Q: How do I upload images to the server so that I can add them to my page?
A: You can get images to the server three ways. 1. If you have the appropriate access, you can upload batches of images into the image library. Once there, they are available for all publishers to add them to their pages while they are editing them. 2. You can upload images via image/photo galleries. Again, once they are uploaded, they are available to add to your pages. 3. You can always upload images to the server while you are in a page editing it. Simply click the image icon and then "browse server". You will notice at the bottom of the pop-up window, there is a "browse" button to select an image on your computer and then send it up. We encourage you to provide a brief description of your image using the box below the browse button. This will allow you to find the image using the search function no matter where you are in the site.
Q: How do I add an image from the image library into my web page?
A: While you are in a page editing it, simply click the image icon to add an image. Then, click the "browse server" button. The file browser displays and you will see a link labeled "Imagespace" at the top of the window. If you click that, you will be presented with thumbnails of all the images in the image library. Clicking a thumbnail will insert the image into your page.
Q: When I paste text from a Word document into my web page, I experience unexpected results or the formatting is very different from the established web site styles.
A: Microsoft Word has always been the culprit of using it's own proprietary mark-up. To avoid this, you will see some icons at the top of the page editor. One icon is a clipboard with a W on it and the other is a clipboard with a T on it. These two buttons are very helpful in helping to strip out the proprietary mark-up. The W icon is "past from Word" and the T icon is "paste as text." You can use the W icon to insert content you have copied from Word, but depending on how complex the content is, it may not render the results you expect. Often, you will find it's best to past as text (T icon) and then re-format and style your content using the tools in the Campusuite page editor.
Q: I wish the page editor window was bigger so that I could see my layout a little better while editing my page.
A: At the top of the editor, you will see a blue monitor icon. Click this to enter full-screen editing. This will allow you more room to work. However, keep in mind that when you save your page, the content is flowed back into the width of the web site pages. This means you should not insert large images that will not allow the text to flow around it when you page is viewed by others.
Q: How do I add a brand new page and link to my web site?
A: Click "Edit Navigation" in the top grey bar. The left navigation of the site will be present in a "tree" fashion. You can click "Add Parent" at the top to add a new left side link, or you can click "Add Child" next to any parent link to add a child under that link. You will notice you have many options when creating new pages for your site. You can link to a Campusuite module, adding instant news, calendar, photo functionality, or you can click the "Add New Page" checkbox to create a new static page that will allow you to compose your content in the page editor.
Q: I've added a news release to my web site. How do I share it with other departments now?
A: Go in and edit your news release again. Scroll down to the bottom and expand the "Advanced Options." - You will see two "slush windows" that allow you to select the departments you wish to share the release with in the left pane, then push it over to the right pane... effectively sharing your release with those departments. Keep in mind that while the owner(s) of those departments can not edit your news release, they can "un-share" it if they do not want it to appear in their news.
Q: How to manage the properties of a particular web page? For example, I would like to add noindex/nofollow tags to the META area of my page so that is is not found by the Internet search bots.
A: While editing a page, notice a link/button at the top right called "Properties." Expanding this allows you to add the noindex/nofollow meta tag, as well as additional meta keywords and descriptions for the pages you do want found. You will also see extra features that will allow you to "syndicate" or share your page content with other areas of the web site.
Q: How do I manage META data for my page(s) or add the "noindex/nofollow" tags to prevent bots and spiders from indexing page(s)?
A: While editing a page, notice the "properties" link at top-right. Click this link to open the page properties area. You can add META keywords and descriptions if you want your pages found in the search engines, or, click the "Add META Noindex, Nofollow" checkbox to tell bots and spiders not to index the page.
