Shared Content can redirect visitors to other UBCMS pages or external sites.

Any regular UBCMS page can be created using the Redirect Template, but by using shared content, you can also build a teaser that provides more context for the visitor and also reveals this context in a carousel or list in the UBCMS. And these pages can redirect to UBCMS, or to non-UBCMS sites.


  1. Build a shared content page using the News Template. 
  2. Keep the Date Created (needed to support meaningful date-sorting).
  3. In the page Properties, edit the teaser title, description, and image to build a decent teaser (or use the exposed teaser at the bottom of the page).
  4. In page Properties, on the Advanced tab, add a Redirect URL (can be within the UBCMS or to a non-UBCMS site).
  5. You can now delete the rest of the page’s contents.
