Local or Global when adding sections to header or footer

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

As i understand the header and footer part is a global scope through the whole site and cannot be customized for each page or post. Now, when adding sections to header or footer that has both global and local options, do I have to configure the global option to make the content stick through the whole site? Or is it okay to only configure the local option since it's already inside a global scope?

Hi clinton4 - You are correct in that having a section in an area with a global scope will carry that section throughout the site. As far as the second part goes, you can, however, use the local options to change things within a global section. For instance, if I drag the Columnizer section into my footer and configure the local options instead of global, it would show up on every page but I'd be able to select different sidebars, etc for different pages within my site.


Have you searched the forums yet or checked out the DMS user docs?
