Site Builder Role

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.

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.

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.

To edit the HTML of a page, select the "HTML" button from the editing toolbar.

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.

Photo Thumbnails

Photo thumbnails allow Site Builders to add a widget containing a photo with a color band (all Berkeley Brand colors are available) added to the bottom of the photo. These Photo Thumbnails are meant to link to either internal or external content.

Expand/Collapse Content

Site builders who are comfortable editing HTML directly can add expanding/collapsing (accordion) content sections (the expand/collapse functionality is used on this very page!) to any content page or text widget.

Campus Calendar widget

Add Submenu

You can feature menus from your site in a widget area by using the "Add Submenu" option. Select "Override Title" to add your own title if desired (otherwise, the title defaults to the chosen menu, and links to the parent item), then select the "Starting level" (1st level, 2nd level, etc.).
