Managing and Contributing Content

Managing Pages
 

Content Managers and Editors can access page management tools by hovering over a page listing. This reveals icons to move a page to a new position in the site menu using drag and drop; view a page; edit page content; edit page settings, page detail and permissions; and delete pages.

 

Deleted pages are placed in the Recycle Bin where they can be restored at a later time.  

 


NOTE

Pages in the recycle bin may be automatically removed after 30 days, should the system perform an automated cleanup.

 Ask your webteam for assistance.


Edit a page

Content Managers and Content Editor can edit the current page by selecting Edit on the Persona Bar. This places the page in edit mode and displays the Edit Bar across the bottom of the page. 

The Edit Bar permits modules to be added, page settings to be managed, page history to be viewed, content to rolled back to a previous version, and allows the page to be viewed using different devices. Edit mode reveals the module action menus and permits page content and modules to be added directly to the page.

Adding Content

Content Managers and Editors can add content to the current page using one of two methods. Users can click on the Text or Image icons to add one of these common types of content or the Module icon to add any type of content including a content layout. This adds the module to the page and users can begin adding content. This option is also available to page editors.

 

Editing Content

Content Editors, Content Managers and other authorized users can add and edit HTML content by mouse clicking on the content to be edited, making content changes and then clicking off the content to save the changes. These changes are saved but not published or submitted which allows for further changes to be made or the existing changes to be discarded.  Basic text formatting, cut, copy and paste, URL linking, HTML editing, and image insert, upload and formatting can all be done inline or users can switch to the Advanced Editor to access tools which enable insertion of additional elements such as symbols, headers and other types of content.
