Regions

Regions are blocks on your pages that contain your content. Clicking the black "Add" button on the region will bring up the Add Module popup. Multiple modules can be added to a single region. This allows you to easily add text, links, videos, or any other information you like in any order you like on a page. You can also move modules between regions on a page.

There are three types of regions: standard, section, and global.

Standard & Default Regions

Standard regions are generally where you put the main content of the page. They have nothing on them except the black "Add" button.

There is a special type Standard region called Default. In some site designs, this region will automatically display the page name at the top.

Standard regions have a simple black Add button. Default Regions include the Page Title.

Section Regions

Section regions will display whatever is in the region globally throughout the section. A "section" is defined through the navigation. If content is added to the top level page in the navigation, all subpages will display it as well. If content is added to a subpage, it will display through its subpages as well as displaying what's on the top level page.

Section regions have the word Section next to the Add button. Modules in this region will appear on every page within the section, as defined by the navigation structure.Sections are defined through parent and child pages.

Global Regions

Global regions will display whatever is in the region globally throughout the site. It does not matter where the content was added or deleted, the region will be updated.

Global regions have the word Global next to the Add button. Modules in this region will appear on every page.

Regions on Detail Pages

Certain modules have multiple views, generally an index and a detail view. The index view will display a list of items and the detail view displays the details of a specific item. A good example of this is the Blog/News module. The index view being the list of articles and the detail view being the post itself.

Modules added to detail views will not persist, meaning that they will go away after leaving the page. This is because those pages don't really "exist" as pages.

How do I know I’m on a detail page?

Look at the URL. If it looks similar to this, you're on a detail page:
http://mysite.com/page/subpage/m.modulename/##/view/##
