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.

Add Links to Text

Give your links unique and descriptive names, which is important for accessibility purposes. See "Give your links unique and descriptive names" from the "...

Edit Content

Overview

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

Important note: If a page contains widgets (i.e., if the page has been customized), only Site Builders and Widget Editors can customize pages and edit widgets (contact your Site Builder if you have questions about widgets used on your site, and see Manage Users for more information on roles). The editing process for pages that have been customized is different. See...

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.

Working with Reusable Widgets

When creating/editing a widget, check the box under the title field that says "Make this reusable." Once this box is checked, an additional field called "Admin Title" will appear, and you will have to fill out the "Admin Title" field so you can easily distinguish different reusable...

Add Attachments

Summary

Attachments like PDF, Word, Excel, and Powerpoint documents can be added to Open Berkeley sites as downloadable links. You will upload the attachment first, and then add a link that allows site visitors to click and download. File size is limited to 50 MB because larger file sizes can cause degraded performance.

Just like when you upload images (see Add Images), you can upload attachments via the "Add Media" button in the editing toolbar (see more detailed instructions below...

Add Map

NOTE: If you would like to embed a map featuring multiple locations (using Google's "My Maps"), see Google and bConnected Widgets. Otherwise, for a map of just one location, see details below.

To embed a map of a single location in a widget, choose the "Add Map" option. Add the street address of the location you would like to feature, and a Google map will be generated.

Add a Spotlight (slideshow)

Overview

Spotlights are photo slideshows that contain images overlaid with optional titles and descriptions. You can link them to pages on your site, or to external webpages.

Spotlight images are fully-responsive; the spotlight will rescale itself to fit the space available to it depending on your page layout and the viewer's device size. For best results, you may want to crop and resize your images to one of the available layout styles/ratios (see below) before you upload them.

When you choose one of the available spotlight options (see below) and drag them into different...

Create New Content

Overview

To create new pages on your site, hover over Dashboard --> Content in your Admin menu, or visit your Editor/Site Builder Dashboard (admin/dashboard).

The "Editor" and "Contributor" roles can create new Content Pages, FAQs, and News Items. If optional features are enabled, Editors and Contributors can also create content of those types.

Add Image

NOTE: Large (high resolution) images may cause performance issues and could possibly cause other site errors. Try to only upload photos that have a file size of 1MB or smaller when using this widget.

Use "Add Image" to feature a photo with a caption in a widget area. Note that you can also feature an image in a widget by using the "Add Text" widget option and the "Add Media" button (see...

Add Content Item

The "Add Content Item" allows you to display an existing content item on your site in a widget area. Start typing the title of the content item in the "Piece of Content" box, and select the item from the list provided. Under "Content Settings," select how you would like the content item to be displayed ("Full Content," "Teaser," etc.).

NOTE: Currently, when adding a new Content Item widget, the Preview window will default to an existing content item. You can choose another item following the instructions above.
