  3. Accessing Sitecore

  4. Accessing Sitecore • The Sitecore system can be accessed by visiting the following URLs: • Development Site: http://med-sc-dev.usc.edu/sitecore • Production Site: http://med-sc-cms1.usc.edu/sitecore/login • At the login screen, there are various options that allow access to the two different methods of editing content. The two content editing modes are the Content Editor, and Edit Web Mode. We will be using the Content Editor for our training and encourage you do to the same. 4

  5. General Web Site Editing Overview & Best Practices

  6. Content Structure • Content within Sitecore is stored within a tree structure 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 6

  7. Content Structure • Content within Sitecore is stored within a tree structure • Pages contain content which is split into data fields of various types • Single line of text • Image • Rich Text 7

  8. Content Editor • In the Content Editormode, content is viewed as a hierarchical tree. Nearly all of the editable content will be found under the ‘KSOM’ item in the content tree. The Content Editor mode provides some functionality that is not available in Web Edit mode, such as copy/paste and item sorting. 8

  9. Editing Items • Editing Items • Before you begin, please be sure that you disable your pop-up blockers. • Locking and Item • Before an item can be edited, it must be locked. Locking prevents changes from being overwritten by another user editing content at the same time. Content locking can be turned off if there are very few content editors. • If the item needs to be locked, then the warning will appear beneath the name of the item. To lock the item, click the Edit button OR the ‘Lock and Edit’ link on the page. After clicking the Edit button, the item can be edited. 9

  10. Creating a New Version • It is recommended at this time to create a new version prior to making edits on a page. This way if you wish to discard your changes, you may just revert to a previous version. To add version go to the Versions Tab and select the Versions drop down. Click the ‘Add Version’. 10

  11. Deleting Versions and Unlocking Items • To revert back to the previous version and remove your changes, you must delete the current version. First, select the page you would like to revert back to previous version. Click on the Version tab. From there, click Remove to remove the current version. 11

  12. Deleting Versions and Unlocking Items • To unlock and item or discard your changes, you must go to the Review Tab and unlock the item. Once on the Review tab, select ‘My Items’. From the pop-up select the item you would like to unlock and select ‘Unlock’. When you are finished select ‘Close.’ 12

  13. Creating a New Page & Adding Content

  14. Creating a New Page • Updating Text • Any text that is able to be edited can be made directly to the page. • Adding Pages • To add a page in Sitecore select the area you would like to add a page to and right click. Select Insert  Insert from Template. A menu will appear where you will be able to select the type of page you would like to add. • Next, a pop-up will appear asking you to name the new page. Enter the name and click ‘OK’. • Adding Metadata • All pages will have metadata associated with them. See slides below for details. 14

  15. Creating a New Page • For MAC users: • Rather than right-clicking to create a new page, you can add new page in the ribbon. Click on the section under which you want to create the page, and under the Home tab, you will see page options. • You will also see the other menu options in the ribbon that you would see in the right-click menu 15

  16. Changing Page Titles • The page title that is displayed in the Menus and Navigation throughout the site comes from the name of the item. To change the name of an item, right click the item, and select the ‘Rename’ option. Some items cannot be renamed. 16

  17. Saving and Checking In Items • While you are working, you may Save the work you are doing. You can click the ‘Save’ button or click CTRL+S. • When you have completed your changes, you must check the page back in. This will allow other editors to see your changes, but these changes will not appear on the site. To check in the item, from the Home tab select the Edit drop down. From there you can check in the item. 17

  18. Previewing Changes • Changes to content items can be previewed by clicking the Publish tab at the top of the content editor, then clicking the Preview button. A new browser window will be displayed, and changes can be previewed before they are published. • Please be sure to close your preview window once you are done viewing your changes as that window will display all items checked in and may appear that items are being published without actually being published. 18

  19. Publishing Items • The workflow process is in place to ensure that content is appropriately reviewed before being published onto the live website • There are two workflows in place: • KSOM Content Workflow (used for standard site content and pages) • KSOM News and Events Workflow (used solely for news and event items, and to publish specifically to the Home Page and Master Calendar) • Each workflow process follows a few basic steps (shown below) and begins when a user wants to publish content to be displayed on the site • In order to publish an item, it must go through a workflow process. • News and Events Workflow Steps Content Workflow Steps 1 1 2 2 3 3 4 5 19

  20. Publishing Items • As a Content Author, you can only submit an item for approval. To do this, select ‘Submit’ from the Edit drop-down menu • After a Content Approver approves the item, then it will be published • After a Content Approver approves the item, then it will be published • As a Content Approver, you can submit AND approve your own items, if desired • An item is published after it goes through the workflow process and is approved *For more details on the workflow process, please see Workflow Process Details 20

  21. Upload an Image • There are two methods of uploading images to Sitecore: • The following slides will provide a step-by-step guide to uploading images using both methods • 1. Upload the image to the Media Library • This method is best for adding multiple images to Sitecore at once • 2. Upload the image as you are creating or editing a page • This method is best for adding images “on the fly” while you are creating/editing a page 21

  22. Upload an Image – Media Library • 1. Upload the image to the Media Library • This method is best for adding multiple images to Sitecore at once • At the very bottom of the tree structure, you will see Media Library section • Clicking on this will take you to the Media Library, where all images and files are stored 22

  23. Upload an Image – Media Library • 1. Upload the image to the Media Library • This method is best for adding multiple images to Sitecore at once • By clicking into the Images folder, you will see all of the images stored on the site • Within the Images folder, you can create new sub-folders to organize your images • There are three ways to upload new images: • Upload Files • Upload Files (Advanced) • Drag & Drop • Images must be published for them to appear on the site, just like all content. • The correct sizes (in pixels) for each image type are as follows: • Banner Image – 644 x 218 • Feature Image – 274 x 72 • More News & Research Image – 65 x 48 23

  24. Upload an Image – while editing page • You can also upload images while creating a new page or editing an existing page • You can do this in two ways: • When adding a banner image to a page • Through the rich text editor • Banner Image • Select the ‘browse’ button • Rich Text Editor • Select the ‘insert Sitecore media’ button • Whichever way you choose, you can upload a new image from the current screen without having to navigate to the Media Library • 2.

  25. Upload an Image – while editing page • By selecting either ‘browse’ or ‘insert Sitecore media’, you will see the Media Browser screen display • 2. Upload the image as you are creating or editing a page • This method is best for adding images “on the fly” while you are creating/editing a page First, navigate to the ‘Images’ folder You will see images organized just as they are in the Media Library. From here, you can select an existing image to add to the page. If you need to upload a new image for the page, you can use either the Upload or Drag & Drop feature 25

  26. Upload an Image – while editing page • Upload File (make sure to Publish after you upload) • Drag & Drop (make sure to publish after you upload) • 2. Upload the image as you are creating or editing a page • This method is best for adding images “on the fly” while you are creating/editing a page Simply upload the file from your computer as you normally would Drag the file from your computer into the folder view that displays 26
