5 Introduction to the Content Management System In January 2003, LSA Development, Marketing and Communications (DMC) launched the new College of LSA website. Besides the complete graphical redesign, new audiencebased architecture and revision of content, this was also the first site in the College to utilize the Vignette Content Management System (CMS) Version 6. Implementing a CMS for web content offers numerous benefits to people publishing and maintaining web pages, as well as to the students, faculty, staff, alumni and others who visit these websites: departments & units using the CMS have the ability to add or edit web content without needing any HTML, resulting in websites that are more current and useful. Since the launch of the College s site, DMC has worked with many LSA units to redesign their existing websites and move them into the CMS. Departments and units with sites in the CMS no longer need to rely on limited staff with HTML knowledge to make small changes to websites they benefit from the conveniences of a CMS. In 2006 LSA decided to upgrade the Vignette Content Management System to V7. Key Terms CMS The Content Management System, or CMS, is a highly complex software package and series of databases that stores, organizes, and delivers web content. AppConsole Content, formatting, and page layout can be entered into the CMS through the Application Console (AppConsole). This is sometimes referred to as the Back End. ICE Content can also be manipulated through a more visual interface through which you can edit content right from within your webpage. This is called In Context Editing or Preview. V6 was a very aggressive and new technology: LSA was among the first colleges in the country to invest in a CMS of Vignette s size. Since its deployment, College staff has evaluated content management in the College and, along with realizing the many benefits, have suggested improvements and new features. The LSA upgrade of the CMS takes these suggestions into account: Vignette V7 offers a number of substantial improvements over its predecessor. New CMS users will experience the same HTML less editing capabilities, an events calendar integrated with the LSA homepage for increased visibility, smooth faculty & staff directory creation and upkeep, and all the other benefits of content management under V6. Former V6 users will see a number of new features. The key benefits include: News: News content is now treated similar to events content. Press releases, highlights, and other newsworthy items can be submitted to a date based news system that knows when to publish new news, when to remove it from certain pages, and more. Additionally, news items will be automatically copied and sent to LSA DMC for potential inclusion on the LSA homepage, use in LSAmagazine, or distribution to the popular press. This way, you can publish your news and alert College media relations personnel of important happenings with one click. In Context Editing and Improved Interface: Previously, CMS users had to login to the application that allowed them to manipulate content. While effective, this system was sometimes clunky. With in context editing, department personnel may edit content directly from the website. Small icons that represent basic editing functions appear next to all the content items on the page but appear only to those with proper permissions and allow content editors to simply click a button from a page and edit most content without having to use the editing application. When more robust edits are required, the content management application has been upgraded as well. More features are available, and the interface loads much faster. Security, Permissions, and Workflow: V7 offers departments a very granular and flexible approach to security and content approval. Individuals can be assigned permission to individual parts of the site and at different levels. Versioning: You are now easily able to create versions of most content instances in the system as well as easily restore content to a previous version, all with a few clicks. This document is designed to help staff in LSA units manage their content more effectively and to act as a quick reference resource for questions. 5

6 Principles of Content Management Websites using the CMS are comprised of various content types, mixed together to create the look you want. Each content type offers specific display formats, which give you additional control over the way your web pages are put together. The CMS allows LSA users to update content in a central system, stored separately from the layout and graphics of their pages. When a web user attempts to load a page, the system pulls the pieces of content and creates the webpage dynamically. Because of this, graphics and layout can applied more consistently, and content updated once will change on all the pages it is referenced. In the example below, About Intro text is used on both pages. If the staff in charge of updating changes that item in the CMS, the system will automatically display the updated version on both pages. This is only the beginning of what the system is capable of doing. For an additional example, look at the Sweetland Writing Center below: We can see a mix of articles, images, and documents. These are displayed using various display formats. As we move forward, we ll look at how to add content to the CMS using each of the ten content types, and then look at how to structure the layout of your pages. 6

