Site Builder Role

Give to Berkeley widget

The Give to Berkeley widget allows site visitors to make donations to Give to Berkeley fund sources. The Give to Berkeley platform is managed by University Development and Alumni Relations (UDAR).

Clone Content

Some Open Berkeley sites have content that is similar in structure across many different pages. The Clone Content feature allows site builders and other privileged users to take an existing page, make a copy of it including all fields, widgets, and layouts, and then update the parts of the page that are different from the source page.

Top Results (keywords)

The Top Results feature allows users to assign a limited number of pages to be "top results" for specific search terms. You can use single words or phrases as top result "keywords." The top results appear separately, above the regular search results.

Assign User Roles and Edit User Accounts

Your full list of User Accounts can be found on the Site Builder dashboard (select "Dashboard" in the upper left corner), or from the "Dashboard" flyout in the black admin bar. 

How to Manage Users on Your Site

Site Builders may perform the following actions on the User Accounts page:

Manage Content

In addition to creating and editing content, site builders can delete content, and publish or unpublish content. You can do this in bulk from your Content dashboard. Go to the "Dashboard" link in the upper left corner, then select the "Content" tab. See Figure 1, below. These actions can be performed on individual pages as well. See the expand/collapse sections below for additional details. 

Edit Summary on Content Items

On many content types on the Open Berkeley platform, there is an "Edit Summary" option. On Landing pages, the label for this field is "Summary".

The "Edit Summary" option is helpful for showing the "teaser" (summary) text on the following features:

Create Landing Pages

"Landing pages" are pages without one primary chunk of content. Use them when you want a page with multiple content items of similar importance. They may be used as home pages, section home pages, galleries, etc. Only Site Builders and Widget Editors can create and edit Landing pages.

Menus

Site Builders can move, edit, and delete menu items on Open Berkeley sites. Menus on Open Berkeley sites include the following:

Add and Use Headings

Using headings properly can help in creating a semantic, organized structure to your content, and in allowing site visitors to more easily navigate and read through your website content. If your page content has a lot of sections, each with its own subtitle, you should consider using headings instead of simply applying bold or using CAPITAL LETTERS for your section titles.

Responsive Tables

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.
