Creating re-usable "blocks"?
Author Text

I'm checking out RocketCake for a website project. It's going to be a "blog-ish" setup, where I'll be updating it with articles over time, but not so much where a full CMS is really that advantageous and would bring more overhead and maintenance than it's worth.

What I'm looking to do is be able to have a set "block" of content that will be replicated and re-used for each new article I publish. Each will have a "feature image", a title, a short description, etc..

I'm wondering if there's a way to save something like that out as a custom "block" that I could just drop into the editor when I'm ready to add a new article? Each would come with the sections ready to be filled with content.

I suppose I could just save that block of HTML out to its own separate file and then copy and paste it in, but maybe the software has a way of doing that that I haven't seen yet.

In CoffeeCup's HTML Editor, I think they call them "snippets", for anyone who might be familiar with that editor.

Yes, right now, there is no such feature. You could probably use Master pages a bit like that, but it's not exactly what you need. Will see if I can add such a feature in a future release.

This sounds a bit similar to my "custom container" request of a week or two ago...

What I have done is just do up a container that's my "template" and stick it at the bottom of the page, then highlight it, and ctrl-c, ctrl-v it to wherever else I may need it.

If only the page up and page down keys worked to get me to the template faster...

Anyway, so here's another vote for this concept.

I am new to Rocketcake, and I like it very much :)

I'm in search for a similar feature as asked for in this thread.
I tried to nest master-pages... but that does not seem to work.
Maybe I am missing something?

I am working on a website for a platform to let non-hierarchical organisations collaborate.

Any quick response to find a way to nest master pages would help greatly to keep an action on climate justice going.

No, sorry, nested master pages are not supported, but true, that would probably be very useful. We have planned a similar feature for the next updates, let's see.
