    I seem to have no problem deleting master pages in 3.7 and away they go. However when I duplicate a master page inside Sitefinity they do not show up in the App_Master folder. They do show up if they are duplicated in VS2008 but then i have to re add the components ie clickable logo..

    What I am trying to do is create a Master page with a few components added duplicate then assign the duplicated template to another section of the site with slightly different components ie different slideshow for different sections.

    Hello Richard Warner,

    The duplicated page is a virtual page and it is not physically created in the solution folder. If you delete the physical master file, you loose the copy as well. I suggest that you should work only with physical  master files.

    All the best,
