Here is a quick guide to some important features on each page. This is a tutorial for the old templates. To view new template tutorial, go here.
The masthead image is brought in through the style sheets, and each has a unique body class. Each department generally has its own masthead. The image can be changed in "Properties" under "Parameters," "Parameters" can only be seen if you have the page checked out. The image can be changed under "Header Image Options" by changing the "Body Class." Here is a list of the mastheads used by the college, the text above each image is the body class.
The header image text will be your department's name. The header image text can be changed in "Properties," "Parameters" under "Header Image Options" by changing the "Header Image Text" field.
The header text also has a link embedded in it. This link should go up one level from the page it's on. This is also editable in "Parameters" under "Header Image Options."
The breadcrumb is generally the same as the page title. For index pages with a double breadcrumb, the breadcrumb is removed. The breadcrumb can be edited in "Properties," "Parameters" under the "Custom Settings" section.
The sidenav is the local navigation for users to reach all pages on your site. It can be edited from the _sidenav.inc file.
The page title tells users what the page content is. It must be an H1 level heading. Ideally, the page title should be no more than 40 characters long. You can check your page title character count with this tool. Page title H1's can be changed in "Properties," "Parameters" under "Custom Settings."
The contact information can be edited right on the page if "Yes" is selected for "Enable Editable Region." If it's not, then it's editable in the sites _contact-info.html file. The contact information could be pulled in from another part of the site, this can be checked in the "Access Settings" of your site. The heading of the contact section can be changed in "Properties," "Parameters" under "Contact Information Section." The contact information can be turned off in "Properties," "Parameters" under "Contact Information Section."
If you want to add an additional links section on your site, please contact Web Services.
Every page on the site must have a contact footer so users know who to contact for more information about that particular page, or who to report problems to. Every department has its own footer. The footer can be added or changed in "Edit" and then "Contact Footer."
