Using the same list CONTENT in many sites

  Date: May 29    Category: MOSS    Views: 561

Pretend you have a list of customers and it is appropriate to show this same
content in many different WSS sites. And-- it is also appropriate to be able to
edit this list in any of these sites -- the result being that all sites 'see'
the new content. I.e.--- one master list for all sites.

Please-- where is this functionality hiding?---
Am using MS' BPOS environment, SP2007.

The content query webpart is only available if you enable Publishing. You
can use it to display content stored in one site in another site fairly
easily. But you will still need to go to the one site where it is stored to
edit the content.

Sorry; I glossed over the editing requirement.

So what about a Page Viewer WebPart? It's essentially an iframe. If the
data doesn't have to interact with the content of the current site, then
this should do the job.
