We have created a blank master page in SP2013 designer and set it as custom and deafult masterpage.

Now, if we open any of the site page then we get the error:technical error.

  • What does the ULS log say?

Sharepoint needs some controls that are defined inside the master page or it will NOT render your master page.

I suggest to refer to the following project: http://startermasterpages.codeplex.com/ to have a template where you can start to work


Check if the .aspx page is added within: Site Settings -> Master pages