7 Two Ways to Add or Edit Content ICE vs. AppConsole Vignette V7 provides more than one way to add and edit web content. In Context Editing (ICE) allows users to do the vast majority of tasks with greater speed and more ease, though it does not provide all of the features of the Application Console. While the Application Console (AppConsole) has a number of features and allows users to take full advantage of optional add ons like workflow and task lists, it also requires more clicks to do common tasks and is not as intuitive. Generally speaking, anyone adding or editing normal web content (e.g., documents, articles, images, etc) will use the ICE interface. Because it more closely resembles the actual website, most people find it easier to use. Those with higher level administrative access or those with specialized multimedia or other components on their site may find a need to use the AppConsole. Getting Access and Logging On In-Context Editing (ICE/Preview) Only authorized users can edit content on ICE for any site. Before using the ICE, you will need to get access through LSA Development, Marketing and Communications. We contact each department we work with to get the names of those who will be handling content and we assign permissions in the system. Users are granted authorization for the department/unit site they will work in there will be no access to content owned by other departments. Once your authorization is added, you can login at this URL: https://editweb.lsa.umich.edu/sitename Once you are logged on, you will see a near exact replica of your site with a number of editing icons, each described in the appropriate section in this document. You will use these icons to edit your content within the context of your actual site. Getting Access Do you need access to the CMS for yourself or for a colleague? Send an to du to obtain the permission to logon to AppConsole. 7

8 AppConsole (Back End) Only authorized users can access the AppConsole of the CMS. Before Using the AppConsole, you will need to get access through LSA Development, Marketing and Communications. We contact each department we work with to get the names of those who will be handling content and we assign permissions in the system. Users are granted authorization for the department/unit site they will work in there will be no access to content owned by other departments in the AppConsole. Once your authorization is added, you can log into the AppConsole at this URL: https://editweb.lsa.umich.edu/appconsole This URL will bring you to the AppConsole login screen show above. Enter your UNIQNAME and LSA PASSWORD, and click OK. Once logged in, you ll see Menu bar on the Home Page screen (shown below): Menus in the AppConsole Sites Clicking on this menu will produce a list of all sites for which you have access. Select a site from the list to see the hierarchy of channels and regions in that site and the content within each channel. You will primarily use the Sites tab to preview your content from the AppConsole/backend. Content Clicking on the content menu will allow you to see all content to which you have access 8

9 Content Types Content on a CMS website needs to be added into the LSA CMS database through Content Types. There are ten major content types from which to choose. The content you wish to display on your website will fall into one of these ten categories. Choose the content type that best fits your need. Each content type is explained in the following table: Article Document News HTML Block Image Link Event People Slide Show *Region Config The most popular content type. Enter text to be read from (on) your website. Contains Title, body, author and more fields. Upload files (Word documents, PDF, Excel files, etc.) to make available on your site. Enter news items to use on your website. The LSA News Coordinator will be alerted to new News content in the system for possible use on the LSA site and other potential uses. Enter HTML code (or copy in from programs like Dreamweaver). Upload image files (.jpg,.gif, etc.) to use on your website Enter the URL of a site you wish to link to from your website Enter events to post on your website, as well as the College of LSA main site. Enter people profiles to use on your website (e.g., faculty directories). Create image slideshows to use on your website. Region Config refers to a particular area in your website. It can be considered as a container that holds any number of content items. Presentation template and area formats are used to provide a specific look. The region config needs to be associated to a channel; The term channel refers to a place on your website which can hold a region config. For users of the old CMS, these channels would have been called sections. Think of channels and Region Configs as placeholders on your site. Each of these content types will be explored in the following sections. Using display formats, the CMS can format your content in any number of ways. For example, an article can be displayed with or without an associated image, can be displayed on multiple pages of the site in different ways all from the same article, et cetera. You will see examples of how various content types can be formatted in each section. Content can be added either via In Context Editing (ICE) or the AppConsole. While LSA recommends using ICE for speed and efficiency, this document explains how to do so using both methods in the following sections on content types. Once content is in the CMS, you will likely find that you need to edit it from time to time. This can also be done via either ICE or AppConsole. A section later in the document covers finding and editing content once it s in the CMS. 9

10 Adding New Content IMPORTANT NOTE!!!!!!!! When creating content, you may be faced with the necessity to paste large amounts of text into the content editing forms we ll review below. Whenever possible, paste the text without any formatting. This can be accomplished a couple of ways. 1) Pasting your text into a simple text editor (NOT MICROSOFT WORD) like NotePad, then copying and pasting again. 2) When available chose Edit Paste Special Plain Text as below Articles An article is any large body of text you wish to place in your CMS website. You may add this content using In Context Editing (ICE) or using the Application Console (AppConsole). Adding a New Article Using ICE 1. To add a new article using ICE, you will login to the edit mode of your site: https://editweb.lsa.umich.edu/sitename. You will notice next to most of the content a pencil icon accompanied by a red X icon. These options allow you to edit that particular content item in the region of the page. To add a new article to an area, you will use the Region Config editing option which is highlighted below. 10

