Using WYSIWYG Snippets
Snippets are files that have been designed as reusable content. This can include table structures, forms, paragraphs of commonly used text, lists of names, an image with a caption, etc. The data changes from page-to-page, but the defined structure is reused. Anything that can be created as a template or structure or even bits of text can be created as a snippet. Snippets are grouped into categories for easy management, and are inserted into the page using the WYSIWYG Editor.
Once the snippet is inserted on a page, the on-page content can be edited without affecting the original snippet. Likewise, editing the original snippet file or snippet does not affect any previously inserted comment. Deleting a snippet file does not delete the snippet from a page that it has been entered into. The difference between a snippet and an asset is that an asset can be edited once and changes are applied to all subscribed pages. This is not the case with snippets. When placing a snippet into the page, the content of the snippet is copied into the WYSIWYG Editor. Once this is done, there is no connection to the original snippet. The user can then edit the content of the snippet within the WYSIWYG Editor.
If snippets have been set up for the site, the Snippet icon will be available.
