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.
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.
Your book will be made up primarily of Book Pages. Other content types such as Content Pages, News, etc. cannot be added to books. You may add the occasional Landing Page as the top-level page or as a chapter-heading page.
Please note, top-level book pages cannot be unpublished without disrupting the structure of the book and potentially other books. Other book pages with child pages must also remain published, or you may disrupt the structure of their book.
When uploading a new attachment, you will no longer need to select the "public" file destination. You will skip the screen where you used to make this choice, and the public destination will be selected automatically.
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.
Most likely, you will find that the majority of your content will be created as "Content pages." Start with Content Pages as you build out your site, then add FAQs, News Items, and Landing Pages and additional widgets (Site Builders only) as additional content. For a breakdown of available content types in Open Berkeley, see Content Types.
