Site Builder Role

Thumbnail List

A Thumbnail List allows Site Builders to feature one or more "thumbnail"-sized photos with accompanying title text (which is linked to either internal or external content), with the option to add secondary text as well.

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.

Add Table (widget)

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.

Note about the Add Table widget

There are a few ways to add tables on the Open Berkeley platform, and the the "Add Table" widget is one of them. The "Add Table" widget does not allow any additional formatting (such as bold, italic, or links). 

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.

Social Media Options

If you have social media pages for your department/project, you can include links to these pages that will show up in the footer of your site. To add them, navigate to the Theme Settings link from your Site Builder dashboard (admin/dashboard, under "Other Administration").

Add Links to Social Media Accounts to the Footer of Your Site

Use and Change Layouts

There are a variety of pre-configured available layouts with a variety of regions (hero, header, sidebar, etc.) on your Open Berkeley pages to help feature and organize your content. 

How to See Layout Options and Change Layouts

To see your layout options and to change layouts, select "Change layout" at the bottom of the page.

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.

People Listing Widgets

Overview

By default, all People content will show up at the path "/people" on your site, and will be displayed as a sortable table with Name, Job title, and Role. This is not the only way to feature People content on your site. You can customize the default /people page to change or use a different People widget, or feature People widgets on any page that can be customized. 

Create People Content

Overview of People (Person) Pages

The People feature comes with a "Person" content type. There are several fields available on the Person content type. Once you create your individual Person items, they will populate at the "/people" path, and can also be displayed using several widget types.
