Content Tab Overview

The Content tab is the most frequently used tab within OU Campus. It provides access to the primary functions for editing pages. Most users will have the Pages, Assets, Recent Saves, and Recent Publishes areas available to them, but the functionality under the Content tab depends upon user level.

Content tab functions

Pages

When using the DirectEdit login method, the Pages view shows the available editable regions. Once a region is chosen for editing, the WYSIWYG editor toolbar is shown. In expanded view it shows the files and subdirectories for a directory and the Page Actions toolbar. The page actions include a comprehensive set of functions that can be performed on any page. Available functions are dependent upon authority level.

When expanded further is shows a selected view of the pages and directories listing and icons. This is the default view when clicking Content > Pages. Expanding and checking out a page reveals more icons and many of the icons and functionality are the same as on the Page Action toolbar. For more information, see Page Actions.
