Old Components on a New Page

Avatar

Level 1

Hello!

 

I am wanting to add a component my team made for a specific page, I now want to use this component on a new page, but when I go to look at the available components for this new page, the component is not listed. How can I carry this component over to the new page?

 

Thanks!

Hi 

Please follow the steps mentioned below :-

By default, the sidekick doesn’t display the newly created components. You need to enable them explicitly in a CQ author instance.

  1. Create the component.
  2. Using SiteAdmin, open the page that you want to edit in the Author instance.
  3. From the sidekick, click the Design tab.
  4. In the Design of Paragraph tab that appears, click Edit.

    design

  5. Find the component based on the ComponentGroup property you defined and enable it.
    design_par

This is how you can add the components.

Each CQ5 template has a different set of components that can be defined to be available for use. This allows you to control what the authors will be allowed to use, and it makes it easier for them, because they will only see the relevant components, instead of the tons of components CQ5 offers.

When looking at a page, you can switch to something called the "design" mode (as opposed to the "edit" or "preview" modes where you spend most of your time authoring the page). This design mode allows to define the per-template specific settings. It is accessed through the yellow ruler icon on the very bottom of the sidekick.

When in design mode, click on the "Edit" button that is on the blue toolbar called "Design of par", there you'll be able to enable the components you want to be able to use.

When you'll be building components, keep in mind that the design mode and the corresponding design dialogs of the components is a convenient way to define global per-template settings that you don't want to be required to be set specifically on each component instance.

 

I hope this would help you.

Thanks and Regards
