About

When editing content, it is of vital importance that the editor knows exactly what he/she is changing. In other words; what impact do specific content changes have on the actual website content.

A common pitfall is when content items are set as a datasource for components on different pages and the editor changes the value of one of the fields from the page editor. Changing the content on the other pages may be desired, but perhaps not always. We aim to make it more clear to content editors, what exact pages will be affected when changing content (even in the page editor).

Features

- In the content editor, there is a gutter item that can be used to spot content items that are not being used in any page (they can be deleted by clicking on them).
- In the content editor, a message is displayed above the fields to indicate on what pages specific the item is being used.
- In the page editor, a floating pane is displayed when a component is selected. The pane displays the pages on which the content is being used.
- From the desktop start menu, select "Reporting Tools" > "Content Usage Report" to get detailed reports about where content is being used and what content is not being used anywhere. This can be powered by the Sitecore 7 search indexes or the regular (slower) way.

For more information on how to use these features, please read the user manual (available in .docx or .pdf): https://github.com/team-orange/sitecore-content-usage-tools/tree/master/Documentation
