Introducing Components

What are Components?

Components are smaller, reusable pieces of code which help to make it easier to build and maintain all websites including large and complex websites. The code is put into the component and then the component substitutes itself for the piece of code within it wherever it is placed in your website. They offer a way of adding repeated complex content to your pages.

You can bring content into a page or several pages easily and they can also be placed within presets, the page body description or within page associated content.

Components are characterised by being surrounded by curly "{" brackets. For example, the page related items component, which is {*pg_related} (without asterisk).

There are two types of component, custom components and built-in components. Built-in components offer a substitution for pages and content which can be found already within your website whereas custom components can be made by an administrator to substitute in specific desired content that is not already available in a built-in component.

A list of all your website components and brief instructions on how to use them can be found within My Site > Components.
