[Pro] Copying master items from other pages?

Although my 30 page website uses a master template, my home page doesn’t. There are several reasons for that, which are too long to go into.

Recently, I decided that I want the footer on all of my web pages, including the home page, to be consistent. To do this I thought I could simply copy the master template controlled footer from another page. Unfortunately, that didn’t work.

Is there another solution or will I need to create a brand new home page, using the master template, and simply move all of my items over. And if I take that approach, how can I avoid breaking every link in the site by assigning a new home page?

BTW, I’m still using FWP 6.1.2.

I’d like to upgrade to FWP 7 but I’m right in the middle of a big project and I’m concerned about backward compatibility and the actions I’m using in the site.

You can run 2 versions of FW (or three) at the same time. I have 5.6.5, 6.1.2 and 7.0.4 live on my setup.

Dave, how is 7.0.4 in terms of stability? One think I really like about 6.1.2 is it’s rock solid. :slight_smile:

Dave,

If you have more than one version of FWP on you system, just out of interest how do you manage the Actions in the Application Support Folder please?

Not an issue - 6 and 7 share the same action folder but 5.6.5 does not.

Do get some error messages about the odd action but you just have to make sure you are aware.

I managed to figure this out with Ernie’s help. As long as you add or copy the regions into an existing master page wrapper this works fine. Thanks Ernie!
