In one of the next versions I would like to see a way that we can swap out templates easier.
The thought I have is where we name content areas in the templates that holds the content in the templates.
Template A is being used on a bunch of pages (say 50-100) in a section of your website with content areas named “Content1”, “Content2”, “Content3”, “Nav1”, “Nav2”, “Ads1”, and “Ads2”.
After a while you find that some tweaks are needed for the template or you want to update the look.
Templates B and C are then created with the named content areas the same as Template A and the templates must now be swapped out on the pages.
Instead of going through each one of the pages and copying the content to the new template a “Swap Template” feature that will allow you to swap templates for a series of pages. This would then be moving content from a page using Template A in a content area named Content1, Content2, etc. is placed into Template B content area named Content1, Content2, etc. also.
This would allow for significant time savings when the design/re-design of a site or a technical problem with the site arises without editing the actual template used so testing can be done with the new template before it is assigned. Being able to test a change is vital for me and with the current way the system works we have to either make the change to the template we are using directly or create the new template and copy and paste the info for each page.
