Adding Master Pages to the Sitemap

With master pages, you can ensure that any repeating page elements, such as nav bars and footers, maintain their position throughout your site. This is because master page contents only appear on the pages where the master is applied—these contents can only be edited from the master page itself. You can access master pages from the bottom portion of the Plan Mode window. Every new site you create contains a single, editable master page, but you can add as many master pages as you like.
