Brightspot CMS User Guide

URLs in a multi-site environment


In a multi-site environment, the URLs widget includes a list option to select a site. Brightspot publishes the asset to the site set in this option using the URL you provide.

URLs in Multi Site

As shown in the following example, you can publish an asset to multiple sites with the URLs widget. If you set Global, Brightspot publishes to all sites.

Publishes to Stargazers site only
Publishes to Stargazers site only
Publishes to Stargazers and Asteroid Hunters sites
Publishes to Stargazers and Asteroid Hunters sites
Publishes to all sites
Publishes to all sites

When publishing to multiple sites, you can use the same permalink across multiple sites because each site has a different domain name.

In the left example, a single permalink is set, /extraterrestrials, for both Asteroid Hunters and Stargazers.

The resulting fully qualified URLs are unique because of the sites’ different domain names.

Site Fully qualified URL
Asteroid Hunters http://www.aseroidhunters.com/extraterrestrials
Stargazers http://www.stargazers.com/extraterrestrials

Fully qualified URLs with the same permalinks.

Alternatively, you can set site-specific permalinks on an asset. In the following example, there are different permalinks for the Asteroid Hunters site and the Stargazers site.

Asteroid Hunters & Stargazers Multi site

Site Fully qualified URL
Asteroid Hunters http://www.aseroidhunters.com/extraterrestrials
Stargazers http://www.stargazers.com/outer-space-creatures

Fully qualified URLs with different permalinks.

Note
An asset that can be published to multiple sites is not automatically accessible in Brightspot to editors working in those sites. For example, in the URLs widget, an asset can have a URL for the Stargazers site, but in the Sites widget, the Stargazers site can be denied access to the asset.
