    How to adopt a new master page and make it work?

    Hi everybody, I want to apply a template from as the master page. Could you tell me how to configure it? Not just target at such template, I want to know the general procedure of setting up a new layout and, enable adding content in each pane in the same page. Thank you.

    I would suggest getting a subscription to, even if only for a month.  It's worth if for the time you save learning umbraco concepts.  That said, here is a basic overview of the process.

    1. Create Document Type, check by box to create matching template.
    2. Create properties on document type for the "content" areas or parts of the page
    3. Go to the template created for the document type, copy the html template code between the placeholder 'ContentPlaceHolderDefault'.
    4. Insert each "page field" you created in the document type within the template (replace sample text where needed).
    5. Copy any style sheets and related images to the /css folder on the filesystem and adjust the link references if needed.
    6. You are now ready to start adding documents to your content tree.
    This isn't a complete walk-through, just the general procedure to get you started.
