Hi there, have a master page page template that uses header and footer elements that I need to use within a different page template. So I wanted to take my header element (which consists of 3 page layout sections and multiple content blocks).
So I want to make that section into it's own stand alone template and then be able to drag that onto the new page template. Is this possible? (Note that i want to use the page template designer interface to make the header and footer template because the work has already been done using those features.)
FWIW, my experience is that a masterpage template needs to be the base of a template hierarchy.
However, from there on, there is nothing stopping you making the structure as complex as you like, and from creating custom layouts that you drag & drop according to your requirements, to build up a library of templates.
I use masterpage templates and custom layouts all the time (including custom layouts inside custom layouts) with the one main limitation being that they are incompatible with Sitefinity's responsive design system.
