Creating a New Page

To create a new page in OU Campus, you will need to be viewing the folders of your site. To do this, click on the blue Content > Pages link in the top toolbar. Then follow these steps:

  1. Choose the type of page to create

    From the directory where your page will be located, click the green + New button.

     

    Click the new button

      

    A popup will will appear with a list of different page types that can be created.

    Depending on whether your department website is academic or administrative, you may see various different options here. Southeastern's web team may also add new types of pages over time.

     

    New Interior Section IconThe most common page type is a New Interior Section. This will create a new directory folder with an index.pcf file (your new page), in addition to an images folder, an assets folder, a side navigation file and a properties file.

     

  2. Fill out the information for your new page

    In the example below, we are creating an About page for Southeastern.

    The Directory Name should be short and descriptive. Directory names should also be lower case and have no spaces or special characters.

    Page Title and Breadcrumb Title are usually the same and will be the main page title text at the top of the page.

    Please also take a moment to fill out the Keywords and Description fields, as these are used for our search engine. The Keywords should be comma-separated, and should be words you think a visitor may use to find your page.

    If you would like a link to your new page to appear in your sidenav, make sure Add Navigation Item is checked as Yes.

    Click Create to save your changes. You can always revisit and modify the page's information through the properties button when you've opened up a page in the editor view.

     

  3. Edit your new page.

    See the Editing Pages in OU Campus guide for more detailed instructions on how to edit a page.

     

  4. Publish your new page.

    Depending on your user permissions, once you are done editing, you can either Publish the Page or Submit the Page for Approval.
