I have a SharePoint website, and the Master page looks different only for a particular user. This user has the same permissions as other users. when an other user logs in and tries in the same system, the Master page/ Page layout is coming properly. Is it possible for the website to pick up a different Master page only for a particular user.

  • other user logs tries in the same system with same browser or different browser?

Thanks guys.. The master page was not published. so the site owners and normal users were seeing different design on master page. Once i published the master page all the users are able to view the same page.