11 2. After clicking on the Region Config editing pencil, you will notice the Region Config properties screen opens (it appears the same as if you were to open it from the AppConsole). 11

12 3. You will now be able to add new content or find existing content to add. For this illustration, we will be creating a new article. Under the create menu drop down options, choose the type of content you want to create. You should select Article Umich as shown below. 4. A new window will popup, Click on UMICH to access the list of websites to which you have access. When the following screen appears, you can click on the site you want to add content to. 5. Once you have clicked on your site, click on Home. From here, you will recognize that each of the entries on the screen correspond to a part of your site. Select the appropriate subproject which has the same name as channels of your site in which you want to add your content, Reminder: Channels The term channel refers to a chunk of your website. For users of the old CMS, these would have been called sections. Think of channels as place holders on your site. 12

13 For example, in the screens below, we have clicked on Home, then About Us, and are finally clicked on Staff. 6. The article edit screen will open, and you can create the content of your article WARNING!!!!!!!! You must use caution when copying content and pasting it in the Body field of the Article Edit Screen. By selecting the Paste Special function The Article Edit Screen: pasting in plain text you avoid bringing in unwanted formatting (ex. Tables) that could cause headaches later. 7. Remember to fill out all the bold fields; they are required. 8. When done entering your content, click OK. 13

14 9. You will now be able to associate that content and place it in the order you want in the Region Config. You should now find the content using the Find button in Region Config, then search for it. The easiest way to find content you add is to type your uniqname in the Keywords field and select the content type you are trying to add. In this case, Article Umich. 10. From the results of your search or browse, select the content you want to add to the Region Config by clicking the radio button next to the content item. You can then select a format for the content or just press OK. 14

15 11. You will now see your article in the Region Config and in ICE. Remember that once content is created it must be put in the region configurator and approved/published. 15

16 Adding a New Article Using the AppConsole 1. If you have not done so already, login to the AppConsole. Go to the URL: https://editweb.lsa.umich.edu/appconsole Enter your UNIQNAME and LSA PASSWORD. Once logged in, you will see the CMS Homepage (below). 16

17 2. To create a new content item, you will first need to traverse down the Content tab (shown in menu bar of the above image) to select the target project location in which you want to place the content. On placing your mouse on the Content tab you will see the below image. 3. Click on UMICH to access the list of websites to which you have access, when the following screen appears, you can click on the site you want to add content to. Reminder: Channels The term channel refers to a chunk of your website. For users of the old CMS, these would have been called sections. Think of channels as place holders on your site Once you have clicked on your site, click on Home. From here, you will recognize that each of the entries on the screen correspond to a part of your site. Select the

18 appropriate subproject which has the same name as channels of your site in which you want to add your content, For example, in the screens below, we have clicked on Home, then About Us, and are finally clicked on Staff. 5. Once you have navigated to the target project or sub project in which you want to place your content, you can use the green + icon in the upper left corner of the screen shown in below image to add the content there, 18

19 6. Click the plus sign, and then select Content Item to add a new content item. The button is shown in the graphic below. 7. On clicking on the above shown Content Item tab, the below screen appears Each entry on this screen represents the opportunity to create that type of content (e.g., to upload a Word document, you would select document). These will be covered later in this document. To create your article, select Article and click OK. 8. Now you will be presented with the Article Edit Screen, which is described in the next section. 19

20 The Article Edit Screen WARNING!!!!!!!! You must use caution when copying content and pasting it in the Body field of the Article Edit Screen. By selecting the Paste Special function pasting in plain text you avoid bringing in unwanted formatting (ex. Tables) that could cause headaches later. Fill out the appropriate forms on the article edit screen. As you can see, the content is divorced from the graphics on your site. Each of the form fields can be displayed in different ways within the graphics of your site using display formats. Detail about display formats and presentation templates will be provided later. Remember to fill in the bold fields; they are required. 9. When you are done, click OK to finish saving the article into the CMS. Article Field Descriptions Title (Required) Name of your article (e.g., About Us ) Teaser (Optional) Brief, eye catcher to motivate viewer to read more Body (Required) Bulk of text goes here. See the following section for more information on how to use the toolbar to edit your text. Detail Image 20

