How do I use the same right content for multiple pages?

In page properties, you can specify that a page should use the right content from another page. Rather than copy and paste the same information in the right-hand side of multiple pages, create a ‘master’ page and then set other pages to retrieve the right content. When you edit the master, the retrieving pages' right content updates automatically. For example – we show the support links and search box in the right content of all SiteBuilder support pages.

Create right content in master page

  1. Create a new page in an appropriate location on your site.
  2. Go to Edit > Edit page properties.
  3. In the Change page properties section, unselect the Show in local navigation and Allow search engines checkboxes.
  4. Select the Save changes button at the bottom of the page.
  5. Add your content to the right-hand side.
  6. Select the Publish button in the toolbar.

Set pages to use right content of master page

For each page that should retrieve the same right content:

  1. Browse to the retrieving page.
  2. Go to Edit > Edit page properties.
  3. Expand the Advanced properties section.
  4. In the Special right-hand side drop-down menu, select Use RHS of another page.
  5. In the Web address box, enter the URL of the master page without the http://www2.warwick.ac.uk part. Alternatively, use the page picker to browse to the master page:

    For example, the master right content for SiteBuilder help pages is at:

    /services/its/servicessupport/web/sitebuilder2/faqs/static-rhs
  6. To ensure that any relative links in the master right content continue to work in the retrieving page, select the checkbox Rewrite links to point to linked location. You can override this by unselecting the checkbox. If you're not sure what the difference is, we recommend you leave this option selected.
  7. Select the Save button to save the changes to page properties. You should now see the master right content in the retrieving page.
