Child sections inherit layouts from their parent sections.

If you want to change all of the pages on your site, change the layout on your homepage section.

Available Layouts

Left Navigation

Top Navigation

Top Navigation with right sidebar

If your site is using only one layout, you change it by going to your homepage and choosing the layout you want.

Do not change the layout on each section of your site. That will create extra work if you ever want to change it.

It is not necessary to set an Inheritable page layout. Subsections (child sections) will automatically inherit the layout used by its parent section.

 

Example:

Site structure for the wellness center

If this was your site, you would go to the section named Wellness Center to change the layout. All of the sections under Wellness Center will switch to the same layout.

 

NOTE:
If you are switching from Left Navigation to Top Navigation with right sidebar, you must change the name of your sidebar section from left_sidebar to right_sidebar.
