New feature for Liferay 7: Sharing Content between Sites
General Blogs April 24, 2014 By Julio Camarero Staff
In the WCM Team, we have finished a very cool feature for Liferay 7! It is already merged in master and will be available in the next millestone.
Before 7.0, when you wanted to share a structure or template between different sites you had to put this common content in the Global scope.
After 7.0, you can share these types of content with your child sites. As the administrator of a child site, you will be able to use all the structures, templates, categories, application display templates... etc from any of your parent sites that allows for it (this can be disabled in Site Settings).
At this point we have applied this sharing pattern to:
- Web Content Structures
- Web Content Templates
- Document Types
- Vocabularies and Categories
- Application Display Templates
- Data Definitions (Dynamic Data Lists)
What do you think?
Is there any other place in which you would like to see this applied?
