Ok, so local overrides global if set?

I'm trying to figure this out... If I put something in the header area it appears on every page... although there are local and global options? What's the idea there? I've been ignoring the header and putting stuff in sections below the header which can be turned on and off.

So a crude example would be:

 

The header bg color is black all the time (using the area settings dropdown), but on this one page, you want to make it a different color. So, in the local option, on that page, you do whatever you want within those options, so it only shows on that page.

I'm a little confused myself on how this works. I built my homepage with all of the elements that I need. I go to my other pages and the same exact modules are on those pages too. I never specified anything in the "Global" sections except for the nav, header and footer. What am I doing wrong?

KristaD did you place any items in the header section?

 

Anything placed in the header section gets duplicated on every page on your site. If you did not then save your homepage as a template. Then go to your new page and make an adjustment then save it as another template and see if the change affected the home page or vica versa.

 

Good luck.

Header, Footer are global Templates meaning that anything added to these templates areas will appear throughout your site.
