The same goes for headers, widgets, etc.

1.4: Piping panelists' datapoints into your pages
When editing a page's content, it is possible to dynamically insert a panelist's datapoint that will appear when they visit that page.
In order to do this, you can use the following syntax:
%DP_LABEL% where LABEL is the name of the actual datapoint. The prefix DP is case-sensitive so be sure that it remains capitalized.
1.5: Inserting a REGISTER and UPDATE link
Similar to piping in a panelists' datapoints, if you have a Kinesis registration or update survey, you can plug the links for these into whatever community page you'd like.
The syntax for this is would be %REGISTER_URL% and %UPDATE_URL%.
If you are using a Decipher registration survey, then the Decipher survey URL would need to be inserted instead.
