Editor Role

People Feature

The People feature allows you to create content for individual people, which can be featured/listed in a few different ways. This feature is a good way to create and showcase a directory of people on your site.

Create People Content

Overview of People (Person) Pages

The People feature comes with a "Person" content type. There are several fields available on the Person content type. Once you create your individual Person items, they will populate at the "/people" path, and can also be displayed using several widget types.

Add Lists

When you have content that makes semantic sense as a list, use the list buttons instead of simply using line breaks. Proper use of lists is an accessibility best practice. To create a list, place your cursor in the WYSIWYG field and select the WYSIWYG button for a bullet (unordered) or numbered (ordered) list.

Add and Use Headings

Overview of 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.

Add a link to a website (external)

Overview of External Links

You can add a link to a specific external URL by selecting the text you wish to hyperlink, then clicking the "Link to content" button. (You can also remove a link via the "Unlink" button).

After clicking the "Link to Content" button, add the URL in the "Link URL" field for an external link.

Add a link to another page (internal) on the same website

Overview of Internal Links

To add a link to another page on the same website, select the text or image you would like to hyperlink, then use the "Link to Content" button.

Use the auto-complete field to find the page you want to link to (e.g., start typing "About Us" to find the "About Us" page). Select the appropriate page, then click "Insert link" to insert the internal link to the appropriate page.

The WYSIWYG (Editing) Toolbar

Overview

When you create a Content Page, News item, or FAQ item, and if you are a Site Builder creating certain widgets, you will notice an editing toolbar within the "Body" section:

Revisions

Overview of Revisions

On Open Berkeley sites, revisions are enabled by default on live sites, which means that each site keeps track of each change that is made by each user. This means that you will have a record of the previous content in addition to your edits. Each update to a page is tracked as a separate revision.

Revisions allow all Editors and Site Builders to keep track of the changes made to their Open Berkeley site, and can be especially helpful if multiple people are making changes to the same site.
