Categories/Taxonomies

Portfolio

Portfolio allows site builders to create filterable grid displays of content. You can choose which content items to display, with or without filters.

News Types

Overview

News Types are optional when using News Items. If you choose to create News Types (see instructions on the Categories page), you can either display a single News Type under the "News" menu item, or you can filter by News Types in a widget area on any page (see Types of Widgets).

Create FAQs

When FAQ items are added to your site, they will automatically populate at http://[yoursite].berkeley.edu/faq-page. FAQ items have to be assigned to a category before publishing. Before you can create FAQ items, you (or someone with the Site Builder role) must evaluate and create applicable FAQ categories. "General" is the default category that comes with all Open Berkeley sites, and more categories can be added as necessary. By default, FAQs will display as "jump" (anchor) links.

News Listings Widgets

Overview

There are several options for displaying your News content in a widget. Select "News" from "Add Existing Content," then click the "Add" button for the view you'd like to feature in a widget.

Listings Widgets

There are several "listings" widgets available, which allow you to show a listing of content with various display options. The workflow for constructing Listings widgets is to build your content first (i.e., create Content pages, News items, FAQ items, etc.), and then select Listings widgets that will display your content as desired.

Create News Items

Overview

For more information about the News feature, please see "How do I create a News listing?"

When News items are added to your site, they will automatically populate at http://[yoursite].berkeley.edu/news-archive. News items can be assigned to a News type before publishing (optional; News types can only be created/managed by Site Builders). "General" is the default News type that comes with all Open Berkeley sites, and more types can be added as necessary.

Service Catalog

Service Catalog provides a content type and a listings page that you can use to publicize services that your department provides. You can add an icon, link (for online services), and service categories for each service.

Topics (sitewide), a.k.a. Tags

About Topics, also known as Tags

Sitewide Topics are optional, and are available to help organize and feature your content. 

When you create Topics from your Dashboard (admin/dashboard), the same way you add FAQ categories and News types, you will notice that checkboxes for the various Topics are now available when you create content on your site.
