Edit content blocks in ID7 page layouts

This article describes how to change the content of editable regions in ID7 page layouts.
  1. Go to the page where you want to change the content.
  2. Select Edit content blocks – typically at the top left of the blocks in your page layout. The button is only available when you have contributor permission or above. If the button is not visible, contact the page owner for permission to edit the page.

  8. Leave Specify a date for this entry unselected.

  9. When you have finished editing your content, select Save changes.
  10. You're prompted to confirm the changes. SiteBuilder does not save history for content blocks and overwriting previous content cannot be undone. In the Overwrite permanently window, select Save.
  11. Return to the parent page to view your edited content.

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 subpage where the contents are edited (normally called 'hp-contents'). 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 subpage.
