Site Builder Role

Color Bands (Full-Width)

Full-width color bands allow site builders to add a band of color with text to the top of your home page or Landing pages. The styles and layouts match the design of the Berkeley homepage.

Video Thumbnail with Modal

The Video Thumbnail with Modal allows Site Builders to show a photo in a widget that links to a video, and then when a user clicks on the widget, a larger zoom (modal) of the video player pops up to show the embedded video. Just like the Add Video widget, only YouTube and Vimeo videos can be used. The photo used for the widget can be a still from the video, or a related image.

Book Feature

The Book feature helps you create organized documentation, regulations, manuals, or other content that has a sequential or hierarchical structure.

Re-Order and Manage Menu Items

Site builders have the ability to re-order menu items, as well as edit existing menu items and add new menu items.

On the Site Builder Dashboard, in the "Administer Menus" section, you can click on "Manage links" for a specific menu (e.g., "Main Menu").

Organize and Customize Book Pages

Site builders can use these advanced features to customize their books and book pages.

Add, edit, and move Book Pages

Your book will be made up primarily of Book Pages. Other content types such as Content Pages, News, etc. cannot be added to books. You may add the occasional Landing Page as the top-level page or as a chapter-heading page.

Please note, top-level book pages cannot be unpublished without disrupting the structure of the book and potentially other books. Other book pages with child pages must also remain published, or you may disrupt the structure of their book.

Attachment Links

Overview

If you've uploaded an attachment (PDF, Word, etc. - see Add Attachments), you can add a link to that attachment by following the same steps you would take to link to an internal page.

Site Builder Admin Menu and Dashboard

Admin Menu

When you are logged in, you will see a black admin bar at the upper left side of the page. From this menu, you can easily perform such actions as view content, add content, view and add files, access your Dashboard, log out, etc.

Site Builder Dashboard

The "Dashboard" page contains all of the actions that your role is allowed to perform.

URL Aliases (Friendly Path Names)

URL aliases (e.g., “about-us” instead of “node/9”) are automatically assigned by default, and are what appear in the URL of your individual pages (e.g., http://YOURSITE.berkeley.edu/about-us). If desired, they can be manually assigned when creating or editing a node, and site builders also have the option of administering aliases via the site builder dashboard.

Edit photos and files from the dashboard

From your admin menu and dashboard, you can edit the default alt and title text of image files, change the names of files, replace a file with a new version, and crop an image.

To perform any of these actions, navigate to your "Files" tab by hovering over your admin menu, or clicking on your dashboard in the upper left corner of your site.
