Creating and Applying Components as Dynamic Page Elements

GoLive components enable you to reference a page's elements dynamically in multiple pages. Essentially, a component is a page of elements that can be embedded into other pages. For example, consider how many pages in your site use the same navigation element. Now consider the amount of work involved to make changes to these elements. With the component feature, making a change involves changing only the component page containing the navigational elements; all others are dynamically linked and are updated as soon as the original component page is saved. Needless to say, this is an extremely helpful tool when working on elements that frequently need to be updated.

In this section, we create a component, embed it in a page, and then edit the original. Because this is a dynamic element, all uses of the component will be updated when the original is resaved.
