Using Content From Another Site

There may be times when you want to use content from a site you don't maintain. Examples include directions to a college location, or a frequently asked question that is as relevant to your site's users as it is to the other site's users.

The Obvious Way May Not Be the Best Way

It can be tempting to just copy and paste the content you want to use. There is a major drawback with that approach: once you copy the content into your site, you must maintain it.  That includes having to monitor the other site for updates to the content you copied and then updating your version as needed. 

The Recommended Way: Link to the Content

Whenever possible, just link to the content in the other site. If you believe that approach will not meet your needs, contact OCGR to discuss other options.
