adding more than 1 editable area to a page

adding more than 1 editable area to a page

Now that I got my head around getting this set up, I have a general question. Let's say I have a page with 2 columns, 1 for textarea1, the other for textarea. I want both of those columns editable. When I go to add I apply the same page name identifier to both of those just with different content area identifier's. Also, do I need to paste the lines of code above my doc type from both of those? I know I will definately need the one line in the body area for each's just the "pre doc type info that I am wondering about"

so in a nut shell...if I have 1 page with 5 different editable areas
I will have 5 instances of the "body placement" code,
and 10 lines of code before my doc type

Is this correct?

Also, is there a point when you could have too many editable areas on any given page?

You will only need the two lines at the beginning of the page, no matter how many editable areas you create. These are the includes that point to the files the page needs to call (refer to).

The 'Page Name' should be the same for all the edit areas in one page, the 'content areas' need to be uniguely (and descriptively) named though.


5 instances of the "body placement" code,
Two lines only (one pair) of includes.

I don't think there is a theoretical limit to the number of editable areas (but probably a logistical one)!
