Creating an Inner Page Mirror

A mirror page allows you to display content from one page onto another page of your site without creating it twice. 

Creating a Mirror Page

  1. From the Toolbar, click on New, then select Inner Page Mirror.

    New > Inner Page Mirror
  2. The interface in Main Panel will change. Give your Inner Page Mirror a System Name.

    Best Practice: Keep names short; use only lowercase letters, numbers and dashes. Do not use spaces or underscores.

    Next, give the page a Title. The Title will appear in four places: The browser tab title, the headline of your page, the label in the navigation and in the page breadcrumbs.

    If you would like your Inner Page Mirror to display in the navigation, check the Include in Left Navigation box.
  3. Next, Search or Browse for the page on your site you would like to mirror. 

    Browse or search for page to mirror.
  4. Once these fields are complete, click Submit.

Publishing a Mirror Page

To publish an Inner Page Mirror, follow the same steps for Publishing content on your site. If the content on the page you are mirroring has changed, you would publish the source page and all its Relationships.

Publishing Scenario

If you have tuition information on your site under Undergraduate Admissions (site/undergraduate/tuition), but also want this information available from the Graduate Admissions section, you could create an Inner Page Mirror (site/graduate/tuition). If you need to update the content, the Inner Page Mirror cannot be edited directly; rather, you would edit the source page (site/undergraduate/tuition). Since the content is "mirrored" on the graduate page, it is updated simultaneously — but both pages still need to be published for the changes to appear on your website. Once you submit your edits to the source page (site/undergraduate/tuition), click the Relationships tab then and select Publish All Relationships. This will publish all pages on your site that reference the updated content.
