Content makes the Internet click. As content authors we all strive to offer the best to our end users, to keep it interesting and useful. But, let’s face it. Content Management is a challenge.

Some Usecases

Lets put things in perspective. Here are some examples of content reuse where these plugins can be useful.

  • Repeating common content, such as, product features across multiple content on your site, such as, blog posts, product pages, etc. (See Demo)
  • Content like promotion code that keeps changing and you want to make sure the links always use correct and latest codes. (See Demo)

There are also other interesting scenarios for using Variables.

  • Content promotion scenarios, where things like link URLs change, but rest of the content remains the same. Example, promoting content from development or staging to production. (See Demo)
  • Likewise content that needs to be kept ready in production but not made live until the release date. Yes, sort of like a magic button! (See Demo)

As you can imagine, this list can be quite huge in reality because content can be authored in many different ways.


A case in point is this post itself where I will show you the features supported by these plugins. But, instead of repeating the content, we will simply reuse – you guessed it right, the contents from the product pages. These contents have been organized into Variables.
