Masterpages & Process Management System

Masterpages handles the heredity of pages with their child-pages and all the following update processes.

Masterpages is a Woodwing extension who manages the heredity of a page (masterpage) to different child-pages in other editions (regional edition etc.). Starting from a page planning system where you can define the heredity of the affected pages, the extension builds up the whole structure in Enterprise. In each affected child-edition the page can be planned on a different position.

During the first checkin-process the page will be copied - driven by a status - to the required child editions and all headers, styles, fonts etc. will be adapted automatically to the definition of the child-edition settings. Changes on articles or images can be affected to a subselection of editions who were inherited. This gives the possibility to spread automatically contents into different editions and also to create some different content of these inherited pages.
