Site Builder Role

Edit Site Information

You can edit the name (title) of your site (the text in the banner region of the page, to the right of the Berkeley workmark), or update the email address used for your site if desired.

Open Berkeley sites do not send email; because we use CalNet authentication, there is no need for password-reset messages. The site email address is for our internal records. It is not displayed publicly on your site.

The email address used for your site must be a departmental email, not an individual email address. We may use it to contact your department in cases where our...

FAQ Categories

FAQ content items must be assigned to FAQ categories. Create your FAQ categories before you create FAQ content items. For instructions on how to create FAQ categories, see the Categories page. The FAQs will be separated by category on your FAQ page.

Video Thumbnail with Modal

The Video Thumbnail with Modal allows Site Builders to show a photo in a widget that links to a video, and then when a user selects the widget, a larger zoom (modal) of the video player pops up to show the embedded video. Just like the Add Video widget, only YouTube and Vimeo videos can be used. The photo used for the widget can be a still from the video, or a related image.

Photo Thumbnail with Zoom

The Photo Thumbnail with Zoom allows Site Builders to display a photo in a widget, and when a site visitor selects the photo, a larger "zoom" (modal) version of the photo pops up. The Photo Thumbnail with Zoom features a title to accompany the photo with options to include a photo credit and/or description (the description field uses the limited WYSIWYG editing toolbar).

Twitter Widget

Twitter Widget allows site builders to add Twitter timeline widgets to pages. You need a regular Twitter account to create these widgets, but you do not need a Twitter developer account or API key.

Data Visualization Widget

The Data Visualization (formerly Highcharts) widget allows you to embed accessible, interactive data visualizations created using Everviz (formerly Highcharts Cloud). Dozens of chart types and variations are available, including line, spline, area, column, bar, pie, and scatter charts.
