Help with layouts

First application with yii…trying to determine the best way to provide content in the following scheme:

  • MAIN NAVIGATION               

  • VIEW HEAD w/ db calls  (using main template)

  • SUB CONTENT                             

in other words… within the VIEW head is information and secondary tabbed navigation for the sub content area. I started by creating a view that contains the section head information, but am now challenged with varying the content below via tabs in the sub content area. Ideally would like to call that content via ajax calls, but not sure if I should be looking for nested layouts or the View widget (if the latter, not quite sure how to implement normally and via ajax).


Nevermind… got it
