The inline editing features are most useful for quick updates to design or content, especially during the initial phase of building a site. They are also useful on internal sites where site management is decentralized and workflow and deployment are kept simple.
The New Child Page function allows selection of templates, and if “content templating” is enabled, the copying of associated content. This feature is used by all Content Template Catalog page templates.
Dragging a portlet that is enabled for content templating onto a page results in the copying of content into the site area associated with the current page. This feature is used in many of the pre-configured portlets in Content Template Catalog.
A number of the content types in Content Template Catalog were created to allow configuration of IBM
® Web Content Manager components. The Block, List, Slideshow, and Carousel content types are all component configuration templates. The inline editing for these types is hidden until the page is placed into edit mode. In edit mode a “gear” icon displays on rollover, allowing editing of the component configuration.
