Site Builder Role

Reusable Content

Overview

When adding a new widget or modifying a current widget, you can check "Make this reusable" to easily re-use the widget on other pages. When you update a "Reusable content" widget, the update will be made on every page where the widget is featured.

News Listing Widget ("Recent Stories" or "Full Listing")

Overview

There are two options for displaying a News listing widget (News items): "Recent Stories" or "Full Listing". Select "News" from "Add Existing Content," then click the "Add" button for the view you'd like to feature in a widget.

Responsive Tables

Overview

See Add Tables for initial instructions on how to add tables to your site using the editing (WYSIWYG) toolbar.

Tables built on the Open Berkeley platform are designed to be "responsive," meaning they will adjust for optimal display on all devices, including mobile/tablet.

News Types

Overview

News Types are optional when using News Items. If you choose to create News Types (see instructions on the Categories page), you can either display a single News Type under the "News" menu item, or you can filter by News Types in a widget area on any page (see Types of Widgets).

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 Table (widget)

Overview

The "Add Table" widget is a widget that allows users to put a basic table in a widget area. The table will have a "header" row, and additional "data" rows.

User Roles

Open Berkeley provides four roles that site builders can assign. In order of increasing privileges, they are:

Limited WYSIWYG Toolbar

In regular Content pages and Text widgets, there is a "regular" (full) editing, a.k.a. WYSIWYG, toolbar. However, there are a few features in Open Berkeley that only allow a limited subset of tags.
