Same CMS wrapper for multiple pages

Hi all,

I am using October CMS with Blocs and want to set up a sidebar that’s editable in the CMS. Can I have one editable area and then use it for all pages on the website? So that I make a content change once in CMS and it’s reflected on all pages of the website?

Right now, when I name the CMS wrapper with the same ID in multiple pages, those id’s are becoming id-1, id-2, etc. So I have to edit those areas separately in the CMS.

Thank you.

Yes, without knowing exactly how you have this setup, or your work flow. I would make this a partial and add it to your page layout.

I usually make the theme in Blocs, export then reorganise everything to suit.

Hey, thank you for the suggestion. Seems to me that this might work for me.

So you would create a website in Blocs, export it and create a partial in October CMS? Is there anything I can read to learn more about this technique?

Mainly the docs on OctoberCMS main site.

I really just developed my own workflow (well its evolving).

I approach it that my design is in Blocs, but I am creating the content in OctoberCMS.
