Page layout and Site Template Settings timeout

Problem

Had an issue on one of my site collections where clicking on page layout and site template settings would take a long time and eventually result in a time out. Attempting to create any pages from the page layouts would also result in the same timeout issue.

Solution

Reactivate the SharePoint Server Publishing feature under the Manage Site Features on the site collection.

  1. Browse to your site collection -> site settings
  2. Click Manage Site Features
  3. Deactivate the SharePoint Server Publishing feature
  4. Reactivate the SharePoint Server Publishing feature

You should now be able to access the page layout and site template settings without the timeout.

I was able to follow the instructions and integrate the Enterprise Search Center with our Intranet branding.

Exception message: No parameterless constructor defined for this object.

Problem

The following error is logged in ULS when you try to create a new page based on a customized template.

Exception message: No parameterless constructor defined for this object.

Cause

This issue is most likely caused by problems with the page layout that you are trying to create the new page from.

Solution

Open the page layout in SharePoint designer and examine the code for any errors. Errors in the code will be highlighted in yellow. Resolve the code errors and the problem should go away.
