Create News Items

Overview

For more information about the News feature, please see "How do I create a News listing?"

When News items are added to your site, they will automatically populate at http://[yoursite].berkeley.edu/news-archive. News items can be assigned to a News type before publishing (optional; News types can only be created/managed by Site Builders). "General" is the default News type that comes with all Open Berkeley sites, and more types can be added as necessary.

Paste Content

How to Paste Content from Other Sources

You can paste existing content from other documents or sources, but pasting from other sources (e.g., Microsoft Word, other websites) may bring unwanted "HTML markup" that could cause formatting issues. It may be preferable to paste your content as "plain text" (e.g., using Notepad or TextEdit), and then add the necessary formatting (e.g., bold or italics, headings, bullet points) using the editing toolbar.

Content Types

Overview

There are four content types available by default on an Open Berkeley site. If you are using any optional features on your site, then you will see additional content types available. 

FAQ Categories

Overview

Categories for FAQs are required. Before you start creating FAQ items, create FAQ categories first (see instructions on the Categories page), so that you can assign the FAQ items to their corresponding FAQ categories.

Featured Image

Overview of the Featured Image option

A few Open Berkeley features require the addition of a "featured image" on the original content item. The image can be uploaded or selected from the image library during the process of creating/editing a content item. 

A featured image should be added to content items when using the following features:

Types of Widgets

Overview

There are many types of widgets available to feature content on your site! See the full menu on the left for details and instructions on how to use each one.

How to Add Links

Overview

Links can be internal (pages on your website), external (other websites), anchor links (also known as jump links), and attachment links (PDF, Word, etc.).

Links can be added to both text, as well as images. 

Edit Content

Overview

To edit a page, navigate to that web page when you are logged in, and you will see an “Edit” Tab.

Reusable Content

Overview

When adding a new widget or modifying a current widget, you can check "Make this reusable" to easily re-use the widget on other pages. When you update a "Reusable content" widget, the update will be made on every page where the widget is featured.
