A component contains content external to a page’s item. Components typically contain modules for advertisements, reader comments, promotional previews to other web pages, or anything else not part of the item itself. This section provides an overview of components and how you can incorporate them into your Brightspot project.

You can create a module at any level of the Content Hierarchy. All assets you create inherit a module from the nearest available level in the content hierarchy. For example, if you create an ad module at the section level, all items inside that section inherit the same ad module.
