    While editing a template or page I can't drag a drop a control from a tool box into a container(placeholder). In overlay mode the whole page/template is grayed out. this started happening after I applied a new css based layout. The old one (also css based but very simple) worked well. I realize that there is a problem with css but not sure what exactly is causing placeholders to be grayed out and disabled. Also, when I actually drop a control, then instead of a placeholder it ends up on the bottom of the page.

    Thank you,
    Dmitri

    Hi Dmitri Khait,

    Generally the issue appears when there are spaces between opening and closing tag of the  ASP ContentPlaceHolder controls declared in the master page. Try using short closing tag ( />).
