SharePoint Designer 2010 cannot edit master pages


Getting this popup error when trying to edit a master page in SharePoint 2010

“Master page editing has been disabled for this site. Contact the site collection administrator to request permission.”

 

To resolve this problem:

Go to Site Actions and click on SharePoint Designer Settings under Site Collection Administration and enable the desired settings.

– Enable Customizing Master Pages and Layout Pages

There are also more settings you can enable if you want to:

–  Enable Detaching Pages from the Site Definition

–  Enable Managing of the Web Site URL Structure
