Site Management Concepts
Bloomreach Experience Manager's delivery framework uses a number of concepts to enable flexible multi-channel delivery of content.
A site binds a delivery configuration to a content root in the repository. Different sites can use the same delivery configuration with different content roots, for example in case of translated sites.
A channel is a site that can be managed through the Experience manager.
A component is a single unit in the hierarchy that makes up a layout. It typically has a single purpose such as retrieving one or more content items, executing a search query, or delegating to child components in the hierarchy.
A menu is a hierarchical navigation structure, binding menu items to URLs defined by route.
