Add global module or group to template
- Mastheads - A masthead or site header usually consists of your logo, brand slogan, company contact information, menu, and other info such as social "follow me" icons. They are typically used across the majority of your pages, with the exception of Landing Pages (where you may have a variation without the menu). Creating a masthead as a group of modules and making it global helps you unify the top of all your pages.
- Footers - A footer usually contains helpful navigation links, share icons, copyright info, and/or privacy information for your site. Creating a footer as a group of modules and making it global helps you unify the top of all your pages.
- Sidebars -Some sidebar content such as a call to action section might benefit from being placed in a global module so that you can swap out the offer easily across all pages.
- Embeddable widgets - if you create HTML modules with embed code for videos, Twitter feeds, Google maps, music players, or other embeddable objects, you may want to use them across multiple pages.
Once you have made a module or group global, you can add it to other templates.
To add a global module or a global group to a template, click Add row and drag the module to the desired area of the template layout.
Next click the gear icon on that module and choose Swap Module. Locate the global module or group in the list of modules . You can use the search bar or filter to only see global modules and groups.
Manage global content
Global modules and global groups can also be added to coded templates. This global content needs to be created as part of a template layout, but then can be included in a coded file.
In addition to editing global content in Design Manager, you can use the Global Content app to manage your global content. To access the Global Content app, navigate to Content Settings > Global Content.
This will take you directly into the Global Modules that live in your Design Manager. From here, you can click New to begin creating new modules and groups to use globally.
