Using Detail Elements 

Each Ministry-Focused Content module has a Detail Element. Each Detail Element is a unique listing that displays the details of the selected record. You can link Layout, List, Featured, Calendar, and Slider Elements to a Page using the corresponding Detail Element, to dynamically show the current record.

Example: An I'm New Page includes an Event List Element linked to the "Event Detail" Page including the Event Detail Element. When I click on a listed event on the I'm New page, I am directed to the dynamically generated Event Detail page for that event.
