Contributor Role

Edit photos and files from the dashboard

From your admin menu and dashboard, you can edit the default alt and title text of image files, change the names of files, replace a file with a new version, and crop an image.

To perform any of these actions, navigate to your "Files" tab by hovering over your admin menu, or clicking on your dashboard in the upper left corner of your site.

Media Tags

If desired, you can add Media Tags to help organize the files in your Library. This is optional; use only if you have a lot of images and need to categorize them for ease of re-use.

Both Editors and Site Builders can create and use Media Tags, but only Site Builders can edit/delete existing Media Tags.

When you upload a photo, you will see an option to add Media Tags to the photo you've just uploaded to the server.

Crop Images

After uploading a photo to your site, you will see an option to crop the photo directly within the media uploading interface.

Crop the photo to the desired size, then hit Save.

Add an anchor link to another location on the same page

To add a link to another location on the same page, you will first need to create a named anchor on that page. Anchors point to a specific place within the page.

Select the appropriate location (e.g., a heading) and click the "Insert/Edit Anchor" button in the toolbar (you will have to expand the toolbar to see the additional buttons).

Add an anchor link to a specific location on a different page

To add a link to a specific location on a different page, follow the same steps for creating a named anchor on the same page.

Anchors point to a specific place within the page. On the page where you want to insert the link, use the Linkit button to find the appropriate page. After using Linkit's autocomplete feature to find the appropriate path to the destination page, you will have to manually add the "#anchorname" to the Link URL.

New paragraphs and line returns

By default, if you hit the Enter/Return key, you will get a full "paragraph return."

If instead you want a "line break" without the full paragraph return, hold down the SHIFT key while hitting Enter/Return.

External News Item

If desired, a News item can be added to your site that links directly to an external source in the title of the News item. When adding this News item, provide a title, as well as some text about the article in the "Body" or "Summary" field (optional - external stories do not need a Body, but they should have a Summary for best display on the Archive page).
