master page vs master frame

Post by navarro » Wed Feb 10, 2016 11:29 am

Hello,

I have already read what has been written about master pages and master frames, but I don't quite get the difference between these two concepts.

I have looked for the difference between master page vs master frame in this forum, but I haven't been able to find out.

Could somebody redirect me to the right post or tutorial?

Is it correct to say that a master frame can have as many master objects/pages as needed?

Is it correct to say that a master frame is used to reuse a predetermined layout along a project?

Thanks,

Jose

Maybe it's a matter of semantics.

Sure, master frame and master page are different things, but intuitively one thinks that master page is what one uses as a template in many pages. But, that is not what it seems to be in wwb, siince it is the master frame what is used sort of as a template since only a master frame can have a content place holder.

Is this assumption correct?

Hello Pablo,

Thanks for the link.

So I assume that master frame is sort of the page that contains all the elements that you want to reutilize in other pages whereas master page is the name given to each page that contains a master object.

And although it is true that you can use master pages/objects in a page, if you want to reproduce the format of a page, not its text, then what you use is a master frame.

So: master pages/objects go into a master frame that is used as "template" in other pages.

A 'master frame' is a constant frame where the content from another page will be insert inside the 'content place holder'.
A page can only have one frame and the content will be positioned 'inside' the content place holder. So the frame will be the same for all pages that use the master frame.

A 'master object' is a way to re-use the objects from another page.
Master objects can be placed anywhere on the page. The position of the embedded objects does not need to be the same for all pages.
A page can have multi master objects. For example, one for the navigation and another one for a sidebar or another shared section.
