Syndicated content / Live E-edition woes in TCMS

1. What problem(s) does this idea solve?


We want to give SEO authority to a certain Bloxs website. However, we want the story to appear in print editions. Currently, PageTracker is auto-site tagging stories to the newspaper website. 


Does not have a process that retains TNCMS canonical URLs when passing through TCMS.

Does not have a process that allows/denies certain TCMS sections from PageTracker’s site tagging.

Does not have a process that allows PageTracker-site-tagged stories to be limited to the e-edition application.

Does not have a process that allows different rules for different site tags. (Do not publish on one site, Publish on another site)

This limits our ability to share print edition content across papers without creating duplicate stories or multiple canonical URLS.  


2. Why do you need this idea implemented? Provide as many problems or use cases as possible.


Montana sites would like to syndicate content across multiple TNCMS and TCMS sites.  

An editor can share stories across multiple websites and print editions from a TCMS asset. 


We are expanding our website portfolio. This includes building out niche sites outside of our newspaper brands. The goal is driving advertising and audience through topic-specific sites. 

MontanaUntamed is a hub and spoke distribution model. All the outdoors content created for the Montana newspapers are sent to this one domain, then the content (and canonical URL) is distributed across Montana, Lee and TN Content Exchange papers. 

Q: Since it is part of the billingsgazette.com Edition, wouldn't you want it to come from billingsgazette.local so the article would be linked up to the e-edition?

A: Preferably, yes. If we can't have both, we want to drive incremental revenue and audience through highly-monetized web pages over PDF pages with 1-ad behind a paywall.
