Publishing

Getting a page to be live on a site is a two step process.

  1. The page needs to be saved
  2. The page needs to be published 

Once the page is saved and published, it will be live on the site. Publishing a page will also automatically create a version of the page in your versions list.

Learn more about Publishing.

Saving

Saving a page by selecting the save option will direct you to the preview screen and save any changes that were made without them being seen on the live site. 

Learn more about Saving.

Versions

Manually save your changes as a version without publishing by selecting the Save Version button.

Learn how to manually save a Version without publishing.

As soon as you edit a page, it is checked out to you. This means that others cannot edit it while it is checked out to you. The page will not be checked in until the changes are published.

Snippets allow users to create custom content layouts. There are several types of snippets in the USU Template including columns and interactive snippets.

Interior sections and folders share the same icon, (see below) but there is a very important difference between them. Interior sections are used to hold and organize pages. Folders are only for non-web files such as images and PDFs.

Assets Overview

Assets are reusable content. Meaning once an asset is created, it can be placed on several pages, and when the asset is updated, all the pages with that asset will update as well. 

This eliminates the need to go update each page individually.

Assets can be content such as the number of students attending USU. Assets will also be used to manage forms and image galleries.
