Content embedding is something that will typically be done during the site building process, however it is still good to understand what these specific tags are doing on your page.
- feature content that exists on another page and/or in another workbench
- avoid making duplicate/redundant pages
- allow your desired content to automatically update when the original content is changed
Short Code Method:
To find the Node ID (NID) of a page, just use the ID next to your name, date and time listed just above the buttons at the bottom of the page. If you do not have editing rights to the node you want to insert into another page, please file a help ticket to the Web Team and we can provide NIDs quickly. Note that this tag uses two sets of brackets and the others do not.
The following code would then need to be added to the page you want the excerpt displayed on.
[node site="www" id="396" excerpt="visitorparking"]
You also have the ability to override the "Style Tags" field of Promo Block content using the "style-tags" attribute. Any classes listed in this attribute replace those defined in the node's Style Tags field. For example:
[node site=www id=15523 style-tags="box-type-2 width-50 align-left height-225 bordered"]
