Your existing content, whether it's articles, case studies, or products, is usually topically related. In Kontent.ai, you specify these relations using linked items. You can use this approach to feature related products on an e-commerce site or provide a list of related articles.
How content linking works
Watch this video to get familiar with the concept of linking content together.
Add a place for related items
First, you need to add a linked items element to a content type. This allows your content creators to specify the related items.
Insert all the content you want in your new related article.
Click in the top left to go back to the parent article.
Publish the new version of your article. You can select unpublished related articles to publish them together with their parent article.

Manage your linked content
After adding the articles, you can reorder, remove, or expand the items to view their content. To edit a linked item, click to open the content item for editing.The linked content items are independent and can be accessed outside the content items they're used in. This means you only need to edit a specific linked item once and the changes will be automatically reflected everywhere. You can also publish the linked items along with your original article.
Understand how linking the right content items at the right time is part of the big picture of modular content.
New linked items inherit a collection from their parent itemTo change it, open the linked content item and select a different collection. You can also do that for already published items without creating a new version.
Making changes to published contentOnce your article is published, you cannot make any changes. To add new related articles to a linked items element or update the article itself, you first need to create a new version of the item or unpublish the item.
