OmniUpdate uses a folder and template-based system to manage Web site and sub-section
files that make up a Web site.
- To get to the New page or folder function, CLICK on the Content Tab.
- You will see the full list of your Web site folders and files. Make
sure you are in the correct folder where you want your new page file to
reside. (Do not create new pages in your PDF or image folder.) If you
want to create a new page in a subfolder, make sure you are in the right
directory by looking at the Location section above the list of files.
CLICK + new in the upper right hand corner of your file listing/workspace interface. You will
see the new page or subfolder templates available for your site.
SELECT which template to use for creating your page. Note:
At this point, you may choose to create a sub-section with a Web page
(sub-folder). By choosing the sub-folder, you will create a new section
that will include its own left navigation menu. Remember:
You will need to create a new link on your main Left Nav menu to it.
There is a CLASS template for Faculty who want to create a folder with
multiple pages and a pre-set Left Menu. Most likely, you will want to simply create a single new page.
FILL IN the text boxes with the information for your page or sub-folder.
- The Page Name is the wording that will be displayed in the Banner Breadcrumb and as the Page Heading in the new page.
- The New Page Filename or Folder is the wording that will be included in the page URL. IMPORTANT: Use lower case only with NO spacing. Make sure you don't delete the .html extension
when creating a single page.
- Leave New Page Access to everyone (unless
you want to restrict the access to a specific user within your group).
Since access to your main folder is already restricted to a specific
user or a group of users, anything you create in it will inherit the
same permission settings. 'Everyone' is meant within the current group or user permission.
DOUBLE CHECK that the information you typed is how you want it and CLICK the Create button. The new page with edit buttons will appear once OmniUpdate is done creating the
page. If you are creating a class folder, be patient as it may take a couple minutes because
several pages are being created.
Begin editing the content in your new page as described in the Editing a Page section instructions on the Left Menu. Note: If you log
off OmniUpdate Publish without publishing the new page, you will not be
able to see it in a Web browser until you log in to OmniUpdate Publish
