Are you on a subsite or a site collection? – Mike Jan 18 '13 at 16:32
This is a subsite (SPWeb) ex: sp (SPSite) sp/hr (SPWeb) - Somehow changing the master page setting here changes the sp master page settings. I need to stop this from happening. – MicroSumol Jan 18 '13 at 16:41
Have you tried disabling and re-enabling the publishing feature on the sub-site? – Jesus Shelby Jan 21 '13 at 19:44
Jesus Shelby, that was the solution. Thank You. PS C:\Users\spfarmadmin>Disable-spfeature Publishing -url yoursite/subsite -force PS C:\Users\spfarmadmin> Enable-spfeature Publishing -url yoursite/subsite -force – MicroSumol Jan 28 '13 at 22:24
