Navigating to a Page's Edit Interface


OU Campus Users can access a page's edit functions via two ways: Direct edit or navigation through the folder structure.

Note: Accessing a page's edit functions will leave it "checked out" to that user. No other user will be able to edit that page until it has been "checked in."


1. Direct edit

From your web browser, navigate to the page you wish to edit. Scroll to the bottom of the page. Click the All Rights Reserved link. 

all rights reserved link


Log in to OU Campus using the same information you use for email and LeoNet.

Once logged in you will see small green edit buttons above the areas you have access to edit.  Click the edit button. If your page has multiple edit regions (i.e. a highlight box), there will be multiple edit buttons. Note: Clicking the edit button will "check out" the page meaning that no one else can edit it while you are working on it.


Click the edit button



2. Access through the folder structure 

To access the folders within your site, hover the mouse over Content in the top blue toolbar and then click pages. This will allow you to see all of the folders within your site. Once you are in this view, you can navigate through directories of the website.

Please note: Avoid navigating to the directories which you do not have permission to edit (such as the home directory (little house button) -- the main website directory). If you do so, you will have to navigate back your page via the "All Rights Reserved" pathway.


Click the split-screen icon


To edit a page and/or its properties, navigate to the folder where the page you want to edit lives and then click the index.pcf file. This will open the page for editing.  

Click the light bulb icon to check out the file. The page actions toolbar will then display more options.

Editing a Page


Using the WYSIWYG Editor (JustEdit)

The WYSIWYG (What-You-See-Is-What-You-Get) Editor contains the basic editing functions such as those found in Microsoft Word. See this Omniupdate documentation for an in-depth guide to the toolbar functions.

Once you have completed your edits, click the Save button to return to the page preview screen. If you wish to return to the folder structure view without saving your work, click the split-screen button in the upper left-hand corner. Don't forget to "check in" the page if your work is complete.

Inserting and Editing Images

Ou Campus users may easily insert and edit images by clicking the Insert/Edit Image button.


Add Image Just Edit


On the resulting pop-up, click on the Browse icon next to the Image URL field, and navigate to directory where the image is located. All images should be located in a sub-directory called /images.


JustEdit select image


You may also upload images from the Content/Pages view.  To do so, Click on Content in the top blue toolbar then click on Pages.  Navigate to your images folder and then click the Upload button in the top right area of the page. Click Upload & Edit if the image needs to be cropped or re-sized before uploading.

Note: While you select and insert an image from any directory of the Southeastern website, you may only upload images to directories which you have permission to edit.

Select the image you wish to insert. Click Select File


Select Image


Enter a description of the image in the Image description field. Enter the same information in the Tooltip field. If desired, change the alignment of the image under the appearance tab.

 Saving, "Checking in," and Reverting a Page

When an OU Campus user opens up the page editor, it automatically "checks out" the page to that user. Until users "check in" the page, other users may not edit it. It is important to remember to "check in" a page once you have completed your work.


 "Checking in" a Page

Once you have completed your edits, click the Save button to return to the page preview screen.

From the folder structure view, click the lightbulb icon to "check in" the page.

Reverting a page to a previous version

Every time a page is published, OU Campus catalogues the version of the page. Users may access the list of all previous versions. 

If you wish to restore a page to a previous version, click the Review icon from the page you want to restore and click Versions. You must first "check out" the page in order to do this.


Revert to previous version


After deciding which version you'd like to revert back to, simply click the version icon that says Revert.


Revert to version


           On the resulting pop-up, click  Revert  for the changes to take place. You can now edit            this page or send the page off for approval.
