Change header global areas to non-global areas

Permalink Browser Info Environment
Hello,

is it possible to change global areas in the header, such as global header nav, in to non-global areas? I need to customize the navigation / header areas for various pages.

Thank you in advance for your feedback!

Hi there. The only way to update an area to make it global/non-global is to edit the code with in the theme.

This is not something we recommend, but if you do wish to do this, then make sure you back up all of the files.

Please also note that any theme package updates would override your changes, so please make a note of them.

A 'normal' area (non-global) looks like this:
$a = new Area('Normal Area');
$a->display($c);

Whilst a global area looks like this:
$ga = new GlobalArea('Global Area');
$ga->display();

You can edit the theme if you wish, we can not help you with this and can take no responsibility if you break the theme.
