Sitewide Includes

I know this has been addressed before, but I haven't seen anything recently. It would really, REALLY be nice if there was the ability to create sitewides or include blocks that could be added to a page as it was being built.

For instance, I use a right column for a Google Adsense tower, a Facebook/Twitter like button bar and other common elements. It would be very nice if instead of having to put those elements on each page individually, then go to each page and make edits if I have to make changes, that there would be the option to plug in a block of code. This code would be able to be edited one time and then any place on the website where that code has been implemented would automatically update.

I know this has been requested numerous times. I also know that having come from another website building service (that charges a LOT more), but offers include/sitewides, that a lot of those users would come to Yola in a heartbeat if it had sitewide/includes.

It shouldn't have to be a hack or the clunky create a template...which if understand correctly, if you have to make a change to something, you still have to go into each individual page.

Hi Cheryl,

I agree whole heartedly that such a facility would be fantastic.

This is a workaround and it is limited and here goes: if you wish to add such elements to either the Footer or the Header areas you can do that within the Site Tracking Codes but not within the body proper. It's success really is limited to your vision and design I guess and not for everyone or every project would it be suitable.
