Template alterable boxes (Global boxes)
« on: February 21, 2008, 05:05:11 PM »
I have some wishes to WebsiteBaker, forgive me if this is old news and considered features already (again).

The Template
Everything that are in the template are on every page and are not alterable from the backend if not using the admin tool "Template edit". Will there be a new feature adressing this? It would be nice if you could define "template boxes" that could be altered from the backend and updated by the user WYSIWYG style.

Scenario
I will be making a site for a gym and they have their opening hours under the menu, so they always are visible regardless of what page are visited. And I want them to be able to change this easy.

How to solve it today?
Some would put the "information" in the template and some would put the "information" in a defined box but has to include the information on every page and therefor change every page everytime they change the "information". Two not so good choices when making a site, one of them is really bad i think =)

How do one solve this in other ways?

Hello!

Ehm, you know what boxes are and that you can define them easily?  Look here: http://help.WebsiteBaker.org/pages/en/advanced-docu/designer-guide/content-blocks.php

=) ofcource, just hard to explain..in short i want to have a box that when adding content to it, it shows on every page, just having one place to change the information.

Found someone else wit the same problem.

EDIT//
Now I see.
You want different blocks on different pages.
Maybe there is a way to use the code_modul in order to "include" specified blocks.
I can't figure out how to do that..
.. someone else any ideas?
