How to Add this Content to Your Page

Adding this content to your website is simple. Use a Shared Content Reference component and point the component to the shared content location of the content as noted in the above table.

If you wish to add the Visitor's Guide so that it displays within your own site, use /content/shared/university/page-content/visitor-s-guide as the address within the Shared Content Reference.

For example, if you were the School of Nursing, instead of linking out to the UB home page (left image), the content would now appear within your own site's context (right image), with your own branding, navigation and other elements.

UB's visitor's guide displayed as it is found on the main UB home page.
