Propagation of Changes

If you make an update to a Page Fragment or Content Page Template, it doesn’t automatically propagate changes, but you can access the Usages and Propagation page to selectively propagate changes.

  1. From the Site Administration menu, go to Site BuilderPage Fragments

  2. Select the Collection containing the changed fragment.

  3. Open the Actions menu (Actions) for the Fragment and select View Usages.

The Usages and Propagation page shows a list of every Page, Page Template, and Display Page that uses the selected Page Fragment. You can then selectively propagate Fragment changes to any or all of the pages listed. You can use the various filters and selection options to apply updates to pages quickly.

To update a page or template,

  1. Select the page or pages you want to update by checking the box next to the page name.

  2. Click the Propagate icon ( Propagate)

    After you propagate changes, visit any affected page to verify there were no unexpected side effects of the changes.

    Changes to existing editable fields are not propagated since this overwrites content currently in content pages. To force propagation to content in an editable field, a developer must change the field ID. Any content created in that field no longer appears in the Content Page when the changes are propagated, but it remains in the database and can be retrieved using the old ID.

Next you’ll learn how to create your own Page Fragments.
