I'm fairly new to Craft. I have a question about how to manage and setup the editing of shared content in Craft which is used on multiple pages.

As an example I have a Mailing List signup element which will be used across multiple pages. In my templates I'm using an include:

{% include "includes/_mailing-signup" %} 

I come from Perch where you could make a Region of content shared which would take it out of the page and into a 'Shared' area in the admin.

What's the best way to approach this in Craft where content can be edited in one central location to update on all page?


I think you should look into "Globals" for content you want to edit, and re-use throughout your entire site.


  • Super, thanks. I just figured it out (see below). I love how helpful the Craft community is.

I've figured it out.

To anyone who has a similar question. They are called Globals.

Set them up from the settings area with fields then you can reference them from your template like below.

{{ mailingList.textArea }}

mailingList is the handle of my Global Set and textArea is the field.
