I'm looking for a way to allow my users to drop any number of types of blocks on to a page. I know how to do a block, but the way I understand them isn't really fitting into my functionality needs. My page has a sidebar. I'd like to be able to give my user the ability to drop say a Rich Text widget and a pre-defined dropdown list. I can create a Rich Text block and use it. My problem comes in when I create another page and I want to use the Rich Text block again. When I add text to the editor, it affects the first page I used the block with. I know I could create a block for each page but isn't that defeating the purpose of the block (reuse)?
Sounds like you are doing something wrong. Can you post the model of your block?
That isnt possible as of now I am afraid. You have to create a new block for each page.
