Global blocks not global
I just discovered they are not all global. If I make a change to one that is, I get the yellow notification at the top and all is well. However, the majority of them are not. So, I decide that since I pasted this from the global scrapbook, I'll edit them from there too. That also made no difference.
What the heck is going on with these global blocks? It's sort of important that you can have consistent information across a website. Between the Access Denied stuff and now this it's getting quite frustrating.
Someone mentioned that the block will behave properly if it is created in a global scrapbook from within the scrapbook area in the dashboard. This seems to be true in my tests.
I used to create the block on a page (or a default page), then copy it to a global scrapbook. Creating it in the scrapbook initially seems to rectify the problem.
Still though, it is an issue.
Very new to C5, and playing with version 188.8.131.52 (as shown in the upper-right corner of the Dashboard)
I'm experimenting the same sort of problems with items in a Global (shared ?) Scrapbook being not so global after all...
One funny thing : while doing tests with a simple content item, I've noticed that editing its text only is not enough to see the change reflected in all the places where it's used. BUT when I edit its DESIGN then the new content IS updated everywhere. Strange ?!
Is there any place in the documentation where I could get sort a bird's eye view of cc5 ?
There is a wealth of detailed info on specific aspects, but I't be good to first have a general map of the land.
