Editing

Editing a page can be done by doing the following:

    • In the Site Structure, navigate to the section/page you wish to edit, and click on it
    • Select the "Content" tab
    • Select the content type you wish to edit
    • Click on the "Save Changes" button at the bottom of the page after you have finished editing
  • To Save and Approve updates, you must be a Moderator,
      • Click the down down arrow next to the blue Save button...and click Save and Approve.
        Updates will publish within a half hour but they are immediately visible on the 'preview' link.
  • DO NOT click the "Publish" or "Publish Section" button at the top. Once you click "Save and Approve", your updates will publish to the live site within 30 minutes.

Styling

For the Fordham website, we have a CSS Stylesheet in place that defines how each tag will be displayed. Do not use the <font> tag or another styling because it overrides the CSS Stylesheet. This will create issues with ADA compliance.

Formatting

A list of all available formats is available under Format > Formats, and this includes Headings and Buttons.

For Headings, the first heading you should use on a page is Heading 2 <h2> for accessibility best practices. Heading 1 <h1> should never be used because it is meant for the title of your page. Headings should go in chronological order in either direction but you should never skip a tag.

  • Heading 2 should denote a section
  • Heading 3 should denote a subsection, and so on.
  • You should never start your page with a heading level past Heading 2.
    • <h2> <h3> <h4>
    • <h2> <h2> <h3> <h4>
    • <h2> <h2> <h3> <h3> <h4> <h3>

To create a button, go to Format > Formats and select one of the following buttons depending on the desired style:

  • btn-primary
  • btn-secondary
  • btn-left-add-icon-primary
  • btn-left-add-icon-secondary
  • btn-right-arrow-icon-primary
  • btn-right-arrow-icon-secondary

After you have added a button, you can type in your button text, and you can hyperlink the button.
