When you try to update the changes you have made to a master page and its attached pages in a Dynamic Web Template (DWT), the attached pages are not updated.


This problem may occur if you do not recalculate the Web page before you update the Web. When the master page is checked out, and then saved, the link information for the attached files is not saved.


To work around this problem, you must recalculate the Web page before you update the Web. To do this, follow these steps.

Note The Update all pages features is available only when you are authoring against a disk-based Web or against a Windows SharePoint Services server. When the open Web is located on a FrontPage 2002 Extended Server, on an earlier version of FrontPage, or on a SharePoint Team Services server, the Update all pages feature is not available.
  1. On the Tools menu, click Recalculate Hyperlinks.
  2. In the Recalculate Hyperlinks dialog box, click Yes. Wait for the recalculation to complete.
  3. Click Format, point to Dynamic Web Template, and then click Update all pages.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
