The cross publishing feature (also called the "add locations" feature) in eZ Publish makes it easy to reuse material on a site, having it appear at multiple locations in the content hierarchy. For example, this feature can be used to place a specific news article at two locations: the front page and the news archive.

This article is the sixth in a series focusing on concepts and features discussed in the newly released book eZ Publish Content Management Basics and is a short editors' user guide to the cross publishing feature.

With cross publishing, you can avoid inconsistent duplicates of content that are hard to maintain. If content appears at multiple locations, you only have to edit the object once - the changes will be reflected at all locations. This is in contrast to copying content to another location, where changes made at one location are not reflected at other locations.

The target audience for this article includes all eZ Publish content editors working with cross publishing through either the Website Interface or the Administration Interface. Readers can review the layout and access requirements for the Administration Interface and Website Interface from the previous articles in this series. For a review of basic eZ Publish concepts, see the first article from this series.

Cross publishing through the Website Interface requires version 1.2 and above of the ezwebin package, which comes with eZ Publish 3.9.2 installations and higher.
