Pages and Files
In OU Campus, each website page exists as a Publish Control File (PCF). Go to Content > Pages to see your page files.
OU Campus uses a file management system, so your pages are organized in folders. Images, PDFs, and other files are also stored in Pages folders.
Use the home icon and breadcrumb navigation to move through the folder levels.
Click the "Staging" dropdown to toggle to the production server. When viewing your files in staging, click on the name of a page or file to open and edit it. When viewing files in production, click on a file name to view it on your published website.
Page StatusLink to this section
Files that are checked out to you have a yellow lightbulb icon. Check out a page to prevent others from entering conflicting changes while you are working. Click the lightbulb icon to check a file in or out.
Files that are checked out to another user have a lock icon. If a file is locked to someone else, you can't edit it. The exception is for administrators, who can forcibly check the file back in. If you check in a file someone else is working on, their unsaved changes will be lost.
Files that are scheduled to publish have a calendar icon.
Files that are scheduled to expire have a "No" icon.
Files that are pending approval as part of a workflow have a silhouette icon.
Files that have never been published have an "Unpublished" status.
Files that have been saved after the most recent publish date have an "Unpublished Changes" status.
Files that cannot be published have a "Publishing Disabled" status. Contact an administrator to override or enable publishing.
FilterLink to this section
Type in the "Filter" field to search the content visible on the page. Filtering searches file content (but not source code), metadata, and file names.
Click the tag icon and choose a tag from the dropdown to search the visible files for that tag. Use more than one tag at a time to limit the results to all files labeled with every tag selected. Apply individual tags, not collections.
You can search the visible content using both tags and filters.
