    Hi there,

    I'm not sure if this has been discussed and I know it wasn't supported before, but is there any move in Sitefinity towards supporting nested master pages?

    We're still finding projects now where the use of nested master pages could potentially save a lot of time.

    Regards,
    Jacques

    Hello J.Hoventer,

    Sitefinity 3.x supports nested master pages, but you have to add the controls in the markup. There is a KB that explains this Does Sitefinity support nested master pages?

    As for the Sitefintiy 4.0 we will support nested templates. We are currently considering how to overcome the problem with the parsing of nested master pages.

    Hello J.Hoventer,

    You can go to Templates section and create a new template that will use one of your existing templates. The newly create template will inherit the logic from the base template and all controls inside it.

    Hi Ivan,

    It's your first response that I'm really interested in. I was convinced that Sitefinity didn't support nested Master Pages, not sure why.

    I've read the article and am truly stumped, I am so certain that at some point I understood that nested master pages were not supported.

    Thanks for the information.

    Regards,
    Jacques

    I've had moderate success in getting the actual nested master pages into Sitefinity 4, but that's where I'm encountering issues. I worked from the docs and examples to import the files from the 3.7 directory location, and the front end looks fairly intact, but there are script errors in the admin such as " Uncaught TypeError: Cannot set property 'control' of undefined". Which renders the entire edit screen useless. I'm trying to find out where the breakdown is, and will post when I find it.
