I have a 4.0 sp1 site that uses Nested master pages for templates. In 4.1, when I use the nested master pages, It looks correct in the designer and if I preview the page, but in the live site, it puts all of the widgets into the last content placeholder.
My base masterpage has 3 content placeholders(1,2, and 3). My Nested masterpage adds 3 content place holders to placeholder 3 (3a,3b,3c). In my template, I add an image to placeholder 1, and a menu to placeholder 2. On the page I add content blocks to 3a, 3b and 3c. As I stated earlier, this looks fine in design mode and preview mode, but on the live site it renders the image from placeholder 1 the menu from placeholder 2 and the content from 3c all in 3c. 3a and 3b render correctly. 1 and 2 are empty.
If I just use the base Master page (not nested), it correctly renders to the appropriate content placeholders.
