I want to deploy a new custom pagelayout, like I did always done it before too. It will be deployed without any errors. It appears on the 12-directory in the correct folder. The feature is availible and activated. But I cannot select it from the new-page-list and it doesn't appear in the masterpage-gallery.

  • which version of SharePoint you using? You try to create pagelayout using visual studio right? If so where you deployed your solution (site or web). Have you verified in both site features and web features?

  • SP-Version is tagged -> 2007. That's right, I deploy a pagelayout with VS. It's a Site feature and active at this scope.

I have tried this procedure and created page layout. Please refer this and confirm whether you done everything.


  • It's a nice how-to but for SP-2010.

Well, in the end it was a permissions problem in the database.
