Is there an easy way to include one piece of generic content inside another? I have a problem where I have two external sites that get data from my SF database and filter by 'Category' for performance. This works well in almost all cases. However, I just ran into a scenario where the sites truly need to use the same set of about 30 different items.
I have two solutions, one I know will work. The other I was just going to bounce off you guys to see if there was a way to do it.
1. (I know this will work) Create a third category called 'Shared' and pull all site-specific and 'Shared' content for all sites.
2. Create the ability to include one piece of generic content inside another so that i have a content item in 'CategoryA' and a content item in 'CategoryB' that are just pointers to the real content. That way, if they ever need to be separate, I don't have to modify the calling application.
Will option 2 work?
