Display shared content on your page.
Last reviewed: November 14, 2022
This component has one tab.
Once the Shared Content Reference component is built, a publishing status indicator is displayed as well as a “Go to source of” helper link, allowing you to click through to the source page.
Click the wrench icon to 'configure' these settings.
Reference: Click the magnifying glass to select the page from which you would like obtain content. Normally this will be shared content, and the path will thus begin /content/shared/...
Description: Provide optional text that is displayed in Author when the content is not visible; e.g. for code in an HTML Snippet.
Use dynamic reference: Check the box to bypass server caching, which ensures the content you are displaying on your page is current with the original version.
Host page: By default the page that "hosts" the shared content is the same page that the reference component is on, so leave this field blank to use your current page as the the host.
WHen a Shared Content Reference is loaded with content, switch to Preview Mode to see a helpful “Go to source of” link, plus a publishing status indicator.
A green icon indicates published content, while red indicates it is unpublished, and blue indicates it has been modified. In the example below, the displayed news story is live and shows a small green icon.
In the same way you can pull in an entire page of shared content, you can also selectively pull in some of the page's individual components.
