    I"m having issues with the overlay edit mode working correctly.  My guess is that it is because I have to do some non-standard divs.  In lieu of spending a ton of time troubleshooting since it works fine in classic edit mode, is there a way to easily turn of the overlay mode from cms users/editors?

    Hello Thomas,

    You could change the default page edit mode from Overlay to Classic. To achieve this you need to do the following:
    1. Go to My Preferences > Page editor settings
    2. Select Classic mode
    3. Click Save Page editor settings to save the changes

    Hope this helps.

    Sincerely yours,

    I find that when you create your ContentPlaceHolder it's best to use the ending /> technique

    <asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="cphBanner" runat="server" />

    works better in overlay mode then using

    <asp:ContentPlaceHolder id="cphBanner" runat="server">
    </asp:ContentPlaceHolder>

    Hope this helps

    Hello Matt,

    I have noticed this behavior on particular websites when there is a space between tags - opening and closing tag of the ContentPlaceHolder control.

    All the best,
