Multiple subheadings

I have built a template for a client (who knows no HTML) which has several layouts but within most layouts there is usually:

<multiline label="Article Body">
   <h3>Subheading</h3>
   <p>Insert copy here</p>
</multiline>

The problem is that on occasion the client needs a second subheading (or more). I thought that by predifining a subheading in the template they would just be able to copy and paste the subheading to create a new one but when you do this the text is copied but the html element is not (ie it gets pasted as a paragraph rather that an h3).

The only way around this that I can think of would be to have them so into the source editor, but this could be very intimidating for someone who doesn't know html.

Any suggestions?

Hi carlmanson, welcome to the forums. My suggestion is to create a new layout for this subheading/multiline pairing, like:

<layout label="Subheading with copy">
   <h3><singleline label="Your subheading here"</singleline></h3>
   <multiline label="Article Body">Your content here</multiline>
</layout>

Using layouts like this will result in the template being as unbreakable as possible - hope this helps!
