    Does anyone know if it is possible for me to change the IDs for my placeholders (in the masterpages that I uploaded as templates) without loosing the content I actually inserted?

    I would really appreciate the help.

    Thank you.

    Hello Ancuta,

    Unfortunately if you change the ID of any ContentPlaceHolder your content will disappear. We keep data for the controls location inside [sf_StagedCtrlLinks], so you could try to make some changes to the database and alter the ContentPlaceHolders ID value, but I do not recommend changing database tables directly.

    Best wishes,