21 (Optional) Image can be inserted in the article Once uploaded, images can be displayed alone, or they can be added to display within an article. Image 2 (Optional) A second image can be uploaded here. Thumbnail image (Optional) Thumbnail images can also be uploaded Author (Optional) Provide your name. CMA Keyword (Optional) Enter search words to help you later find an article within the system Modified By (Optional) Write your name here, when you create a new article or edit an already existing one. Modified Date (Optional) Write creation or modification date Don t See the Toolbar? When you are at the article edit screen, the body field should be occupied by a MS Wordlike toolbar. If you only see a blank box or receive a note about installing the toolbar, you need to install the toolbar. To do so, contact LSAIT at lsa or call and request that the ewebeditpro package be installed on your computer. The Editing Toolbar The Body area of the article includes a toolbar used for editing text. The toolbar will load in the body field each time you open an article. This toolbar allows further editing to your body text without requiring HTML. Use the icons to enhance or alter your text, or add special displays. The icons on the toolbar are very similar to icons you would see in a Microsoft program and may be familiar to you. Users will find that the toolbar can do most things they are accustomed to from using programs like Microsoft Word. Here are some popular requirements and uses followed by a complete description of its capabilities: Cut, Copy, and Paste: Use these icons to cut, copy, or paste text out of, or into, the body field. Depending on the program you copy from, occasionally, pasted text here may retain some formatting or not appear correctly in the body field or contain tables. This means that some HTML formatting was retained from the original copy. If this is happens, you can just go to the insert dropdown and select the Paste Special option. In the pop up window, select Plain Text, then click OK. This will strip the text of all formatting. This often resolves the problem. Heavily formatted HTML text may need to be reentered from scratch or have the old HTML removed. Hyperlink and Remove Link: These two icons are used for adding and removing hyperlinks in your article. You can now add links to websites to addresses from within your article. To add a URL or Mailto link, click the Hyperlink icon. A window will come up where you will specify the type of link (http for regular website; https for secure sites; mailto for addresses) and the destination address. Once you click OK, the hyperlink text is activated. To remove a link, click the Remove Link icon. 21

22 View as WYSIWYG and View Source: Using the toolbar means you don t need to use HTML to create your web content. However, the HTML is there if you want to view or edit it. The default article body is WYSIWYG, or What You See Is What You Get. It is writing the HTML for you, behind the scenes. The HTML code can be viewed by clicking View Source. This will bring up the HTML source code for viewing and editing. Remember, if you don t know or feel comfortable using HTML, you do not have to. However, it is there and does bring some additional functionality, which is reviewed later in this tutorial. FUNCTION CUT COPY PASTE FIND UNDO REDO SPELL CHECKER SPELL CHECK AS YOU TYPE BOOKMARK HYPERLINK DESCRIPTION Cut content Copy content from most Windows applications and retain formatting. Paste content from most Windows applications and retain formatting. Find allows you to search the page for a certain word or phrase.

(4) A new screen will appear to help you select where you would like to put this new piece of content. (Note: If you use the alternate method with the + sign described in the callout box at left, you may not need to do this step.) First, click UMICH. After you select UMICH, a screen will appear listing all the sites to which you have access. If you have access to only one site, only one site should appear. Next, select the appropriate site. (5) Once you have selected your site, click on Home. From here, you will recognize that each of the entries on the screen correspond to a part of your site. Select the appropriate channel of your site in which to put your content, and then click OK. For example, in the screens below, we have selected Home, then About Us, and are finally checking off Staff. Then, we click OK. Reminder: Channels The term channel refers to a chunk of your website. For users of the old CMS, these would have been called sections. Think of channels as containers within which you can put any number of articles, links, images, and other content. 30

31 31 (6) Once you have navigated through the channels to the channel or sub channel in which you want to place your content and once you have clicked OK, you will be presented with the Document Properties Screen, shown below.

