Shared modules appear in more than one page layout. This is a powerful way to reuse modules: you can create one of the other modules described in this section, and then you can incorporate it into as many page layouts as possible.

Creating a shared module

To create a shared module:

  1. In the header, click add.
    Open the create menu to create a shared module.png
  2. Select Module and a blank content edit form corresponding to the selected content type appears.
  3. Expand Type and select the type of shared module you are creating.
  4. Complete your site’s workflow and publish the shared module.

Using shared modules

To use a shared module:

  1. In the content edit page, open or create the asset to which you want to add a shared module.
  2. Toward the right of the widget, select more_horiz > Overrides. The Overrides widget appears.
  3. Expand Layout Overrides. Drop-down lists AboveAside, and Below appear for the module's position.
  4. From one of the drop-down lists, select Replace.
  5. Click add_circle_outline , and select Shared. A form appears.
  6. In the Module field, click the selection field. The search panel appears.
