Content Fragments allow you to create channel-neutral content, together with (possibly channel-specific) variations. We.Retail (as available in an out-of-the-box instance of AEM) provides the fragment Arctic Surfing in Lofoten as a basic sample. This illustrates that:
- Adobe Experience Manager (AEM) content fragments are created and managed as page-independent assets. They allow you to create channel-neutral content, together with (possibly channel-specific) variations.
