Edit/Create Content

Add Tables

Tables allow you to display data in rows and columns.

Add and Use Headings

Using headings properly can help in creating a semantic, organized structure to your content, and in allowing site visitors to more easily navigate and read through your website content. If your page content has a lot of sections, each with its own subtitle, you should consider using headings instead of simply applying bold or using CAPITAL LETTERS for your section titles.

Responsive Tables

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.

Create Content Pages

Most likely, you will find that the majority of your content will be created as "Content pages." A Content page is a standard webpage, with one primary chunk of content, and is likely in the main menu of your site.

Edit Summary on Content Items

On many content types on the Open Berkeley platform, there is an "Edit Summary" option. This option isn't available on Landing pages, and the field is a plain text field (no editing toolbar). 

The "Edit Summary" option is helpful for showing the "teaser" (summary) text on the following features:

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.

Optional Styles

There are several optional HTML "classes" available that will change some of the default heading, paragraph, table, and list styling in Open Berkeley. You will need to make edits directly in the HTML source to use these classes.

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.

Edit the HTML of a page

If desired, Site Builders can edit the content of page directly in the HTML. If you are comfortable using basic HTML, feel free to use this option. Important note: Some HTML tags and attributes are filtered out, so not everything that you might type into the HTML editor will appear on the page.

To edit the HTML of a page, select the "HTML" button from the editing toolbar.

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.
