I have create a page layout in SharePoint Designer. When ever I create a new page in my site, it applies "Body Only" page layout on that page and then I have to change it by manually selecting my own page layout from the ribbon.

How do I make my own page layout as default so every time a new page is created, my own page layout is applied to it?


Go to Pagelayout and site templates. Under section Default setting for new pages choose radiobutton saying Select default pagelayout. A selectlist will appear, select your custom pagelayout and click OK.

All your new pages should now be created using this pagelayout.
