Selecting an Auxiliary Site

Auxiliary Sites allow an administrator to setup additional server sources at the account and site level. This allows users to select images, media, or make links in the WYSIWYG Editor or Source Editor to files that reside on servers other than the production server to which the OU Campus pages are publishing. Auxiliary Sites are commonly used as repositories for media, such as images and videos.

Using Auxiliary Sites

When browsing for a link, image, or video, the selection drop-down is available in the upper, right-hand corner of the screen:

Omnibrowser w/ dropdown

Clicking on the drop-down menu shows the list available sites, including the usual staging and production servers, auxiliary sites, and any additional publish targets:

Open drop down menu

A user can choose another server and it will appear in the browser window just like the normal staging and production servers. From this point, the process is just like inserting a link, image, or video normally.
