Edit/Create Content

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.

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.

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.

Typography Tags

Depending on your needs (e.g., if you would like to display code snippets on your site), you might find the following allowed typography tags to be useful for displaying text:

  • <pre>
  • <code>
  • <samp>
  • <kbd>
  • <var>
  • <mark>

Here is how text added with these typography tags will look on your Open Berkeley site:

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).
