I used the module creator to create a generic module, within which I made a container by adding a div with a unique id and the attribute runat=server
I embedded this footer module in a layout file.
The containers that i added to my layout file show a "preview" (editable area) in edit mode, but the footer module's container isn't showing a "preview".
Does my generic footer module need to inherit from a class so that the container is visible in edit mode?
Thanks for any tips.
