Unpublish and Restore

To remove content from a live site, pages and files must be moved to the Recycle Bin. Pages that are moved to the Recycle Bin can be restored, if necessary. When a page is recycled the published content is automatically removed. Once a page is deleted from the Recycle Bin or a folder is deleted, it can no longer be retrieved.

If you are removing an entire folder, you should first recycle all content items within the folder then delete the folder itself. If you delete the folder it will delete all items within it and that content will not be able to be restored.

Expire

You can schedule a page to expire at a specific date and time. The available options depend on the file type and your access permissions. Expire options can be reached from the Pages List View by hovering over the item and selecting Expire under the Publish dropdown or from the dropdown arrow next to the green Publish button when you have the page open.

There are different options for expiring content, Replace or Recycle. For each option you have the ability to send a notification to yourself or a group of users. It will be sent with the CMS and you can select the Send Copy to Email checkbox to also send a notification to the user’s Michigan Tech email. You will select the To from the dropdown, enter a Subject, and enter a Message.

Scheduled Publish can be reached from the Schedule Publish tab inside the Publish window, by selecting Schedule from the Publish menu in the Pages List View, or by selecting Schedule from the dropdown menu of the green Publish button in the Page Actions Toolbar.

Section’s Extra Left Sidebar Content

Each section will pave a _props.pcf file. On a section other than the homepage, you can edit the Section Title and Section Breadcrumb. The _props.pcf file for a homepage is where you can update the contact information in the footer for your site and add additional breadcrumbs preceding the ones for this site. Settings you choose in a _props.pcf file will carry through to all files and folders within that folder.

Content can be added below the left sidebar in several ways. If you only want it to be visible on a single page, use the Left Sidebar Content Editable Region on that page. To display content on multiple pages, the content will be added to a _props.pcf file. Remember, any settings made in a _props.pcf file will carry through to all files and folders within that folder. Add it to the file in the root folder to carry through to the whole site.

Additional Breadcrumbs

Each section will pave a _props.pcf file. On a section other than the homepage, you can edit the Section Title and Section Breadcrumb. The _props.pcf file for a homepage is where you can update the contact information in the footer for your site and add additional breadcrumbs preceding the ones for this site. Settings you choose in a _props.pcf file will carry through to all files and folders within that folder.

Additional breadcrumbs can be added preceding those for your site. This is commonly used on some general webpages, like the Faculty/Staff page including a breadcrumb to the Michigan Tech homepage or one of the CSA or COE departments including a breadcrumb back to the college homepage.

Faculty/Staff Profiles

Creating faculty/staff listings involves a few steps. First, you must create a Personnel Information for each person. If you are including an employee who is already listed in another department, you will still create the page, but you will pull in content from the other listing. Once that is created you will be able to add people to the listing pages.
