Site Builder 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.

Advanced Site Maintenance

Open Berkeley includes a set of tools that will help you maintain your site's quality after it is finished and launched. These tools are available to users with the Site Builder role.

Class Listings

The Class Listings widget allows Site Builders to embed a filtered list of classes from the Berkeley Academic Guide. The Academic Guide is is a robust tool to help the campus community explore Berkeley’s curricula and find classes, with various filters available.

Portfolio

Portfolio allows site builders to create filterable grid displays of content. You can choose which content items to display, with or without filters.

Layouts and Widgets

Site Builders are allowed to "customize" pages by changing the layout of a page, and adding different types of widgets in the layout regions, in order to organize and feature content. This layout and widget functionality is available on almost every page of an Open Berkeley site.

Google and bConnected Widgets

Site Builders and Widget Editors may use the Google/bConnected widgets to embed the following Google items on their pages: 

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.

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.
