 2013 - 401 Unauthorized error RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, 

    Recently I was attempting to brand a clients SharePoint 2013 site. After I deployed the solution, set it to custom/default master page and suddenly I get "Unauthorized 401" all over the place with URL "start.aspx". I looked around and found out that this only happened when having the "Minimal Download Strategy" site feature enabled and SharePoint run the request through the start.aspx page.

    After I disabled the MDS Feature, then I am able to open site home page, document library again. I don't know what is the the real reason for such error.

    MS best practice it to disable the MDS Featue? Or any suggestion? What is the root cause for such error?

    Hope someone here can assist me.
