What does the blue I icon next to my custom display form mean?

Designer screenshot


The page has been customized (un-ghosted) and has been disconnected from the master page. Any changes to the master page will not apply to that page.

This happens when you edit the page in advanced mode and change stuff other than web parts, for example create additional web part zones (or many other conceivable things).

See here for details. The article is about WSS 3.0 but applies to MOSS 2007 as well.

[Edit:] corrected ghosted to un-ghosted as Per suggested.

    A few corrections: (ghosted) should be (unghosted) and "master page" should be "file in the file system". – Per Jakobsen Jun 25 '13 at 10:32
  • Thanks @PerJakobsen. I find the terminology mighty confusing. Seems I'm not the only one. Here is an interesting write-up that I should probably print out and put under my pillow. – teylyn Jun 25 '13 at 12:00
  • Any suggestions how I can work out what I did to make it unghosted? As you can see I have custom new and edit forms and they are still ghosted – Enilorac Jun 25 '13 at 13:45
