I've been slowing catching on to the Publishing pages functionality. I'm still a bit confused on the creation of Publishing Types (such as Page, Page Layout and Publishing Master page)
The issue I'm running into is specifying on a specific page layout what master page to use. By going through the site settings, I can change the entire site's master page, but ideally what I would like to do is: - Create a Publishing Master page layout (custom.master) - Create the Page Layout that uses the above master page (customLayout.aspx) - Create a page from the web admin, that will allow me to use the pre-defined regions of the customLayout.aspx
This all seems pretty forward, but even creating a new layout wasn't intuitive, as you had to first declare it as a new content type and create a new page based on it. Here's MS's tutorial on it: Create a Publishing page layout
As you can see in their tutorial, we're using the "page" parent type, but it's later on used to create a layout? I guess there's a disconnect.
There is no indication as to how the master page can be associated with the page's layout and adding the masterpage type entry to the .aspx page did absolutely nothing.
Any help (and explanation) would be appreciated.
