Edit/Create Content

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.

Responsive Tables

Overview

See Add Tables for initial instructions on how to add tables to your site using the editing (WYSIWYG) toolbar.

Tables built on the Open Berkeley platform are designed to be "responsive," meaning they will adjust for optimal display on all devices, including mobile/tablet.

Add Images/Photos

NOTE: Large (high resolution) images may cause performance issues and could possibly cause other site errors. Try to only upload photos that have a file size of 1MB or smaller, especially when selecting the "original size" option (see below embedding instructions).

You can upload images to the website pages via the "Add Media" button on the editing toolbar:

Add Attachments

Summary

Attachments like PDF, Word, Excel, and Powerpoint documents can be added to Open Berkeley sites as downloadable links. You will upload the attachment first, and then add a link that allows site visitors to click and download. File size is limited to 50 MB because larger file sizes can cause degraded performance.

Optional Styles

Overview

There are several optional HTML "classes" available that will change some of the default heading, paragraph, table, and list styling in Open Berkeley. To use these styles, you will need to make edits directly in the HTML source. See Edit the HTML of a page for more information about editing in the HTML source.

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.

Create News Items

Overview

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.

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.
