Is there a way in Drupal to maintain a separate database of content for a specific purpose & then (variably) include parts of that in several places?
Here is our specific requirement.
In the footer region of the Theme we are using, we want the 4th column to have "What's New" with ONLY the 3 most recent items showing (probably just a headline). See rkassoc.org/amc, fourth column of footer. There is just a placeholder there now.
There will be another page on the site called "What's New" that will have a list of maybe the last 10 (number unknown yet). Each item will be a headline, some text & maybe an image (or several). That page can be manually maintained if necessary.
Of course it is easy to build the "What's New" page. What I don't see is how to pull off the top 3 & put in the footer.
