Content fragments in EOS

Before we start we need to emphasize that content fragments and subdocuments are the same thing in EOS.

In the following article we will go through the steps of creating and using a content fragment. The first thing we will do is create a new folder in the workspace and add a template.

Data Source

Your first step when creating a document will be to add a data source.

  1. From the side panel, select the Data section.
  2. Select the Data Sources section.
  3. Use the + button to search for and add the data source(s) you need. If the data source(s) are not currently in EOS, you can select the Upload File option. In our example we will upload an XML file as the datasource.

The Content Library houses all of the content fragments (or subdocuments) found within a given workspace.
