Sometimes, it is useful to show the full display of a node below a piece of content, similar to attaching a view to a page. The advantage of this is that rather than copying and pasting text, you can display the same text in three, four, or five places, while still maintaining it in one.
Examples of this include:
- A page about an endowed visiting professor would include the professor's person node.
- Information about an office might attach it's mission statement.
- An unfiltered HTML node might be attached to a filtered HTML node.
- A webform might be attached to three different places.
At present, a node can only be attached to a Page Content Type and only Application Forms, Audio, Awards, Buildings, Businesses, Committees, Events, Event Series, Files, Pages, Persons, Venues, Videos, or Webforms may be attached.
To attach a node to a page:
- Scroll to the bottom of the page.
- Click on the "Attached View/Node" gray "vertical tab."
- Enter the beginning of the title of the node you wish to attach.
- You may need to use "/allnodes" to find the exact title.
- The title and Node ID of the desired node should appear as long as the node is one of the allowed types.
- Click the node title.
