    Using Inheritance for TWO Templates
    #1 by gbmagnolia60 on May 9, 2017 2:35:33 AM

    I am testing Magnolie 5.5.1 CE and am stuck with the inheritance feature. If I create child pages with the same template, all is fine.
    Is it possible, in Mg CE, to share inheritance among TWO templates? In an EE version I would use "prototype". I also can't use the "Site" app, since the module is a companion to a normal Web site, which most likely will use that allowed one Site spot.

    Hello Giancarlo

    What is a "TWO template"?

    Note that you also can use a prototype with the community edition (CE).
    On CE you have only one site - but on this site, you can define a prototype.
    Depending on the bundle or webapp you are using, the site on a CE bundle maybe optimized for travel demo. But you can configure it for your own requirements.


    Your last sentence ...
    >> I also can't use the "Site" app, since the module is a companion to a normal Web site, which most likely will use that allowed one Site spot. <<
    ... i do not understand.

    Btw. I recommend to use the latest version - atm this would be Magnolia 5.5.4

    i hope this helps,
