Problem with Publish not including Nested MasterPage RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-1854466708 posted

    I have a website built using ASP.NET MVC3. I have used a nested masterpage (Winners.Master) which refers to Site.Master as the MasterPageFile. I then have two views that refer to Winners.Master as their MasterPageFile. Both master pages are in the Shared directory.

    When I use WebDeploy to publish the website, it is not including the nested masterpage (Winners.Master) when it publishes the Shared Directory. I am building to a file directory before using FileZilla to upload the files to my hosting service. I have to include Winners.Master by copying from the code directory.

    Anybody know any reasons why?

    As your using MVC3 project, can you try to use a MVC3 View Master Page instead of a nested masterpage?

    As far as I've tested, a nested master page in shared folder of MVC3 project can be published through WebDeploy.

    Can you check the file proper of related files?

    I'm looking for ward for your reply.

    I don't quite understand what you are asking me to do. I already have a main Masterpage on which I have inserted another masterpage in the mainContent area. Both master pages were in the default Shared folder. Everything worked very well when I ran it. The only problem was that it did not copy the nested master page to the directory in the file system into which I was building the site. I had to copy in by hand before I could transfer it to my hosting service.
