I’m in the process of customizing a master page and I’m running into a problem. I’m adding a asp textbox in the ribbon tab area next to the welcome menu. It is a phone search box where employees can type in a name and bring up the employee directory. I was able to get the text box to show up and functions as it should. The problem I’m running into is that none of the out of the box workflows work when the textbox is installed. When I go to add a workflow, I choose the type that I want, click the next button and I’m greeted with:
This Page has been modified since you opened it. You must open the page again. Refresh page...
I remove the textbox and the workflows work just fine. I can only assume that the master page doesn’t like where I’m putting the asp code. Maybe there’s a better way of adding it? This is the ideal location for the textbox but if I have to put in a different place then I will. I've attached a screenshot of the ribbon with the textbox along with the error message I see when I try to add a workflow. Any help would be appreciated.
