Master page within a master page?

Post by alan_sh » Mon Apr 01, 2019 4:12 pm

I'm using master pages quite successfully - up till now.

I want to have another master for use by some pages which has all the same characteristics of my first master page, but with a side menu. I can create it with just the side menu in and tell the new master page to include the original one (Misc tab on the object properties) and it looks fine in the WYSIWYG program. But when I publish it, the elements of the first master pages do not get displayed - just the side menu.

So, is this a no-no? I have to re-create the second master page from scratch?

Thanks

Alan

I'm sorry, master pages cannot be nested.

Could you create the second master page with just the side menu and then use it as an embedded page?

Clone your master page, and then add in whatever extras you need, then name this page as 'Master-page-slide', or something like that. Then you have a choice of using whichever Master page suits you for the look or features you need.

But then you would have to change both pages if anything changed in the first master page.
