Just wondering what the pitfalls of this practice is; querying various pages as content areas on a page. A basic example is using an About page to be a rich content blurb in the sidebar/footer. Another example is having two columns on a page or a Coda slider type layout. Are there any SEO ramifications as each content area also exists as its own page.
Is there a way to query "unpublished" pages? So that the content areas work but the content isn't duplicated.
I have posted about this in another section which I think was probably the wrong place for such a question.
