Site Builder Role

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.

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 Tables

Tables allow you to display data in rows and columns.

Other Theme Settings

The additional options available in Theme Settings are as follows. These options are available from the Site Builder Dashboard (the "Dashboard" link in the upper left corner of the screen), under Other Administration ("Theme Settings for Open Berkeley Brand"):

Manage FAQs

Lists of Frequently Asked Questions and their categories can be displayed in three different ways: jump links, questions inline, or collapsible.

Create FAQs

When FAQ items are added to your site, they will automatically populate at http://[yoursite].berkeley.edu/faq-page. FAQ items have to be assigned to a category before publishing. Before you can create FAQ items, you (or someone with the Site Builder role) must evaluate and create applicable FAQ categories. "General" is the default category that comes with all Open Berkeley sites, and more categories can be added as necessary. By default, FAQs will display as "jump" (anchor) links.

Add Video (YouTube or Vimeo)

To embed a YouTube or Vimeo video on your site, use the "Add Video" widget option. This widget also supports YouTube video playlists.

Select "Customize this page" (bottom of the page) on a page where you'd like to add your video, then select "Add Video" from the list of widget options. 

Add an optional title, then click "Browse".

Manage Users

The Open Berkeley platform provides four roles: Contributor, Editor, Widget Editor, and Site Builder. Anyone with the Site Builder role can manage users and assign roles.
