Dynamic applications

Three applications are set up to show content dynamically, based on the current page context.

The Dynamic Body application renders the current content item, which uses the associated presentation template. The Dynamic Post-Body application and Dynamic Sidebar application are set up to use context processors that de-reference a link element from the current content item. The de-referenced content item is then rendered in the application by using its associated presentation template.

In the Content Template templates, the Dynamic Body application is used on all index and details pages. The Dynamic Post-Body and Dynamic Sidebar applications are used only in the Section Detail template to allow each section to display different content on the page. The de-referencing strategy might be used to render other sets of related content items on the same page.
