I was wondering when I insert a web part zone into a page layout, it sets the zone ID with a long ID something like ...
Is there a reason for this or should I give it my own meaningful ID?
Is this in designer? I presume so, the only stipulation is zoneIDs are unique, and that is all Designer is doing. I always make mine unique and meaningful, topZone, middleZone etc.
(If it is designer please add designer and year 2010, 2013 etc to your tags)
