Cloning

If you create content that you need displayed on multiple pages, you can use the Demopshere Website clone feature to duplicate content in multiple areas of your site. The two most common types of cloned content are site navigation modules and articles. See below for the steps involved in cloning those content items. 

When an item is cloned on multiple pages, any updates to the cloned content will displayed on all cloned instances. Cloning any content item is not the same as creating an independent copy of the content in another area.