Otherwise, click Upload to upload a new file (Note: Uploading new files will usually be the mode of operation, rather than browsing existing files). Once you click upload, you ll see the screen below. Use this tool like you would many other Windows tools, clicking Browse to find the file you wish to upload (as shown below). 32

33 Next, select your target project using the button. The following screen will appear. Once you have selected the parent project for this content, and clicked OK, you will return to the Submit Static File screen. Click OK. You will then be returned to the Document Properties Screen. (8) Fill out the rest of the fields on the Document screen as necessary Once you have filled out the remaining fields, click OK. Your document is now submitted. Remember that once content is created it must be put in the region configurator and approved/published. Document Field Descriptions Title (Required) The title of your document or a title that will explain the file File Name (Required) Click Browse to locate the file on your computer or shared drive. Description (Optional) Describe for the user what the file is Author (Optional) If appropriate, name the author of the file CMS Keywords 33

34 (Optional) Enter keywords that will help you find this content in the ICE or AppConsole at a later date HTML Block To work with HTML block content items on your site, please schedule supplemental training and we will also provide an additional training manual. Please send an to to request access and an additional training session. Images Images can be added to the CMS and then displayed on your website in a variety of ways, including embedded in articles, with links, or on their own. Before you can use images in Articles, you must upload them through the Image content type, described in this section of this manual. The most popular types of images are JPG or GIF files, and you should consider using only these formats. Other image formats, such as TIF, BMP, or PNG are supported in some web browsers but not others. So while you can upload any image file into the CMS, other people s computer may not be configured to see these less common formats. JPG and GIF are thus the recommended formats. Before uploading an image, you may want to resize, crop, or adjust the image in a graphics program like PhotoShop, PaintShop Pro, or Fireworks. If you are not familiar with these programs, your IT representative can likely install one for you, and there are many classes available through HR or tutorials available online via Google search. Adding a New Image Using ICE (1) To add a new image using ICE, you will login to the edit mode of your site: https://editcms.lsa.umich.edu/sitename. You will notice next to most of the content, a pencil icon accompanied by a red X icon. These options allow you to edit that particular content item in the region of the page. To add a new article to an area, you will use the Region Config editing option which is highlighted below. A Helpful Hint: JPG vs. GIF JPG and GIF images behave differently. Both take pixel information from within an image file and compress it, however each format compresses it differently. As a result, some files are better saved as JPG files and others are better saved as GIF files. Here are the criteria: JPG: Very complex images with many, many colors or any image with complicated patterns are best saved as JPG files. GIF: Simple images, big blocks of color, small images with pixilated text, and any images with transparent backgrounds should be saved as GIF files. 34

35 (2) After clicking on the Region Config editing pencil, you will notice the Region Config properties screen opens (it appears the same as if you were to open it from the AppConsole). (3) You will now be able to add new content or find existing content to add. For this illustration, we will be creating a new article. Under the create menu drop down options, choose the type of content you want to create. You should select Images Umich as shown below. 35

36 (4) A new window will popup for you to place the content you are creating. Click on UMICH to access the list of websites to which you have access, when the following screen appears, you can click on the site you want to add content to.

Once you click on Create Content Item, the following screen will appear. Alternative: Add Content In addition to adding new content by clicking create content item, you may also use the Sites menu to select your site. Once you are in the hierarchy of your unit s website, you will notice a + icon in the upper left corner of the screen. Click the plus sign, and then select Content Item to add a new content item. This can be a helpful alternative when you are working within your site in the AppConsole and wish to add new content without returning to the homepage. The button is shown in the graphic below. 38

39 (3) Click on UMICH to access the list of websites to which you have access. The following screen will appear. Each entry on this screen represents the opportunity to create that type of content. To add a new image to the system, you would select Image and click OK. (4) A new screen will appear to help you select where you would like to put this new piece of content. (Note: If you use the alternate method with the + sign described in the callout box at left, you may not need to do this step.) First, click UMICH. After you select UMICH, a screen will appear listing all the sites to which you have access. If you have access to only one site, only one site should appear. Next, select the appropriate site. 39

40 (5) Once you have selected your site, click on Home. From here, you will recognize that each of the entries on the screen correspond to a part of your site. Select the appropriate channel of your site in which to put your content, and then click OK. For example, in the screens below, we have selected Home, then About Us, and are finally checking off Staff. Then, we click OK. Reminder: Channels The term channel refers to a chunk of your website. For users of the old CMS, these would have been called sections. Think of channels as containers within which you can put any number of articles, links, images, and other content. (6) Once you have navigated through the channels to the channel or sub channel in which you want to place your content and once you have clicked OK, you will be presented with the Image Properties Screen, shown below. 40

41 (7) If you or someone else has previously uploaded this image, you may browse for the file in the system. Otherwise, click Upload to upload a new image (Note: Uploading new files will usually be the mode of operation rather than browsing for existing files). Once you click upload, you ll see the screen below. Use this tool like you would many other Windows tools, clicking Browse to find the file you wish to upload (as shown below). Next, select your target project using the button. The following screen will appear. Once your image file has been found and the path to it appears in the window, click Upload to complete the process. 41 (8) Fill out the rest of the fields as appropriate, then click OK to finish uploading your image.

