Web pages created in OmniUpdate include a global top tab navigation menu and bottom footer for consistency across all pages. These cannot be edited.
Together they include a link back to the main page, a search
function, directories and links to areas throughout www.mtsac.edu,
including your Web site.
All other areas on your pages are editable, as designated by the green and orange
Green edit button areas are specific to a single page.
Orange edit button areas impact all pages within a folder on your Web site.
If you create a sub-folder for a sub-section on your Web site, it will
include a different left navigation menu that will automatically
generate a link back to the main page of your Web site.
Here's a list of editable areas of your Web pages and guidelines for each, starting
with the top left corner column image area:
Right or Left Navigation "edit picture area" - Section
intended for a banner or photograph that represents a view of the MTSAC campus
and/or your department within the MTSAC campus. Please contact the Web Team if you
have an image
that you would like included. You can leave this picture area blank.
Right or Left Navigation "edit navigation." Menu
section for creating links to the different pages in your Web site.
Categorize page links by using a special Left Nav green subheading
style. Add other links relevant to your Web site.
Right or Left Navigation "edit information area." Section to include contact information for the Web site Department/Faculty member.
Banner Section "edit picture area." This section
includes the title for your Web site or subsection, which is your
division, department, service, program or faculty name. The wording in
the banner title is in readable text. If you create a
sub-folder/sub-section Web site, you can change the banner title to
reflect the sub-section.
Page Content Area "edit main content." This section
is set at fixed width which includes a set margin. The page can be as long
as necessary, but it is best practice to not make a visitor scroll down
more than one or two screen lengths. The area includes a unique page
heading or page title. This should be left as a Heading 3 for ADA 508
accessiblity best practices. The rest of the page is the place for you
to be creative with your content.
Note: The global navigation files are called
"include files." They are separate files that are included with all the
main content body pages. If you open one of these files in the editable
page listing section, when you save and publish it, you will not see it
with any other parts of your Web page.
Best Practice: When editing an include area, first
open the index page and then select the area to edit. This way when you
save and publish the area, you will see the changes in the context of
the entire page.
CLICK on the Editable Area button for the section
that you want to edit. Start using the editor tool bar, creating a nice
layout for your content information with images, colored subheading and
