Two types of page layouts can be created in the Workarea.
- Page Layout - a PageBuilder template initially created by a developer, purpose is for design and placement of functionality on the Web page
- Master Layout - special type of PageBuilder template that includes specific dropzone called a Master Zone. Content authors can drag and drop a widget into other dropzones, but cannot edit the specified Master Zone.
When a master layout is published, you can use it like any other template. In some cases, you may want to modify the master layout, for example, add a drop zone, or change the master zone. You may also want to change page layouts built on the master design. Before modifying a master layout, consider that any page layout built upon the master is not updated after the master layout is modified -- you need to update and republish any related page layouts.
To make this process easier, Ektron has select APIs that can be used to create a Pagebuilder Page Layout programmatically. To download the code sample, view the article below:
