SharePoint Fest Chicago Web Content Management in SharePoint 2013

  1. 1. Understanding Web Content Management in SharePoint 2013 Patrick Tucker
  2. 2. About Me  15 years in the business  SharePoint since 2005  Live in the proud state of KY  Work for ShareSquared
  3. 3. Our Goal Today  Review the SharePoint Publishing Infrastructure features  Understand how to create and publish content
  4. 4. Getting From Here to There…
  5. 5. Two Approaches Author In Place Cross Site Publishing
  6. 6. The “Old” Way  Author In Place  Requirements:  Publishing Site Template or…  Publishing Infrastructure Site Collection Feature  Publishing Site Feature  A “Pages” library created by the features being activated
  7. 7. Creating Content Create page from layout Add layout metadata as needed Add content on page Check in and publish Approver completes publishing
  8. 8. Enhancements to Content Creation  You can now set Search Engine Optimization settings on each publishing page (except in Foundation)  Image Renditions allow quick and easy format selection  The “Embed” ribbon item & Script Editor Web Part allow for easier insertion of code
  9. 9. Images, Video, Scripts and Stuff  When adding images, videos, etc. to the Rich HTML field, another library is needed  Site Assets is a great location for this kind of content  Make sure that users who can view pages, also have access to the assets library  Use the Draft Item check before publishing
  10. 10. Demo
  11. 11. The “New” Way  Cross Site Publishing  Requirements:  Cross Site Publishing Feature  Enterprise, Enterprise, Enterprise
  12. 12. Creating Content Content is created in an authoring site where cross site publishing is enabled Content is crawled by the Search engine Query results are shown in web parts across publishing site collections So content is created in one site and viewed in others
  13. 13. But I Don’t Sell Products…  Product Catalog Site may not be what it sounds like  Site Columns, Content Types and a “Products” List are just templates really  Managed properties are a key but will likely be automatic
  14. 14. Setting up Cross Site Publishing  So what do we need?  Either a Product Catalog Site or enable the Cross-Site Collection Publishing Feature  “Catalog enabled” lists and/or libraries  A term set with tags to apply to “catalog” items  A crawl of tagged content  A connection from a Publishing Site to the Catalog Site  Configured Content Search web parts
  15. 15. Catalog Lists and Libraries  Can be configured in list or library settings  Up to 5 Item URL fields are defined  A Navigation Hierarchy field is defined to create pinned navigation elements
  16. 16. Making the Connection  When connected to a publishing site collection, a “Result Source” is added  This can be used by the query defined in a “Content Search Web Part”
  17. 17. Category Pages  Special page layouts that are used for displaying structured catalog data  There are only two pages to maintain here, not several  One for all “categories” and one to show a specific category  You can create a page that just applies to a single URL
  18. 18. Friendly URLs  You are still using a page in the “Pages” library, but mapping category and item URLs
  19. 19. Content Search Web Part  The Content Search Web Part is the piece of the two page templates  The query automatically restricts by the navigation terms  Add a Property Filter to map a managed property to a URL token
  20. 20. Demo
  21. 21. Display Templates  This is how we control the look and feel of results defined by the query  Some display templates are built in
  22. 22. A Closing Thought  The “old way” of publishing uses a pages library to contain multiple pages with their own individual content.  The Pages Library can be catalog enabled.  Maybe we could just have one site containing pages which are then published to all other sites to display. This is kind of like the Content Type Hub.
