#our menu should be template [section]
...then just like other pages: dup pages; edit template if needed - will be updated everywhere
...maybe better to just use headers with links instead of menu - more flexible? can assign CSS that makes link disabled/look selected for certain pages? or can with Uber [looks like]??

Feb26/21: WAIT... why need template?? now can just use UM widget
...AND just CSS for layout section? YES! [can't use templates for page layout. templates are either not editable on page OR disconnected from original (if import via folder icon)]
