Known limitations

Copy page and using templates with this macro

This macro uses the macro-id to be rendered. When you copy a page, or use it in a template, the macro-id will remain in both places, which means a change on one macro will be reflected on any macro that has the same macro id.

As such it is a limitation of this macro to work in a template or in a copied page.

Change name of page, images are lost

There is a known issue that when a page gets a change of names, the images go missing. Currently there is no good way for us to solve this, we do however have a suggested workaround. 

Workaround to avoid issue

TO BE IMPROVED

Add your images to the space home. Get the URL for the images, then use this to get the images into the modules of the Content Layout macro.
