Working With Shared Content
Stewart.com admins have created a wide variety of content that can be shared by multiple websites. This content is known as shared content. Shared content lives in a single place and can be used on a microsite with just one component, called the Reference Component.
A few things to keep in mind before using shared content.
- Check to make sure your site is not already using the shared content.
- Ensure that the content is appropriate for your website/audience. Some shared content is only applicable to a specific location or service/product offering.
- If you are unsure about a piece of shared content, contact your Marketing Manager.
Browsing Shared Content
Shared content is located at the path below, as seen in the screenshot. Content can be previewed by double-clicking the "Name" field in the right pane of the Web Content Management.
Here is list and description for each directory listed.
Bios – All employee biographies live here. Adding staff bios is more of an advanced authoring technique, so please contact your marketing manager to have the edits made for you or schedule a live demo to learn these steps. An intermediate understanding of Adobe® Experience Manager authoring is required.
Global Shared Content – This is where all public, global shared content lives. This content is generally safe to use on any microsite. Authors should look here to share content.
Microsites – This shared content is specific for certain local microsites. For instance, all Nevada STC sites shared some content, so it is stored here. If you maintain multiple microsites and feel it would be more efficient to use shared content than manually recreating the same content, contact your marketing manager to add content here.
Spotlights – This content is used by our Stewart Spotlights website, stewart.com/spotlights.
Using Shared Content
You will then be taken back to the window with the drop down box only now the path will be populated with the content that was selected in the previous step. Your path should look like this.
At this point, you will need to remove the last piece of that path, including the slash so the new path will look like this.
Click "Ok", and the shared content will show on the page. Now start a workflow to get the page published by stewart.com admins.
