Edit ID7 page layouts

ID7 page layouts are made up of editable content blocks. Each slide, news feed or feature is contained within a content block. This enables you to change content in parts of the page without affecting the overall layout.

The following image shows a typical home page – there's a slideshow, text in boxes and a featured item with a background image:

The slideshows and content blocks are in data list pages directly beneath your page. To view them, either:

  • select the Edit slideshow, Edit content blocks or Edit tabs buttons in your page layout
  • go to Edit > More, then select the Sub-pages tab

For example, the ‘slideshow plus feature’ layout above has two data list pages beneath the home page named slides and hp-contents:

Sub-pages tab

Note: data list pages do not show previous edits on the History tab. It's not possible to restore previous versions.

Note on permissions

When you come to make your page layout page live or visible to most users, you need to ensure they also have viewing permissions on the subpages where the contents are edited (normally called something like 'hp-contents' or 'hp-slides' etc). Otherwise users will only see the top page, and get the layout grey blocks where the content should be, but no actual content, as that is being pulled from the particular subpages.
