Is this a custom page layout, maybe with a custom web part built in? I havent seen this before in a default page layout.

  • There is custom user control (.ascx) registered in, the page layout is not create in before the content DB was migrated, any idea how to open it?

  • Can you export the layout and open it up in visual studio to remove the custom control and then add the page layout back?
