You can update imported content. There are two different updates possible:

Update Drupal with new content from GatherContent

There are two ways you can update content in Drupal:

  • Re-import content - go to the Import Content page and repeat the same steps as for importing content. You can choose the update method based on whether you want to: always update content, always create new content or only create new content if you made any changes to existing content in Drupal, so these changes won't get lost.
  • Update content - described below. New data from GatherContent will always override your existing content in Drupal.

If changes to content have been made to imported Items directly in GatherContent, you can quickly update the content in Drupal by following these steps:

Go to the update page

Navigate to the Update page (/admin/content/update).

Select content to update and press "Execute" (Drupal 7)

Choose the content you would like to update. Then select the “Update from GatherContent” option from Operations dropdown. Finally click the "Execute" button.

Select content to update and press "Next" (Drupal 8)

Choose the content you would like to update and press the Next button.

Confirm your selection

Review update results

Once the update had been processed you will be taken to the "Update results" page where you can review what content has been successfully updated and if any has failed to update (including the reasons why). You can also quickly view the updated content.
