Ability to "turn off" main content block in template

Richard 6 years ago 2

There is currently no option to not use the "Main" Content Block in templates. It would be very useful to have the ability to NOT use the "Main" Content Block IF another content block is selected in its place. We have many occasions where we require one content block in a page but want to add a unique Content Layout to it which is not accessible to Content Snippets or other Content Blocks

Not a bad idea, but might be a little while before we can get to it.

We have come across this before, however, in those situations we couldn't come up with a good reason why the Main Content block just couldn't be used.

Are you populating the main content block some other way on the page? Like through an API?

Maybe add the ability to rename the Main Content block. Could clear up some confusion/make it easier than being able to turn off the main content block. As far as I know the Main Content block doesn't have any restrictions with adding a content layout to it while restricting those layouts to another block/snippet.
