sharepoint 2012 site settings page error

Hi,

I get a 'file not found' error when trying to access site settings on any sub sites that I create.

http://********/test**/_layouts/settings.aspx

The top level site works ok.

Any thoughts on why that is happening?

Derek.

Did you create the subsites based on a template that you created? If you create subsites based on templates that have an attached css then you will have issues accessing the settings. Here is how to fix it. http://www.petestilgoe.com/2011/02/sharepoint-2010-create-site-from-site-template-where-alternate-css-url-is-set-unexpected-error-occured-accessing-site-settings/

Also see this to fix your template so you won't have the issue again when using that template. The above fix only works on sites you have already created...

Seen this issue before and it required alternate access mappings to be set up.
