I have some questions about adding items on Sitecore route.

Here is an example :

I created MyCarrousel item that display images.

My Sitecore tree :

  • Content (directory)
    • MyCarrousel (item)
  • Home (route)
    • About us (route)
    • Contact (route)

I added MyCarrousel item through Experience Editor to my Home route and my About us route.

  1. Is there an easy way to know which item is in which route ? My example is really simple but for a bigger React App there could be many different items in many different routes and a marketing guy must know where is his content
  2. Is it possible to add items on a route whithout going through experience editor ?

1 Answer 1


1) Yes, you can find all usages of a content item in Experience Editor:

EE usage

2) Yes, but I would not generally recommend using the non-EE method as EE solves a lot of complexity that becomes your problem with manual layout assignment. layout details

  • Thanks for your answer. With the "usage" helper I can tell where one item is used. My question was more : how can I know which component I got on a given route ?

  • The component name will show up in the chrome header as you activate it. You can also use the Content Editor's Navigate tab -> Links to see all renderings the current page-level item refers to. It's not super clear or easy to get to but it will show you all the components on the given route.
