We have a requirement to allow editors to insert copy into a page whilst allowing them to choose from multiple options for the way the text is laid out.
For example, they need to be able to choose from:
* 2 column div, 50% width each
* 2 column div, 30% left, 70% right
I've done this before by creating a document type for each 'module', adding the required ones underneath the page, and then using a Universal Viewer on the page pointing to these documents with a Hierarchical Transformation. It worked quite well, but I'd like to improve on this by allowing the editor to edit the copy directly in the page instead of having to go to each document type to change copy/image/whatever. They should be able to see the layout on the page as they edit (i.e. click in the left column of the div and enter text, click in the right and enter text).
I can't find a way to do this, hoping that either someone's come up with a solution before, or there's something built in to Kentico that I don't know about.
Oh, I did try using layout widgets, but you don't get to see the actual content on the page, just and icon representing the widget. Also tried widget zones, which was slightly better, but you still can't edit directly on the page.
