    Great! Thank you so much it works perfect! I installed it, and now will do some changes.
    All the best!

  2. Olivier says:

    I realize the 3 boxes are too close from the accordeon. What’s the best way to have more space in between the 2 elements?

  3. Reenu says:

    First of all thanks a lot for this free theme, however I am really sad that I didn’t not get it to worked. I can’t see any images.

  4. Luis Kerr says:

    Reenu, please follow the steps properly:
    “Place the Tendance folder under your site root. Make sure Network and Network Service accounts have read permissions on this folder.”

  5. Reenu says:

    Hi Luis,

    Thanks for your kind reply, I placed it at the right position, in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wss\VirtualDirectories\6001 , where 6001 is my port. And by default it can be accessed every where. (I am not sure how can I make a folder accessible by Network service accounts)

  6. Luis Kerr says:

    Reenu, just right-click on the folder >> Properties >> Security Tab >> and add Network service accounts with Read permission. You can also add the Everyone as well.

  7. Olivier says:

    Dear Luis, what about more space betwwen the accordeon and the 3 small boxes?

  8. Josey says:

    @Olivier : CSS 101 – Use padding or margin on either the top accordion or the wrapper class around the boxes. If there is no class, add your own.

  9. Marc says:

    I actually set this up fine in my dev environment but when I tried to put it into my productions, I have the same issue as Reenu. I cannot see any images despite the permissions to the Tendance folder being correct. Any other suggestions? I cant seem to find any other differences between my two environments.

  10. Marc says:

    Another bizarre thing to note is that it shows fine in SPD 2010 but in a browser (Chrome, IE) on a multiple computers, it doesnt display.

  11. Liam says:

    Marc, it is obvious, you have some security issues on your production server, restricting the Tendance folder under IIS. Try to give Read permission to Everyone, it did work for me.

  12. Scott says:

    I followed the instructions but i am missing the search bar and any way to edit the page, suggestions?

  13. You can find a SharePoint Foundation-compatible and packaged version (WSP) of this master page at http://www.riolinx.com/en/blog/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=25

  14. ShellieMil says:

    I placed all the files and folders in the location of the instruction. When I go to change the page layouts, “(Article Page) Tendance-Home” and “(Article Page) Tendance does not show, but instead I see “(Page) Tendance-Home” and “(Page) Tendance”. I use these, put it leave space on the right for a right navigation that I don’t want for the home page.

  15. dz says:

    I got everything to work except the Web Part. When I view the page after following all the steps, the page opens prompting me to save Tendance.htm. Any suggestions?

  16. Luis Kerr says:

    ShellieMil, make sure you’re using Tendance-Home page layout for the homepage.

  17. dz says:

    Nevermind. I figured it out. You need to set the General Setting on Central Admin from Strict to Permissive.

  18. Lee Agosila says:

    Same problem with ShellieMil,
    “(Article Page) Tendance-Home” and “(Article Page) Tendance does not show, but instead I see “(Page) Tendance-Home” and “(Page) Tendance”

    and also the Page Layout does not show also or disabled…

    Can anyone help me regarding this? Thanks!!

  19. Bobby Noonan says:

    Same problem as Lee & Shellie,


  20. henry says:


    I am helping a colleague with this theme. Its seems as if the sight displays well in all browsers except IE7 where the scrolling bar disappears.

    Has this happened with anyone else? Any ideas on the what the problem could be?

  21. Luis Kerr says:

    henry, change the scroll=”yes” in the body tag. Right now is set to scroll=”no”

  22. Prabhajee says:

    Hi all,
    Could someone please help me with the search box. I’ve got everything fine and well except the site search option and the Site action menu. They both are missing. How could I get them back.

    And I also see “(Article Page) Tendance-Home” and “(Article Page) Tendance” as “(Page) Tendance-Home” and “(Page) Tendance”

    And also the Page Layout option is also or disabled.

    Can anyone help me regarding this? Thanks!!


  23. Jesse says:

    This is working great but when I’m on announcement web part when clicked it brings up the master page. Any ideas on this?

  24. SJR says:

    Very cool, I got it up and working quickly…. luv the color scheme although I did opt to put in a different slider. Is it possible to make the outside borders (left & right) a different background color?

    Thanks in advance!

  25. Ruediger says:


    Is there any way to install this on Office 365s Sharepoint?
    Many thanks and best regards,


  26. Nagendra says:

    I implemented this theme in my site, it’s working great. When we inherit this theme to subsites, it will remove the Quick Lunch bar.
    But i want Quick Launch bar in my subsite.
    Please help me to add Quick Launch bar in subsites.

  27. Luis Kerr says:

    Nagendra, make sure you only have Tendance-Home page layout assigned for homepage. All other pages should inherit Tendance page layout so the Quick Launch is not hidden.

    It’s good! Good work!

  29. Paul says:

    Has anyone got this to work on an Office365 cloud SharePoint site?

  30. webbrewer says:

    It works fine in Office 365, at least the 2010 version. Haven’t tried it in 2013. I set it up on a publishing sub site if that makes a difference.
    It’s a good starting point for a master page, but the page layouts are disappointing – the home page is just an iframed html page. The slider and content area should be editable from page editor, using a picture library for the slider.

    To solve Reenu Issue, import the Tendance folder inside the style library and then change all references in Tendance master page
