Custom Element Types

There are two types of Custom Elements: Local and Global.

See the comparison of Global and Local Custom Elements in the Administrator's Reference.

CommonSpot indexes Local Custom Elements as part of publishing the page on which they are created and edited. You need to explicitly enable indexing for individual Global Custom Elements. This is done by the Site Administrator. Refer to the Viewing Page and Search Properties section of the Administrator's Reference for more information about indexing Global Custom Elements. The changes to a Global Element instance are not versioned like standard page Element or Local Custom Elements.
