Dear DotNetNuke 8.0.3 Pros,

What exactly does Display Module On All Pages do?

Please help, with this question about HTML Module content sharing.

It seems to me that this setting...

> Edit Page, > Settings, > Module Settings, > Advanced Settings, > Display Module on All Pages

...will actually create an individual INSTANCE of the given Module and place that INSTANCE on each page; that is, it will NOT show a COPY of the given module on each page.

Note that I make this claim because I put a module on my Home page, I set Display Module on All Pages to Checked, I then saw the module on other pages, but when I deleted the module from the Home page I noticed that did NOT delete the Module from the other pages.

Is my understanding correct here?

Please advise.

Thanks.

-- Mark

If you want the module to be deleted from all pages, you'll first need to remove the "display on all pages" option. Then you can delete the modules from the single page on which it resides.

Evoq goes a step further and designates a page that is "master" for the module. You can only delete it or edit it from that page.

Mark,

Joseph is right, you first have to uncheck the "Display on all pages" checkbox, then you can delete it.

What it does exactly is: It places the same instance of the module (and not a copy!) on all pages, the content and the module settings are the same everywhere. Technically spoken, you get a record in the TabModules tables for each page with the same module ID, but different page IDs (TabID). The Module Settings are the same for all of these, but not the TabModule Settings, which can differ. That allows you for example to use different containers or place the module in different panes depending on the page.

Happy DNNing!

Hi,
Whenever am giving 'display in all pages' its working in development environment, but whenever am moving the site to another server or packaging, modules of each page has been became individual ie.not a master module. changing in master page not affecting in other pages. what cause is this?

In this case before am moving to new server from development, i need to add the module individual pages as reference of master one. Then what is use of 'display in all pages' what need to do to avoid those kind issues in future instead of adding one by one ?
