Pages Overview

Editing a page in OU Campus can be as simple as logging into a page directly and updating text.  In this case, the default WYSYWIG Editor provides a familiar toolbar and interface for basic page editing. After saving a page, or in preview mode, a user will also see the various available page actions and have the option to publish and/or to send for approval depending upon the access permissions configured for the site.

This Pages section of the Support site provides several help topics relating to creating new pages, uploading, using Zip Import, descriptions of all available page actions, information relating to performing a page check prior to publishing, previewing and comparing pages, editing page properties, using Quick Search, and performing various file operations.See the In This Section navigation for links to those pages.

About the Toolbar

Accessing a Page

Pages are accessed in one of two ways: the DirectEdit link or navigating through the folder structure within the interface itself. In both cases, users must have been granted editing access to the page in order to access it. When using the folder structure to navigate, users must have access to the directories/folders leading to the page to be edited in order to traverse through the structure.

Editing a Page with the DirectEdit method.

1. Click the DirectEdit link on the published page.

2. Login.

3. Select an editable region.

4. Edit the page.

5. Save and publish the page (or send to an approver).

Logging in with DirectEdit

Content contributors might also navigate to a directory listing of pages and subdirectories after logging in. In this view of the system, available page actions and file operations are shown, again depending upon the permissions settings. Icons representing the available page actions are displayed horizontally for each page. The page actions include a comprehensive set of functions that can be performed on any page.

This expanded view is default when clicking Content > Pages. It provides a quick visual reference for information about a page. It shows the status of the page, whether an RSS feed is assigned to it, as well as provides a way to perform several actions on a page or pages. The availability of these actions depends upon user level. A page can be checked out by clicking the light bulb icon. A lit light bulb indicates that the user viewing the page already has the page checked out. A red lock indicates that another user has the page checked out. The chat bubbles icon indicate that the page is pending review. The thumbs up icon indicates that the page has been assigned to the current user for approval.
