Page Layout not showing up in the Ribbon


  • Dears,

    I have created a new Article Page Layout in SharePoint 2013 and was trying to apply the same to a newly created page. Even though the page layout which i created is approved, its not showing up in the ribbon.

    When I create a page layout using the Share Point Designer i can be able to see the same via Page Layouts and Site Template settings through Site Settings. But when i create a page layout using the Design Manager its not showing up at all. :(

    Anyone experienced something like this? please advice.

    I was missing the SharePoint Designer 2010. :(

  • I have started designing the page layouts using the SharePoint Designer for time being and not using the Design Manager.

  • Hi Ammar,

    When I use "Designer Manager" to create page layout per this article, I can see and use the custom page layout when I create a new page in Pages library after re-open the IE browser.

    Another article with approach of creating new custom page layout via SharePoint Designer, it should also work for SP 2013.

  • Thanks Daniel. I was following the same way as explained in the link you have given above.

    I tried creating page layout using the Sharepoint Manger many times and was fed upped. Was able to create the page layouts using the Sharepoint Designer for my good time hence was in a critical deadline. Finally figure it out it was some problem with the SQL Server 2012, hence the SP 2013 was logging some exception related to SQL connectoin timeouts, etc. So finally i have set upped my virtual machine environment with SQL Server 2008 with SP 2013. So far its working fine without any problem. :)
