I have a page with components placed in a parsys. Is it possible for the child pages to have those same components in the same parsys automatically?
Here is specifically what I am doing. I am using the blog template to make a blog. I have added search, pages, archives components to the sidebar. When new pages are created under the blog page, I would like them to have the same thing in their sidebar.
Is this something that needs to be done within a custom template only?
Have you looked at the iparsys component? It does exactly what you are describing.
