Elements-global will allow you to define specific elements as being global. Global elements can be added to pages by creating a VirtualElement that will work as a link/placeholder to the global element.

The elements that should be available globaly should implement the IElementsGlobal interface. When creating this elements via a ModelAdmin they will automatically get the flag Global set to true.

You need to specify at least one Element that implements the IElementsGlobal interface.

class HeroElement extends ElementBase implements IElementsGlobal
{
...
}

You can restrict the allowed elements to be referenced by a virtual element on a per pagetype basis on your config.yml via the virtual_elements attribute.
