WKND Sample Content

By default, sample content from ui.content.sample will be deployed and installed along with the WKND code base. The WKND reference site is used for demo and training purposes and having a pre-built, fully authored site is useful. However, the behavior of including a full reference site (pages, images, etc...) in source control is unusual and is not recommended for a real-world implementation.

Including ui.content.sample will overwrite any authored content during each build. If you wish to disable this behavior modify the filter.xml file and update the mode=merge attribute to avoid overwriting the paths.

- <filter root="/content/wknd" />
+ <filter root="/content/wknd" mode="merge"/>
