A previous thread our company started is here
in which it describes similar functionality would be coming to Sitefinity 4.0, is this no longer the case?
In your reply you say that controls added to the master page should not be accessed from the page level, what are your reasons for this? If we developed a production site with the current release of Sitefinity it would require our clients to drag on the correct content panes for every page they create. They cannot be added to the master page as you stated because then they would no longer be editable at a page level.
What do you recommend in this case? We have previouslly been pointed to a thread here
to create predefined templates - this isn't ideal though as it would require additional work for each site we develop, and for each template.
I briefly covered this in my previous post but we would like to something like the following:
-Create a custom template with a content block and image
-Lock the template so it cannot be edited by our client
-Client creates a page with the custom template
-The page automatically has a content block and image pane added - no manual work is required
---These are new content panes at a page level
-Any content added to these panes is saved at a page level only - not at a template level
Is anything like this currently possible? This is the way our current CMS behaves and we would like to replicate it. If you think this requirement is wrong could you state why and how one should go about this in Sitefinity.
