Reusing existing content or creating relationships between content items sounds great and efficient, right? But let’s take it from the ground up. Imagine you need to embed content like a tweet or a Youtube video. You want to use it in one place only, not reuse it. Sure, no problem! That’s what components are for.Discover the single-use structured content before we dive deeper.
Create single-use content
The easiest way to add structure to your content is to use your first superpower: components. Components are really flexible. You can embed them into any rich text element if components are allowed there.Single-use content is sometimes also referred to as one-off, channel-specific, or non-reusable. You’ll find components useful for embedding images, tweets, videos, quotes, code samples, and much more.In essence, components are just like any other content item with a set of elements and content groups. The only difference is that they are for single-use embedded content, so they don’t appear in your content inventory. This also means that you can’t reuse them in other content items.
From single-use to re-useIf you later find another use for the content in your component, you can always convert it to a content item by clicking .This conversion cannot be undone. If done by accident, archive the new item and create your component again.
