When module has selected "Display on all pages", and afterwards we want to change for example Title or Add Header/Footer HTML to it, after clicking "Update", those changes should be visible on all instances, not only on that particular page of a portal.

We undestand that setting under "Page settings" of the module are explicit, but what if we are showing module title on the module and want to change the title on all instances of that module, how do we achieve that if settings do not apply to all modules? Are we doing anything wrong or what, for example Start date does apply, but HTML header or Title does not. Why is that?

We're using dnn 07.02.02 but saw this issue on previous versions too.

Thanks for your reply.

if you unselect "Display on all pages" (on the original page), save changes, Change title/footer, save changes and check "Display on all pages" again, it should get applied to all pages. If you removed the module from certain pages, you might prefer using SQL to copy over your changes from affected tabmodules record to the others with same module id.

Hi, Sebastian.

Thanks for your reply. We are aware of this "override", but that kind of solution has some major flaws, like position of the module. Whenever we do that, application sets module to the bottom of selected pane, which is unacceptable for web administrators. In our opinion all the settings which are not under "Page settings" of the module should be able to synchronize when updated, after all it is "the same" (ID) module.

So what you described is the only solution at the moment?

the only alternative would be using SQL, which requires TabID and ModuleID:
DECLARE @TabID    Int = 110; -- set your tabID here
DECLARE @ModuleID Int = 222; -- set your ModuleID here
MERGE INTO {databaseOwner}[{objectQualifier}TabModules] T 
USING (SELECT * FROM {databaseOwner}[{objectQualifier}TabModules] WHERE TabID = @TabID) S
 ON T.ModuleID = S.ModuleID 
 WHEN Matched AND T.TabID != S.TabID and T.ModuleID = @ModuleID 
THEN UPDATE SET Header = S.Header, Footer = S.Footer; -- you may add other properties, but not TabModuleSettings
(Note: I haven't tested the Statement, you might need to adjust column names).

How do you find the 'original page' to edit?

Is it Admin, is it the Home page, the old home page, the late edited page . . .?
