Heading options

There are 6 heading sizes within Drupal. Heading 1 <h1> is the page title's size. It should not be used within the body field.

List of all header sizes

To change your text to a header size, click the Normal dropdown menu on the body field toolbar and select the heading size. As a rule, headers should descend in size as you move down the page.

Useful tools within the Body field
  • Image Upload icon
  • Link icon for linking to pages outside of your website
  • LinkIt icon (has a + sign) for linking to pages within your website
  • Templates icon (first row, top right) – has column templates, accordion menu template etc
Adding a new page to your navigation menu

If you want this page to live on your menu, check off “Provide a Menu Link” below the body field.

Go to the Parent Item dropdown and select where you want this page to live (what parent page should it live under?)

**If it should live on the green primary navigation, then select “Primary Navigation” as the Parent item.

Customizing your page's url

If you have created a new page, you need to customize the url:

At very bottom of page under Body field, Uncheck “Generate automatic URL alias” box and manually type in your custom url path in the URL Alias Box below.  Do not put a / in front.

Example: You’ve created an Our Team page under About section of your site.  Your url path could be entered in the field like this:  (no / in front of the first word, all lowercase)
about/our-team

Example: You've created a new primary navigation menu item called About. Your url path could be entered in the field like this:  (no / in front of the first word, all lowercase)
about

**If you saved the page first and forgot to change the url path:

  • Click Content on top bar
  • Click edit next to that page title
  • Scroll down to bottom left sidebar – click “URL Path Settings”
  • Change url path

Click Save at bottom

Unpublishing a Page

By default, when you create a page and click Save, the page is published and "live."

If you added the page to a menu, then the public can find your page right away on the navigation menu.

If you did not provide a menu link, the page is live, but no one will be able to find it on your navigation menu. A person could access it via search or by having the direct url link.

Publishing Options

If you are working on a draft and would rather keep the page unpublished, click on "Publishing Options" in the bottom left sidebar and uncheck Published. Then click Save button.

Note: The page's background will be a light pink to denote that it is unpublished.

Editing a Landing Page:

Unlike Universal pages, you cannot navigate to a landing page and use the editing gears to edit the page. Instead, follow these steps to edit a landing page:

Click Content on the white navigation bar. Use the search bar at the top of the page to filter by:

  • Title
  • Page Type - select "Full Width Template"
  • Author
  • Published or Unpublished
  • Vocabulary

Then click the Apply button to see a list of filtered results populate below. Once you find the page you want to edit, click edit to the right of the page title.

Search Filter

 

You can re-arrange existing nodes with the drag and drop tool or edit/remove nodes by clicking the button to the right of each one.
