Updated 2010 Starter Master Pages up on CodePlex 7

Just a quick note to tell everyone that I have updated my starter master pages on CodePlex. I have made several minor tweaks that should help them be more “minimal” for easier use in your branding projects.

Here are some of the bigger updates in this release:

  • Additions to the SharePoint Server starter master page to include some My Site support
  • A third starter master page that works with the Meeting Workspace (yes they still require a unique master page in 2010 but unlike in 2007, they are very similar to the standard master page)

UPDATE: All of my starter master pages can now be found here: https://github.com/rdrisgill

    Hi Randy,

    One question about the Starter Master page on CodePlex: Is it based on nightandday.master? Is it most suitable for a Publishing site?

    It is based on things I learned from v4 and nightandday. There is a publishing version and one that works just for foundation included with the codeplex files.

    Mattias, I have posted the 2010 Starter Master I usually use, it has the ribbon turned off while not in edit mode. Its just using css, but this may be something that you’d be interested in. Randy, thanks for all the amazing work!

    Hi Randy,
    Can I use this master page on Publishing Portal? I noticed that you’ve been using it with Enterpirse Wiki in your example from your book.

    Yes they can be used with Publishing Portals. I really only used the Ent Wiki to avoid having to deal with turning off the publishing approval workflow. I get a lot of quesitons about this… sorry for the confusion.
