STUCCO - How to change items within a global area
And since I'm really new at this, this sounds like something I don't want to do. So how do I alter the content without screwing the global parts up?
The point of a global area is that it is used on many pages. It allows you to change content once and have that change appear on lots of pages. Imaging you wanted to change your logo - it would be painful to have to do this on every single page.
You can in fact use the dashboard to manage global areas and stacks. Go to dashboard-->stacks & blocks, and set the dropdown top left so that it says view global areas. Then you can edit each block, and, more importantly, you can roll back any changes to previous versions - Yes, Global Areas are versioned just like pages are, so even if you do make a mess, you can recover from it. The only exception is if you "clear" the area, so don't do that.
Thank you again my friend
