In this chapter, we examined connected postings in CMS. Connected postings are one mechanism within CMS to allow repurposing of content across one or more sites run on a single implementation of CMS. We discussed what connected postings are and how they operate within CMS. We talked about the relationship between connected templates and connected postings, explaining that connected postings can only be created using connected templates. We then looked at how to create connected postings using the Web Author and the PAPI. For the PAPI example, we provided a full code example.
Once we covered the basics of connected postings and templates, we reviewed some of the workflow implications. Connected postings, because of their nature, sometimes operate differently from a posting based in a single channel. A collection of connected postings could potentially follow different workflow paths, based on where change content was submitted for approval.
