I created a new master page template keeping the desing/code of the old one, and now I can't find the web parts on my site, they seem like if they were deleted but I just change the template with the exact same code-zone etc
Any help would be apreciated, thanks
The web parts are saved to the template, not the layout. So even if you kept the same zones, you have a new template, with no web parts saved to it.
You would have to copy the webparts from the other template and then move them to the new one.
Do you have a page placeholder webpart on the master page? If you scroll to the bottom of the master page template, do you see a bunch of grayed out zones stating they are not part of the template?
