Troubleshooting

Help, I got an error after changing the master page and I can't do anything anymore!

A: The masterpage could contain an error, or lack some required placeholders.

This feature only changes the master page for content pages, the administration pages use their own master page.
You can always access this page by browsing to
http://server/_layouts/masterpagepicker/masterpagepicker.aspx

and choosing another master page or using the reset feature
