Change section once for entire site. (via web admin)

So I am working on converting an existing site to a CMS and I am wondering how can it be so the client can change the site wide section without having to do it for each page?

For example, the left third of the clients' footer is for small announcements. It could be text, an image etc but if I make it a CMS region on each page, won't the client have to click on each page in the admin and change the info to the new one?

create a plugin page and add that CMS Section to the plugin page.

then you can add the plugin page to each page in the site.

Are you talking about using Framework Builder? Is that the same as what I was thinking about doing:

I was thinking about making a kind of "Master" page that isn't included in the menu, but had the same assets to it. Then I would take the code generated on the master page and put it wherever I wanted the section.

For example:

<?php echo WA_getCMSContent($database_PowerCMSConnection, $PowerCMSConnection, 'Master', 'Tagline'); ?>

Putting that on the homepage in the tagline area.

Without flooding the forum with another thread...I got everything to work but I lost some jQuery Functionality. On this page - www.djembroiderycenter.com/services.php I had a working jQuery accordion setup. Then I made the section an powerCMS area and it doesn't work anymore. All of the correct code is there when I check the sections source code view. Should I set it up some other way?

the problem is caused by conflicting version of jquery on the page.



near the top of the head section, you include jquery version 1.9.1
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.9.1.js"></script>
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/ui/1.10.3/jquery-ui.js"></script>

then further down you include version 1.4.2:
<script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.4.2.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
var currentYear = (new Date).getFullYear();
$(document).ready(function() {
$("#year").text( (new Date).getFullYear() );
});
</script>

those 2 are causing a conflict, causing the accordion to fail.
