A-Z glossary of PageSeeder concepts

Transclusion

A transclusion is type of cross reference which is resolved directly so that the referenced content (a document or part of a document) is included into the source document.

In PSML (PageSeeder Markup Language), transclusions are expressed using a <blockxref> of type "transclude":

<blockxref type="transclude" ... />

For more information, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transclusion .

Transclusion vs. embedded links

The essential difference between an embedded link and a transclusion, is when the referenced content is included in the document.

Transcluded content is automatically included in the source document whereas embedded content is only included when the content is published.
