Scopes

Scopes are like entrances to specific parts of your website. They give access to different languages or provide an alternate path to a page or sets of pages.

When routing pages, Frontender consults the Scopes and serves a page from the specified domain and in the requested locale.

You configure scopes in the Project Settings, accessible from the Project Dashboard. Each scope has a Locale (language), a Domain, a published page and an optional Path Prefix.

All of this is controlled by scopes:

Multi-site

Scopes allow for a single, or a group of pages to be served on a different domain, which is excellent for creating campaign websites.

Multi-lingual

Scopes power the multi-lingual functionality of a Frontender project. By configuring a scope for each language, your users can access your content in their preferred locale.

Consistency

When published, Scopes appear as stand-alone websites. Internally it’s a part of the project. And that means it has access to all Components available to the project.
