1 UH CMS Basics Cascade CMS Basics Class UH CMS Basics Updated: June,2011! Page 1

2 Introduction I. What is a CMS?! A CMS or Content Management System is a web based piece of software used to create web content, simply and easily without the need to know complicated programming languages like HTML and CSS. This allows non-technical authors to update websites. Content Management Systems also allow technical administrators to better manage web sites. II. Author side vs User side! There are two modes for using the Cascade CMS. There is the Author side which allows for web content to be edited and the User Side which is a presentation mode that does not allow for the web content to be edited. Requirements UH CMS offers full support for all major browsers, including Internet Explorer on Windows and Netscape/Mozilla/Firefox on Windows, Mac, Linux, and Solaris. Safari on Mac is supported for all features except the WYSIWYG editor. Getting Started During the UH CMS basics training course we will be using a Sandbox environment for training. This is an area that can be used for creating content and learning how to use the software. The publishing features are not enabled in this area but it will give you a very true look and feel to what working in the live production CMS will be like. During Training: Go to mars.matrix.uh.edu:8080 The port (:8080) is important Use trainer01, trainer02, etc for the username and the password: CMStraining! to log into the training enviroment After Training Go to Use your cougarnet credentials to login The Business owner for your college must request access permissions for their users to the IT Web Technologies group before users are given access to the site. IT s Web Technologies group will send the business administrator a Site Intake form to fill out At UH CMS Basics Updated: June,2011! Page 2

3 that point Web Technologies will also go cover the available templates for a site and any further customizations needed. Once approved Web Technologies sets up the top level folder for your site in the CMS CMS Home Screen Cascade Menu- Main menu has options for Search, Publishing tools and User preferences Home Home returns the contributor to their Dashboard view. From this view, the contributor can view their Starting Page, any associated Content Wizards, any Active Workflows, a current list of Messages, a list of locked assets, and their recent history. New New opens a contextual menu that allows users to administer and edit files, such as adding Internal Links, External Links, Standard Content Pages, etc. This menu will change based on the Contributor s current permissions. History History is a detailed list of the latest assets a user has accessed. This can be used as a shortcut to get back to often used assets. Tools Tools will give the Contributor the ability to search for existing assets (using a basic or advanced search). The Contributor will also be able to adjust their current User Preferences. Help Help allows the user to access the online Cascade Server User s Guide as well as a User Forum. Files and Folders UH CMS Basics Updated: June,2011! Page 3

4 Cascade CMS uses files and folders to organize web content. The files and folders have special parent-child relationships. These operate just like files and folders on your PC. To access these files and folders click the arrow in the upper far left corner of the home screen. Asset Types Before attempting to create assets within the system, the contributor must understand what types of assets are available and how the assets interact with one another. File (Default - File - Images,PDFs, Docs, Excel, etc) Files are generally linked as external files associated with other content. These are usually used as supporting materials or main content that cannot be contained within a Standard Content Page format. Folder Folders are used to contain assets within the directory structure. They are the building blocks that let the contributor define the relationships within the hierarchy. All assets within the site must be contained in a folder at some level. Folders can be nested in order to deepen the site structure and thus keep the navigation usable for end users. Folder with Standard Content Page This asset creates a folder at the specified level and generates a Standard Content page within that folder. The default naming of the Standard Content page is index. This page type is used to create the majority of pages found within the site with the exception of News Articles. UH CMS Basics Updated: June,2011! Page 4

5 News and Events Article This asset creates a News and Events Article and will automatically be placed within a pre-defined folder (your site s news section, if your site has one). Each page, when created will also receive an automatically incrementing filename that can be overridden from the system tab. Articles located in the predefined directory will be indexed and used on other pages within the site such as the main News and Events Listing page. Redirect Physical Page This asset creates a Redirect Physical page at the specified level. These pages are not visible as a preview through the CMS. These pages can be created throughout the site and will be indexed as though they were a Standard Content page. When pushed to the live server, these pages will create a physical file on the live server that will utilize PHP scripting in order to initiate a server side redirect. This will send the end user to the editor designated URL. Creating a Standard Content Page How to do it: (any option of these three) 1. The New menu 2. Content Wizards 3. Copying an existing file To create a page first choose one of the methods above and choose Folder with Standard Content Page. This will create a folder with a basic page inside the folder (index). There is only one page per folder and its always called index. UH CMS Basics Updated: June,2011! Page 5

6 The folder itself is used for navigation purposes. For example if you name your folder Science the URL to get to the index web page inside that folder would be: or Depending on how your site is setup in the CMS This is called a system name. The system name refers directly to the URL for the page. System Names should not contain spaces or special characters(except for dashes) and be all lower case After creating a Title and System Name, you can check to Include when publishing and Include when Indexing (whether you want the page to show up as a link on the left hand side of the page(menu)) Click submit UH CMS Basics Updated: June,2011!

8 Fill in Display Name (This shows up on your page a like a heading) Fill in Title (This is meta data for the browser and Google to use when indexing your pages) Also Keywords and Description Web Content Editor This is an area for Rich text editing or HTML based editing.

When finished editing web content don t forget to click submit UH CMS Basics Updated: June,2011! Page 9

10 Additional Content Areas additional content areas allow users to create more content that is appended at the end of the Standard content areas. Users can create Rich text content or append another webpage internally from the CMS. Easy Editing Shortcut From the Folder list on the left, each folder and file has a small arrow pointing down that will open up shortcuts for editing.

11 Internal vs External Links Internal links are links to objects and pages in the CMS. External links are URL s to external sources outside the CMS UH CMS Basics Updated: June,2011! Page 11

(See instructions for Inserting images from previous section) Related Links Related links are banks of links on the left or right of the page. These links are customizable and can be added in sets. Related links should be information relating to content, not actually content itself. For example, if you have a link to a PDF or PowerPoint document in your content, a good related link would be a link to download Acrobat reader software that the customer can use to read that PDF. Related links should NOT contain Navigation links UH CMS Basics Updated: June,2011! Page 18
