To fix the issue it is required to update the value of the __PagesListId property value to match the ID of the Pages library.

This can be done (e.g.) through the following Powershell script:

$web = get-spweb http://site-collection/path-to-affected-site
$correctId = $web.Lists["Pages"].ID
$web.AllProperties["__PagesListId"] = $correctId.ToString()
  • do we need to run for each subsite or need to run in root site ?? i have around 100 subsite ..

  • First of all try to activate - deactivate "SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure" feature and check Pages library and then after activate - deactivate "SharePoint Server Publishing" (site feature). Commented Jan 13, 2016 at 7:03
