The Page Layout Button is Disabled on the Ribbon
February 28, 2012 Leave a comment
SharePoint 2010 has a bug on the ribbon for the publishing site. In some pages the Page Layouts button is disabled on the ribbon.
A simple workaround for this can be found at http://erikswenson.blogspot.com/2011/05/page-layout-this-control-is-currently.html:
-Check the page out and edit it.
-Click on the Save and Close dropdown and select Save and Keep Editing.
-After the page is refreshed you will see the Page Layouts button enabled.
Thanks Erik Swenson! It helped me a lot!!
