    One FANTASTIC feature in SharePoint 2010 is the ability to apply

    custom master pages to your _layouts or Application pages


  • Make sure you have some critical content placeholders in your masterpage

    You are actually using them, not just hiding them in a hidden panel


  • Custom Master Pages and Dialog Boxes

    over your new SharePoint 2010 site, What happens when one of

    the new dialog boxes is loaded on the page (like when you click to

    edit a list item)?


  • Your branded master page with logo and footer and

    everything will also apply to the much smaller modal dialog

    box that SharePoint pops up

  • Add a CSS class to the HTML elements

    that you dont want to show in the dialog boxes

    In SharePoint 2010, Microsoft has provided a property in

    called to load

    your custom CSS after the corev4.css

    but they actually get added beneath corev4.css in

    reverse order.



    So if you wanted the CSS to go in this order corev4.css, custom1.css,

    custom2.css you would list them like this:
