    Hi Ben, are you using a Master Page (.master file) for your template? If so you'll likely need to edit this file directly to make changes to non-content areas such as header and footer.

    If you're not using master pages, you should be able to modify the templates under the Design -> Page Templates section. Some templates are based on other templates, so make sure you're opening the base template, as that will be the most editable.

    This section will also tell you if you are using a master file and its location in the file system.

    I hope this is helpful!

    Many thanks for the response. It is using a master page although I cannot edit the structure of this? It allows me to change only very basic options in the interface and only within the body. I can dinf the master page although I do not have access to do root directory only through the CMS itself. Does this present a problem?

    Again my thanks

    To edit a master file you'll need to use an editor like Visual Studio or notepad and edit the file directly. This can be done via ftp or if you have access to the full original project in visual studio and open the master file from there.

    You'll need to make your changes then reupload them back to the webserver via ftp.
