Editing an Existing Page
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."
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.
To access the page properties and other functions, first click the split-screen button. Using this button allows you to navigate between full view of the page and the folder structure.
Click check out. The page actions toolbar will then display more options.
If you are already in the folder structure view, you may navigate through directories of the website.
Please note: Avoid navigating to the directories which you do not have permission to edit (such as the top directory -- the main website directory). If you do so, you will have to navigate back your page via the "All Rights Reserved" pathway.
To edit a page and/or its properties, click the index.pcf file. You may also click the lightbulb icon to "check out" the page, which will provide more page functions within the folder structure view.
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.
Ou Campus users may easily insert and edit images by clicking the Insert/Edit Image button.
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.
You may also upload images from the Insert/edit image browser. To do so, click Upload. Click Upload & Edit if you wish to crop or rotate an image 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.
Enter a description of the image in the Image description field. If desired, add a border or update dimensions from the Appearance tab. Click Insert.
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.
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.
From the folder structure view, click the lightbulb icon to "check in" the page.
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 Revert icon from the folder structure view. You must first "check out" the page in order to do this.
After deciding which version you'd like to revert back to, simply click the version number, then click OK. You can now edit this page or send the page off for approval.
