I really like the CKS User Group edition and have created sub-sites using the STP I downloaded successfully. This is a nice simple team site for us.
I can add a blog as a subsite and this works fine but I have not figured out how to inherit the branding of the parent CKS:UG site. The blog uses default sharepoint branding (as does the parent of the CKS:UG site). I guessed there may be a master
page installed but i cannot figure this out. When I look at the site master template settings for the CKS:UG site it claims it is using default.master with the added error messages "The site master page setting
currently applied to this site is invalid. Please select a new master page and apply it ". This may be a problem with my Sharepoint configuration as I also a message "The system master page
setting currently applied to this site is invalid. Please select a new master page and apply it. "
My question is: Should the branding cascade to sub sites created within the CKS:UG site or is it a problem with my environment?
Apologies if this is a really stupid question. I'm not yet an expert.
