Receive a detailed Error Message from a SP MasterPage

Posted by PANVEGA on July 9, 2009

By default you receive an “An unexpected error has occurred” in your MasterPage when you try to make any special changes. However this gives you not the information you expect when customizing your Master Page.

What to do:

Enabling stack traces and disabling custom error pages in web.config is a great way to help you diagnose the specific problems.

You can do this by setting <customErrors mode="Off" /> in web.config and

the CallStack="true" property in the <SharePoint><SafeMode> tag in web.config.
