Beautiful Master Page Samples!


Yesterday i had a LOT of fun doing a free ASP.NET Training course with New Horizons and needed some REALLY compelling/cool/beautful master pages samples and could not find any!


I started the work of creating my own with Office Sharepoint designer/Expression Web Designer and found a simple way of creating (leveraging?) the most beautiful Master pages in the world!


Step 1.    Start either  Office Sharepoint designer/Expression Web Designer


Step 2. Choose File New > Web Site Tab


Step 3. In the General List choose “Import Web Site Wizard” choose “Ok”


Step 4. Select the HTTP option and type in your favorite/best looking web site address and choose next


Step 5. Either add to your website  (or not) and next


Step 6. If  you are importing something like Ebay only import linked pages to 1 leverl deep!


Step 7. click “Finish” and Wait


Step 8 Open the page you imported


Step 9 Choose “Save As” and change the type to Master


Step 10. Add a Content Placeholder Control from the ASP.NET Section of the toolbox


NOTE:  You can not reverse step 9 and 10!


Step 11. Open in Visual Studio and Wow your audience with your web designers prowess!
