SharePoint Publising Page Problem MOSS Page Setting Error - Value does not fall within the expected range

When try to access publishing page or page setting getting error “Value does not fall within the expected range” . This error only happens when you copy an aspx page using SharePoint designer from one server to another severs (development server to production server). Also if you copy pages in the same server and changed alternate access mapping url.


  1. You cannot copy and paste the aspx page using SharePoint designer. First, export the aspx page using SharePoint designer to a physical file.
  2. Open the aspx page with notepad and search on the “mso:PublishingPageLayout”. You will notice your development portal URL is there.
    <mso:PublishingPageLayout msdt:dt=”string”>http://xxxdevelopmenturl/_catalogs/masterpage/BlankWebPartPage.aspx, Blank Web Part Page</mso:PublishingPageLayout>
  3. Replace your development URL (xxxdevelopmenturl) to the production URL or remove http://xxxdevelopmentur and save it.
  4. Open your production site with SharePoint Designer and import the modified aspx page.

If you found this error in production server open site using SharePoint Designer go to TaskPane-->Hyperlinks and edit hyperlinks of layouts like above sample:
By: /_catalogs/masterpage/BlankWebPartPage.aspx

Also you can fix programmatically check url:

Also Check this if you found your any modifications Navigation setting aren't saved.
