Creating Editable Regions - Spot Edit Tags
"Spot Editing" allows you to create editable regions
on a page while locking out the rest of the page. To set up spot
1) Go the "Settings" menu by clicking on the "Settings" button
in the upper right corner of the screen.
2) Change the "Edit Mode" from "Basic" to "Advanced". Advanced Edit
Mode gives you control over which pages can be edited, and what parts
of a page can be edited.
3) You will now see another option, "Global Edit". The global settings
for Advanced mode are "All" and "None". These are assumptions about how
the editor should treat your pages. If the setting is "All", then the
editor will assume all pages are EDITABLE unless otherwise indicated by
a special comment you place in the page's HTML code. If the setting is
"None", then the editor assumes that all pages are LOCKED unless otherwise
indicated by a special comment you place in the page's HTML code.
Therefore, if you want to set up "spot editing" for only one page on your
site, then you would choose "All" and then place a comment before
the part of the page that you want to lock from being edited. Conversely,
if most of your pages to be set up with spot editing, then choose "None"
and insert comments in the parts pages you want to be editable.
4) Insert appropriate tags:
<!-- NEEditMode = "basic" --> This sets the page for basic editing,
leaving the full page open to editing.
<!-- NEEditMode = "locked" --> This locks the page, preventing it from
<!-- NEEditMode = "advanced" --> This indicates that the page has designated
editable regions) within it.
The editable regions are defined by the following tags:
<!-- BeginNEeditable --> and <!-- EndNEeditable
For multiple editable regions in one page, use the following
<!-- BeginNEeditable "x" --> and <!--
(Where "x" is a different number for each editable region. The
closing tag is generic. Each editable region requires a closing tag. DO
NOT nest editable regions.)
Here are the rules: You may have more than one editable region per page.
If there is more than one editable region, then each region must be named
differently, and each region must open and close separately. There can
be no nested edit tags. Make sure to place both the open and close tags
within a table cell, or around a full table. Do not split a table with
the tags. In other words, do not enclose a table row, or a few table cells
within the tags, as this will cause the page to break.
