Templates/Sections - reusable content?

Recommended Posts

I am really enjoying using 7.1 - however, I feel a little stuck..

Am I correct in saying:

- There is no way to copy a section to another page
- There is no way to custom build a page and turn into a template
- There is no way for me to make a boilerplate page or section block for reuse elsewhere
- There are very limited options when choosing an article/blog layout 

I have some wireframes to work from, but for instance, I can't see an easy way to match the article layout to the wireframe I have without custom building a page that I then get the customer to duplicate for each article.
But then, if they do that, they can't easy add feature blocks to the homepage to showcase the latest articles (without them doing it manually) e.g a custom page is not like collection, as pages aren't stored as blog/article posts.

Also it looks like 7.0 had a developer access, would it be better for me to go back to 7.0 and will that allow me to custom build templates for re-use?

I know how to code html and css, but feels like the system wants me to pick from prebuilt layouts rather than code or lay my own out.

Yes. All are correct. Hopefully SS will soon launch a copy between pages feature

There is a tool that can help copy sections from page to page, but I haven't tried it on 7.1. The tool also allows you to save the section to a Template Library and reuse it on another site.

Email me if you have need any help (free, of course.). Answer within 24 hours.
