Find resources for learning how to use cross-site publishing to make published content available to users in SharePoint Server 2013.
What is cross-site publishing: Cross-site publishing is a new publishing method that lets you create and maintain content in one or more authoring site collections and publish this content in one or more publishing site collections by using Search Web Parts. Cross-site publishing complements the already existing publishing method, author-in-place, where you use a single site collection to author content and make it available to readers of your site.
Why would I use this scenario: You should use cross-site publishing when you want to store and maintain content in one or more authoring site collections and display this content in one or more publishing site collections. Using cross-site publishing provides the following benefits:
- Separates content authoring from branding and rendering.
- Can be used across site collections, web applications, and also across farms.
- Allows for a mix of authored pages and list content.
