Site Builder Role

User Roles

Open Berkeley provides four roles that Site Builders can assign.

List of User Roles on the Open Berkeley Platform

In order of increasing privileges, these roles are:

Contributor: The most limited role, as Contributors can only edit content that they own. Assign it to users who need to be able to edit just a few pages, such as their faculty profile page or a small section of the site. Editor: A more advanced role than Contributor, and has all of the permissions as the Contributor, plus a few more. Assign it to users who need to be able to edit multiple...

News Listings Widgets

Overview

There are several options for displaying your News content in a widget. Select "News" from "Add Existing Content," then click the "Add" button for the view you'd like to feature in a widget.

Notes These options are separate from the default "News Archive" page. See...

Optional Styles

There are several optional HTML "classes" available that will change some of the default heading, paragraph, table, and list styling in Open Berkeley. You will need to make edits directly in the HTML source to use these classes. See...

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.

Start with Content Pages as you build out your site, then add FAQs, News Items, and Landing Pages and additional widgets (Site Builders and Widget Editors only) as additional content. For a breakdown of available...

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.

Edit photos and files from the dashboard

From your admin menu and dashboard, you can edit the default alt and title text of image files, change the names of files, replace a file with a new version, and crop an image.

To perform any of these actions, navigate to your "Files" tab by hovering over your admin menu, or clicking on your dashboard in the upper left corner of your site.

You may also feature videos on your site by using the Video Thumbnail with Modal...

Edit the Home Page

Overview of Your Website's Home Page

Your home page is populated and organized by layouts and widgets. It has the same general behavior as a Landing Page. There are a few important items to consider when editing your home page.

There is an "Edit" tab available, but using this tab is NOT how you'll edit the majority of content on your home page. Here are the settings that are available when you click the "Edit"...

Add Images/Photos

Overview

Images can be added to all pages on an Open Berkeley website, either directly in a content item (such as a Content page, News item, or FAQ item), or added to a customized page (such as a Landing page, or...
