Used in conjunction with Content Templates found under Themes & Layouts, this widget allows you to create content and then place it on multiple pages so that you don’t have to recreate it over and over. This makes it so that you can generate some content once, and reuse it around your site as needed.
How do I add this to a page?
- Click Edit Page
- Click either + Content or the Settings icon (down-facing arrow) which will be located to the right of Edit where you will need to select either Insert before or Insert after
- Choose the Content Templates widget
- Select the pre-defined content template you want to use by clicking on the plus sign to the right of it and the content template that you chose will show up on the page.
- Make sure to click either the Publish or the Save Draft option just as you would when you're editing pages.
Please note, unlike Shared Content placing content using a content template is a one-time, static drop of pre-setup content. You get the content template as it was set up then and if there are any changes to the content template it will not be reflected in any areas that it has been placed. Any changes will be shown only in new placed content templates. If you would like content to reflect changes please consider creating and using Shared Content.
