For this type of requirement scaffolding http://dev.day.com/docs/en/cq/current/wcm/scaffolding.html is right option where you have a page where only one component data changing and page data is same across all pages configure at template level. Now using scaffolding to work with slideshow widget/xtype, you have to extend the existing component.
Thanks for the response.
Scaffolding helps in creating new pages and is helpful to the editors in creating these pages quickly.
When the page is created using scaffolding , if i go to the site admin i can see the new page there.
Though the below mentioned urls
may be three different pages on the site, i would like to have only one page in the site admin console ,for ease of management. If a site has lets say 5000 Slideshows, i would not want to see 5000 individual pages in my site admin console.
Please let me know if this is possible ?
CQ spports page centric content management not content centric, so you can not manage content independently and you have to depend on page as far as authoring is concern. There are other approach like "paragraphreference" but that also requires authoring of content using page.
