With a properly configured Drupal site, you can easily share content in numerous ways. One such method is the idea of parent-child relationship in which some or all of the parent's content may be re-used on one or more child pages. Some examples of where child pages may wish to share content include the following:
- Banners and photos
- Contact and location information
- Related links and documents
The idea behind content sharing is the desire to only edit content in one place (the parent), and have all the changes automatically propagate to all child pages. The decision of how children share parent resources is as simple as clicking user interface checkboxes. This allows limitless permutations between child pages. This approach is completely different from the idea of blocks built in Drupal that are managed in a different area and typically require either a list of pages to include/exclude or someone to write code to determine where/when blocks should be displayed (Yuk!).
At Webdrips, one of our philosophies is to never leave a customer with a site that's either difficult to use or difficult to manage. After all, we may be Drupal experts, but we don't expect the same of you.
