The power and flexability of Guides really shows when you want to embed any type of content onto your site.

The default out of the box functionality is to embed an entire guide, but with a simple tweak to the embed code you can easily embed a single article, category, or collection to your site.

Note: You can only use one content ID per embed code. To embed more than one you should copy the code multiple times and change the ID depending on use.
