You can choose to add just the Give button linked to a page of your choice, just the recruitment buttons with preset links, or all four. The default is no buttons. This is only available in the _props.pcf file within the root folder for your site or the folder where navigation is restarted.
You can link to a specific place within your page using anchors. You can also link to individual sliders or FAQs. This is useful when you have a long page and want to provide shortcuts to certain sections or when you want to direct the user to a specific piece of information within a page.
Academic departments have the option to automatically pull in research project information to their CMS website. The information comes from a database of projects that are approved for public knowledge by the Research Office. The standard information that is pulled in is:
- Principal Investigator
The PI and Co-PI fields will automatically link names to their faculty page if one is set up in the CMS.
Departments can be given the ability to override this information (as viewed on your departmental website only) or manually add projects that are not listed. If you have never used this function before, you must contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get set up. Departments currently set up are Mechanical Engineering-Engineering Mechanics, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Computer Science.
It is important to use properly structured HTML headings when organizing your web content. Think of webpage headings as a table of contents for a story.
Headings are not required on webpages. However, they help break up and organize lengthy informational webpages—improving readability. Proper heading use is not only important for accessibility, it also has search engine optimization benefits, which can help your webpages rank higher in Google’s search results.
There are three button colors that can be used in the CMS. They can easily be created when you set up your link or you can use the List Spread Buttons snippet to create multiple buttons in a row.
Data tables present tabular information in a grid. They are made up of columns and rows that communicate the meaning of the information and relationships between data. There are several options for styling your data in tables to allow for a clean, visually appealing look.
The use of HTML tables is reserved for displaying data in an organized manner. It is not proper to use table code to control webpage layout or design. To display content on your webpage in multiple columns, please refer to the Boxed Sections Snippets or the List Spread Buttons Snippet.
Interactive images, where the user can move around in the image to view the scene from every angle, 360 photos are becoming more widespread and easier to create. You can embed them on your OU Campus CMS website in the upper page image or within the body content.
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. Files that have been in the Recycle Bin for two years or more will be deleted twice yearly, in November and May.
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. Before removing any page you should first check its dependencies.
