OU Campus Content Management System
Final Check Overview
Final Check gives a content contributor the capability to perform a series of quality assurance tests on a page before publishing. These include spell checking, link checking, W3C validation, and/or accessibility compliance. An administrator can configure the options, if any, to auto-run when an OU Campus user publishes a page. Even if Final Check is not configured to run automatically at the time of publish, the site may configured so that a user may manually run any enabled checks.
The available Final Check options are based on the activated Page Check options. For more information about Page Check and available options, see:
Running Final Check
Final Check can be configured in one of two ways:
- To be forced to be run all the checks or a selective combination of page checks at the time of page publish
- To allow users to choose which page checks, if any, to run at the time of page publish
If Final Check is configured to force Final Check, any time a page is published by clicking on the Publish button from the page preview or edit view, or the Publish menu for the page from the Pages list view, any selected Final Check options will run. They must run to completion prior to the Publish button at the bottom of the screen being available to complete the publication process. Once the check has completed, click any of the indicated errors to view them. It is strongly advised that the errors be resolved prior to publishing the page. Note that the identification of errors, warnings, or problems does not prevent the page from being published.
If Final Check is not configured to run automatically, click Run All to run all checks, or click any of the enabled checks to selectively run checks.
Once the check has completed, click on any errors or warnings to view the report.
Note: Any options that do not run automatically can be run by simply clicking on the button with the name of the check.
