Hi, I'm using VS2012.
I added the new page by right click the project, add new item, select web form.  It didn't ask me if I want master page so I edit the <%@ Page ................  Mannually to add in the masterpagefile.  it's using the site.master but it can't find the images for the header and the footer.  
This new page is placed on the same level as the default.aspx which displays the header and footer perfectly.  How can I fix this?  Thank you.

Can you share the Page directive that you have in place now for your new page?
<%@ Page... ?

I am not sure how you are referencing your images, but my pages are set up in this manner. All of your header controls  / images are placed on the Master Page above the ContentPlaceHolder, the footer controls  / images below it

On the Master Page, you should have a ContentPlaceHolder object similar to this:
<div id="divMain" runat="server" style="width:82%; float:none; text-align:left; margin-left:15%" >
		<asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="Main" runat="server">
        <%--Main Content comes from the other pages dependent upon which link is chosen
        and the roles / rights involved for that user--%></asp:ContentPlaceHolder>
 </div>

Open in new window


On the child page, it's referenced like this:
<asp:Content ID="MainContent" ContentPlaceHolderID="Main" Runat="Server">
<%--Page code goes here--%>
</asp:Content>

Open in new window


If you can share your code on both the master and child, post it and someone will help you get it ironed out. Just make sure you change anything proprietary information before posting.
