Publish Cross-Site Content with Catalogs
The core of any Web Content Management (WCM) solution ultimately is content. We find that having the ability to effectively manage and reuse your web site's content is paramount. We can expect to have a large amount of content over time and this will eventually (and inevitably) affect the web site back end in terms of capacity and performance if not planned accordingly. Therefore, planning for reusable content can pay off in the long term. SharePoint 2010 had a built-in feature that allowed content owners to reuse content; one could save snippets of text such as copyright and footer content. When creating or editing pages, the Ribbon provided access to this reusable content, which could then be inserted into the publishing page. This capability still exists in SharePoint 2013; however, this is quite limited and not enough, as it does not cover other content type such as media and images that are prime candidates for reusability.
