David,

Can you give some more details about what you mean by use a page as a header? Do you want to make a page a child page of another page that already has a navigation? If so that has to be defined when you first create the page. When you create the page, enter the page name, hit next, and then specify "Use a Master Page" under Starting Point.

Thanks!

I have attached a screen grab .. when I select Customer Header it requests a Unique ID for the header bit I cant see any place to allocate an id to the page I want to assign to be the header. In the url for each page is a number (3 digits) but that doesnt seem to work

David,

The unique id is a way to identify the header element within the Skuid framework. You can't actually specify a page to be the header of another page; instead, you could put your own unique id such as "myheader" in that spot if you wanted to be able to access the header in javascript or a CSS resource. If you have a page with custom navigation and you want to build other pages that use that same navigation, your best solution would be to make the nav page a master page and create child pages off of it (tutorial about that here). Otherwise, you'll have to build your header on this page as you want it to look.

Thanks!