42 Image Field Descriptions Title (Required) give your image a title File Name (Required) enter the file name or click browse to locate the desired image file on your computer or shared drive. Caption (Optional) enter a caption for the image. Note: the text you enter here will also become the image s alt text on your website. Alt text is the text that appears when you hover over an image on a website. An image does not require alt text. Detailed URL (Optional) If you want your image to be a hyperlink, enter a URL destination into this field (e.g., your logo can be a hyperlink to your homepage). Default Height and Default Width (Optional) While these fields are optional, entering the dimensions of your image is recommended. If you do not already know the dimensions of your image, you can find them either by opening the image in an image software program (e.g., Adobe Photoshop) and looking at image size, or, by right mouse clicking on the image on your computer and looking under Properties. Enter the height and width in pixels. Credits (Optional) give credit to the image s artist or photographer. CMA Keywords (Optional) enter search words to help you later find the Image within the AppConsole or ICE (words can be separated by spaces, commas, or semicolons). Remember that once content is created it must be put in the region configurator and approved/published. 42

43 Key Difference: V6 vs. V7 V6 users who dealt with slide shows had very little control over the actual operation of the slideshow because each slideshow was built custom and required complicated code to manipulate the images. Swapping out images required knowing what filenames were associated with what images and other tedious tasks. With V7, the CMS has evolved quite a bit in this regard. You can now order the images and swap them out much more easily. Slide Show Slide shows display a series of pre selected images. Like its namesake, which was so common in the past, these display photographs or other images in a pre set order and can be used to tell a story or present a thematic grouping of visuals. The slideshow can be configured to show your audiences images and captions or just images with no captions depending on your needs. Buttons can be provided on the website to allow them to step through the slides as well. While the Vignette CMS supports BMP, JPG, TIF, PNG, and GIF files, LSA recommends you use only JPG or GIF files because of their broad reaching compatibility compared to other image formats. Your slide show images should all have the same dimensions, so you will want to crop or resize your images to the appropriate height and width ahead of time using a graphics program. You have the option of uploading new images at the point of creating the slide show OR can select from images already uploaded to the CMS. If you choose the latter option, please review the Content Types: Images section of this document for help on uploading Images. Adding a New Slide Show Using ICE (1) To add a new image using ICE, you will login to the edit mode of your site: https://editweb.lsa.umich.edu/sitename. You will notice next to most of the content, a pencil icon accompanied by a red X icon. These options allow you to edit that particular content item in the region of the page. To add a new article to an area, you will use the Region Config editing option which is highlighted below. 43

44 (2) After clicking on the Region Config editing pencil, you will notice the Region Config properties screen opens (it appears the same as if you were to open it from the AppConsole). (3) You will now be able to add new content or find existing content to add. For this illustration, we will be creating a new article. Under the create menu drop down options, choose the type of content you want to create. You should select Slide Show Umich as shown below. 44

45 (4) A new window will popup for you to place the content you are creating. Click on UMICH to access the list of websites to which you have access, when the following screen appears, you can click on the site you want to add content to. Reminder: Channels The term channel refers to a chunk of your website. For users of the old CMS, these would have been called sections. Think of channels as place holders on your site. (5) Once you have clicked on your site, click on Home. From here, you will recognize that each of the entries on the screen correspond to a part of your site. Select the appropriate subproject which has the same name as channels of your site in which you want to add your content, For example, in the screens below, we have clicked on Home, then About Us, and are finally clicked on Staff. 45

46 (6) Once you have navigated through the channels to the channel or sub channel in which you want to place your content and once you have clicked OK, you will be presented with the Image Properties Screen, shown below. When done entering your content, click OK. Remember that once content is created it must be put in the region configurator and approved/published. Adding a New Slide Show Using the AppConsole (1) If you have not done so already, login to the AppConsole. Go to the URL: https://editweb.lsa.umich.edu/appconsole Enter your UNIQNAME and LSA PASSWORD. 46

