Create a Content block widget that displays shared content

You can create and add to a page a Content block widget that displays a shared content block.

By default, content blocks are shared content and you can display one block on many pages, using the Content block widget. Sitefinity CMS automatically synchronizes the content in the content block and in the Content block widget. When you modify the content in the widget or in the module, Sitefinity CMS applies the changes everywhere where the content block is used. For more information, see For developers: Create content blocks and Content block widget.
