Trying out Content Fragments in We.Retail
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.
- You can then use these fragments, and their variations, when authoring your content pages.

Content Fragments and Experience Fragments are different features within AEM:
- Content Fragments are editorial content, primarily text and related images. They are pure content, without design and layout.
- Experience Fragments are fully laid out content; a fragment of a web page.
Experience Fragments can contain content in the form of Content Fragments, but not the other way around.
