“You must specify a value for this required field” when editing SharePoint 2010 Page


 

“You must specify a value for this required filed”  In SharePoint 2010

 

I was customizing SharePoint 2010 master page to hide PlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleArea and onetidProjectPropertyTitle by hiding the code. 

remove_PlaceHolderPageTitle 

It turn out to be a good solutions and it removed PlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleAre and onetidProjectPropertyTitle but When I try to save the changes after editing my master page, I got this error message “ You must specify a value for this required filed”

you_must_specify_a_value_for_this_required_filed_SharePoint_2010

To remove this error message “You must specify a value for this required filed” I found a solutions from http://blogs.msdn.com/b/tmathis/archive/2010/03/18/you-must-specify-a-value-for-this-required-field-error-when-hidding-placeholderpagetitleintitlearea.aspx

added some of the steps I went through to resolve this problem

 

Step 1:

In corev4.css  I added

.hiddenpanel
{
  visibility:hidden;
}

 To hide PlaceHolderPageTitleInTitleAre  in SharePoint 2010

 

Step 2:

Open your master page and this to your code

hiddenpanel_PlaceHolderPageTitle

Now save your master page and go head and edit your page. You wont’ get this error message

    I can’t find those tags anywhere on my master page when I peruse through my code….also I don’t see a corev4.css anywhere in the master page choices…..

      1. Open Your Master Page
      2. Hold CTRL and click on any CSS ID
      3. This will open corev4.css

      Or Look for _Styles folder and corev4.css will be there

    Hey Aryan,..I appreciate the help and for your time in such a quick response….unfortunately for me, in all of my hasty customizations,..I must have deleted the tags that need to be there….there is nothing there that even looks similar. If I check a page in after editing it,..it seems to hold. Wish there was a simple way to stop that error. Seems so ridiculous to have it in the first place!

    If you can send me a new Master file with that CSS embedded in there,..I can probably start from there. I’ll just import that master file and make it my new default master page….
