Insert records page content

Ever have content on one page that you want to reference on another page? But you don’t want to have to maintain both and keep them both in sync? And you don’t want to show the whole content from one page on another. Using insert records you can add one content element from a page or all the content elements from a page. You can also add content elements from several pages.

The content element Insert Records

Just select the content elements you want to display and if necessary, put them in the right order.

In the frontend the referenced content elements will show up the same as the original one (if the styling is not different for that page)

Note

This is the only content element still using a small amount of TypoScript in the rendering process. This is done because you can add different rendering for records from different tables. Take a look at tt_content.shortcut.20.
