Content items

You use content items to store web page specific content in the form of elements.

Each content item you create is based on an authoring template. The authoring template can determine what element types are included in a content item, whether a workflow will be used or not and what workflow to use, and where the content item can be saved.

Each content item you create is the equivalent to a web page in a traditional website. Unlike traditional websites, a single content item can be linked to different areas within your website, or linked to a different website altogether. The changes you make to a single content item will be visible in every place you link the content item to.

The look and feel of a content item when displayed in a website will depend on what authoring template was used to create the content item, and what presentation template is used to display the content. The presentation template used will depend on the current context of the content item, and which template-map applies to the current context of the content item.
