Discover how to add content to a new web page and publish it. Learn how to apply view and edit permissions to the web page, then compare the content you've edited with the previous versions using the highlighting tool.
In this training session, we’ll be creating new web content within CentricMinds.
Following the training video in which we created the Communications and Media page, we’ll now create new content for this page.
Let’s navigate to the new page.
And click Edit.
Once in Edit mode, we can choose to search for existing web content that we might want to display on this page.
We can choose an existing Text item.
And choose ‘Next’.
This action will display the existing web content on this page.
This demonstrates how you can reuse content on multiple pages within your site.
In this example, we’re going to remove this content and create some new content.
The Add Text item window appears and we can edit the default title.
We might change this title to, ‘Main Copy’.
And then we can add some text.
In this example, we’re going to use some web content from the CentricMinds website.
We’re going to select this copy from the website.
And we’re going to paste it into the new text item.
CentricMinds now offers you the option of removing styling from the copy that you are pasting from an external source.
We’re going to ‘Control Shift Vee’ and this will remove any styling and apply the default style to this web content.
Let’s put in a ‘Title’.
And an ‘Overview’.
And let’s highlight that, and choose to style it with ‘Heading One’.
Within the body, we want to add a new image.
We can select from the Media Panel.
We can also search within the Media Panel.
And we can browse for media by folder location.
We’re going to show another method for choosing media. We’re going to publish an image from our desktop.
We’ll use this image, here.
And we’re simply going to drag and drop it into the Text window.
The image appears inside the web content we’re editing.
We can manage this image by changing the width and height.
We can create links.
In this example, we’re just going to click ‘Ok’.
To recap, we’ve got a title, some new web content and we’ve also embedded an image from our desktop.
Advanced Options allow us to apply View and Author permissions to this content.
We can control which groups of people can view this content on the page.
And which groups of people can edit this content.
We can also set scheduling. If we want this content to appear at a certain date and time. We can also set Review, Expire and Archive dates for this content.
In this example, we’re just going to click ‘Save’.
This action publishes our new content on the Communications and Media page.
The title is already a ‘H1’, so let’s edit the text again.
And let’s change the title to ‘H2’.
Let’s edit the copy and make some changes. Let’s remove some copy.
And let’s add in ‘Here is some new edits I’ve made to this content’.
And then we’ll save and publish the changes.
We can see the change we’ve made to the copy.
The purpose of doing this was to demonstrate the versioning.
Under ‘Details’, you can now see that we have two different versions.
This version was created at eleven fifty six.
And we’re currently editing version one dot one at eleven fifty seven.
The compare tool enables us to compare the versions of web content, side by side.
So we can see this is version one.
And this is version two.
We can’t really tell the differences between these two versions of content.
But if we click on the Compare link.
We can now see the word ‘multiple’ was removed.
And the words ‘Here is some new edits’ were added.
The highlighting tool enables you to see what content has been changed by which author.
Once I’m done with the page. I simply click ‘publish’.
And we want to publish this to the site.
If we now exit Edit mode, and refresh the page.
We can now see the page has been published with our new web content.
