    Welcome to the Samworth Enterprise Academy is my sharepoint custom masterpage.

    Still in development as i am waiting on some content but i am fairly happy with it

    (just don't open it in firefox as i still need to sort out the CSS for it and it looks ghastly in FF)

    stuartwilkie & mattmoo you both have excellent custom sites, but I wouldnt know where to start in customizing the master page.

    Thanks guys, the firefox issue is bugging me though haha.

    Anyways, its not that difficult to customise, its more coming up with a design thats the problem.

    All i did was copy the default.master and rename it
    Then i created a custom.css and linked it to my new master page.

    Once you have done that you can see what classes are used in the master page and add them to the custom.css which will over right the default styles (not the best way to do it programmatically as i guess the styles are loaded twice but for quickness and easyness it was the way that worked for me.

    I created a design in illustrator based on a 1024 x 768 monitor and then took the painful journey of trying to transfer it to sharepoint.

    Maybe i will blog it at some point
