Elements as Modular Units

CommonSpot leverages the efficiency and flexibility of a modular system by separating form from content. Instead of storing Web pages as static chunks of HTML code, CommonSpot maintains content and the Elements that structure content in separate databases, assembling and serving up Web pages on the fly as relevant URLs are requested.

This approach enables a highly efficient and reliable multi-authoring environment, and virtually limitless re-use of content in myriad combinations, to create Web pages tailored to precise requirements. In addition, CommonSpot’s dynamic template linkage makes it easy to maintain a common “look and feel” while rendering content in diverse combinations in a distributed authoring environment.
