Edit/Create Content

Expand/Collapse Content

Site builders who are comfortable editing HTML directly can add expanding/collapsing (accordion) content sections (the expand/collapse functionality is used on this very page!) to any content page or text widget.

Clone Content

Some Open Berkeley sites have content that is similar in structure across many different pages. The Clone Content feature allows site builders and other privileged users to take an existing page, make a copy of it including all fields, widgets, and layouts, and then update the parts of the page that are different from the source page.

Create Landing Pages

Overview of Landing Pages

"Landing pages" are pages without one primary chunk of content. Use them when you want a page with multiple content items of similar importance. They may be used as home pages, section home pages, galleries, etc. Only Site Builders and Widget Editors can create and edit Landing pages.

How to Clone a Page

Overview

Once cloning has been enabled for a content type (see Clone Content), Site Builders and Widget Editors will see a “Clone this [content type]” button at the top of every page of that type.

Create New Content

Overview

To create new pages on your site, hover over Dashboard --> Content in your Admin menu, or visit your Editor/Site Builder Dashboard (admin/dashboard).

The "Editor" and "Contributor" roles can create new Content Pages, FAQs, and News Items. If optional features are enabled, Editors and Contributors can also create content of those types.

Add Text

The "Add Text" option is a very flexible widget option. You can add as much text as needed, as well as images and files and links, with the full editing toolbar available (see Edit Content from the Editors Guide).

Create News Items

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.

Limited WYSIWYG Toolbar

In regular Content pages and Text widgets, there is a "regular" (full) editing, a.k.a. WYSIWYG, toolbar. However, there are a few features in Open Berkeley that only allow a limited subset of tags.

Add Tables

Tables allow you to display data in rows and columns. They should not be used for page layout. If you need text and images to align a certain way on a page, anyone with the Site Builder role can use Layouts and Widgets to achieve this instead.

Attachment Links

Overview

If you've uploaded an attachment (PDF, Word, etc. - see Add Attachments), you can add a link to that attachment by following the same steps you would take to link to an internal page.
