Display shared content on your page.
Last reviewed: April 14, 2021
This feature works comparably in both the Classic and Flex UI versions of the UBCMS. In the future, screenshots and language will be updated to reflect Flex UI.
Add the component to the page. There are two tabs: Shared Content Reference and Advanced.
Once the Shared Content Reference component is built, a publishing status indicator to “Go to source of” links is displayed, similar to indicators in the Websites Admin console.
Reference path: 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/...
Use dynamic reference: Check the box to enable dynamic reference. Dynamic references bypass caching, which makes the content you are sharing more up-to-date.
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.
Once you have built the Shared Content Reference component, a publishing status indicator to “Go to source of” links is displayed, similar to indicators in the Websites Admin console. As with the console, a green icon indicates published content, while red indicates it is not yet activated. In the example below, the displayed news story is activated 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.