47 Once logged in, you will see the CMS Homepage (below). Alternative: Add Content In addition to adding new content by clicking create content item, you may also use the Sites menu to select your site. Once you are in the hierarchy of your unit s website, you will notice a + icon in the upper left corner of the screen. Click the plus sign, and then select Content Item to add a new content item. This can be a helpful alternative when you are working within your site in the AppConsole and wish to add new content without returning to the homepage. The button is shown in the graphic below. (2) To create a new content item, you will first need to click Create Content Item (shown in previous image) in order to open the content type definition screen. Once you click on Create Content Item, the following screen will appear. 47

48 (3) Click on UMICH to access the list of websites to which you have access. The following screen will appear. To add a new slide show to the system, you would select Slide Show and click OK. (4) A new screen will appear to help you select where you would like to put this new piece of content. (Note: If you use the alternate method with the + sign described in the callout box at left, you may not need to do this step.) First, click UMICH. After you select UMICH, a screen will appear listing all the sites to which you have access. If you have access to only one site, only one site should appear. Next, select the appropriate site. 48

49 Reminder: Channels The term channel refers to a chunk of your website. For users of the old CMS, these would have been called sections. Think of channels as containers within which you can put any number of articles, links, images, and other content. (5) Once you have selected your site, click on Home. From here, you will recognize that each of the entries on the screen correspond to a part of your site. Select the appropriate channel of your site in which to put your content, and then click OK. For example, in the screens below, we have selected Home, then About Us, and are finally checking off Staff. Then, we click OK. (6) Once you have navigated through the channels to the channel or sub channel in which you want to place your content and once you have clicked OK, you will be presented with the Slide Show Properties Screen, shown below. 49

50 (7) The most important part of the slideshow screen is the Add button in the lower portion. You will use this button to add your images to the show. When you click Add, the following screen will appear. In this form, you have the option of uploading a new image or browsing for an old one. Fill out the fields on this page to your satisfaction and hit OK. See below for more information on each field Once you hit OK, you ll be returned back to the main screen. Repeat this step for as many images as you d like to include in the slide show until you have added them all. (8) Once you have added all your images, fill out the rest of the fields on the Slide Show screen as necessary (9) Once you have filled out the remaining fields, click OK. Your slide show is now submitted. Slide Show Field Descriptions For Step 7 Alternate Title (Required) The alt title shows up when people mouse over your image and is critical to text only browsers and to browsers for people with disabilities. It can also be used as a short caption. Image (Required) Browse the system or Upload a new image from scratch using the buttons provided. 50

51 URL (Optional) Do you want the slideshow to be clickable and link to another page? If so, put the web address here. Link to a Channel (Optional) Same as above, except link to an existing channel in your site Link to Content (Optional) Same as above except link to an existing, specific, single piece of content in your site For Step 8 Title (Required) Name of your slideshow Description (Optional) Provide slideshow detail Channel (Optional) Channel on which slideshow is placed Author ID (Optional) Provide your name. Modified By (Optional) Write your name here, when you create a new slideshow or edit an already existing one. Modified Date (Optional) Write creation or modification date Remember that once content is created it must be put in the region configurator and approved/published. 51

52 Link The Link content type in the CMS is used to enter and display hyperlinks to other pages on the web. For example, you may want to link to the LSA Course Guide or to Undergraduate Requirements hosted on the LSA page or on another UM page: You can use the Link content type to do just that. Adding a New Link Using ICE (1) To add a new image using ICE, you will login to the edit mode of your site: https://editweb.lsa.umich.edu/sitename. You will notice next to most of the content, a pencil icon accompanied by a red X icon. These options allow you to edit that particular content item in the region of the page. To add a new article to an area, you will use the Region Config editing option which is highlighted below. (2) After clicking on the Region Config editing pencil, you will notice the Region Config properties screen opens (it appears the same as if you were to open it from the AppConsole). 52

53 53

54 (3) You will now be able to add new content or find existing content to add. For this illustration, we will be creating a new article. Under the create menu drop down options, choose the type of content you want to create. You should select Link Umich as shown below. (4) A new window will popup for you to place the content you are creating. Click on UMICH to access the list of websites to which you have access, when the following screen appears, you can click on the site you want to add content to. 54

55 Reminder: Channels The term channel refers to a chunk of your website. For users of the old CMS, these would have been called sections. Think of channels as place holders on your site.
