Page Parameters

Page parameters control preconfigured aspects of a page—title, metadata, and custom settings such as layout or header content. To view page parameters, the page must be checked out to you. Only users levels 5 through 10 can edit page parameters.

There are two ways to access page parameters:

  • While viewing a checked-out page, click Properties in the page actions toolbar.
  • From Content > Pages, check out the page, click More ActionsMore Actions Menu> EditProperties.

Title and MetadataLink to this section

The following fields are always present in the "Properties" section:

  • Title: The title that displays on your live website.
  • Description: Displayed by search engines if the page comes up as a search result.
  • Tags: Tags in OU Campus filter content, and (depending on your site design) are used to categorize news and search results. Type into the field to enter tags; any preexisting tags appear in the dropdown, but you can also add new tags to the page. Depending on the tag access settings, your choice of tags may be restricted.

Other commonly-used fields include Author (common on news and blog articles) and Keywords (used for limited search engine optimization [SEO] purposes).

  • Page Type and Column Options: Display as a one-, two-, or three-column layout, with additional options for configuring the columns' content.
  • Additional Editable Regions: Enable or disable editable regions for a page.
  • Image Slider Region: Add an image gallery asset to the page.
