skin layout for site map, pagenotfound etc

Hi Joe,

I'm currently running on V 2.3.5.3 MSSQL multi-site mode. What I am wanting to accomplish is for some specific pages (SiteMap.aspx & PageNotFound.aspx) to have navigation bars present as the rest of the site(s) does.  Looking at the code, I see that these pages are linking to App_MasterPages/layout.master.aspx, yet they also seem to be inheriting from the skin specific master.layout file.  I don't understand what process is happening that these pages can pick up the styles from the skin but omit the menu items.

Can you possibly point me in the right direction of how this all works?

Thanks,

Beth

The following set of keys will allow you to customize where and how menus appear on all of the special pages. You can add this block to your user.config, set them as you like, then make a small change in web.config and save it so your site picks up the changes.

       <!-- Customize hidding/unhiding of menus throughout different parts of the site -->
       <add key="SuppressMenuOnBuiltIn404Page" value="false"/>
       <add key="HideMenusOnLoginPage" value="true" />
       <add key="HideMenusOnRegisterPage" value="true" />
       <add key="HideMenusOnPasswordRecoveryPage" value="true" />
       <add key="HideMenusOnChangePasswordPage" value="true" />
       <add key="HideAllMenusOnProfilePage" value="false" />
       <add key="HidePageMenuOnProfilePage" value="true" />
       <add key="HideAllMenusOnMyPage" value="false" />
       <add key="HideMenusOnSiteMap" value="false" />
       <add key="HidePageMenusOnSiteMap" value="true" />
