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.
The Open Berkeley features listed on this page are optional for users. They may still be in development. If you are interested in being an early adopter for any of these optional features on your Open Berkeley website, email Web Platform Services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can add and move content to the main menu (primary navigation) when creating or editing content. All menu items in the main menu need a "parent" (top-level) item. For the parent items in the main menu, the main menu itself is the "parent." Additional items are considered "child pages" (sub-pages) of the parent items. Child pages will show up in a local (sidebar) menu from the parent item.
By default, the main menu will display as a simple drop-down:
Website "cache" is temporary storage (caching) of web-based content: Web pages, documents, images, etc. Website caching is used in order to improve website speed and performance, as temporarily storing web-based content helps reduce server lag.
Caching on Live Open Berkeley Websites
All live Open Berkeley websites have caching set to 15 minutes in order to help with overall site speed and performance. This means that when you make an update and save, an anonymous visitor (who is not signed in) might not see your changes for up to 15 minutes.
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.
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.
