If the content is a node (applies to Pages, People, Events and Org Units), you can usually navigate to that page, and there should be an Edit tab at the top of the page.
You can also use the Admin menu: from Content Management, select Content -> List. Use the Filter mechanism to list only content of certain types, status, or categories.
Find the page and click the Edit tab. For People, use the "Edit People" link on the Coe Admin menu. The reason is that all faculty members are linked to their Profile page, which is not the same as the person themselves. You want to edit the Person themselves.
From the Admin Menu, under Content Management, select "Create Content" and then select the content type.
Content can be deleted: once you are in Edit mode, there will be a Delete button at the bottom of the page. Content can also be unpublished: in Edit mode, click on Publishing Options near the bottom of the page.
The usual way to upload files is to navigate to the page you want the file to appear on. Edit that page, and look for the File Attachments link. This will open a Browse/Upload window. Once you have uploaded the file, you can use the default List option to list the file, or you can use the URL of the file to link to it directly.
The url that is shown to you after you upload a file looks something like this: http://coe.web-dev.arizona.edu/sites/coe/files/pg_studentapple.jpg. In this case, the filename is "pg_studentapple.jpg" To link to it, use the part of the url that starts after the site name, including the leading slash: /sites/coe/files/pg_studentapple.jpg. This link will work from any page, not just the page where you uploaded the file. We are probably going to install a File Management module that will make all of this easier.
Much of the content is coming from "Views" or "Blocks" that cannot be easily edited directly. Happily, usually what you want to do is to add or remove items from these listings, which you do by editing the content directly. For example, for adding events to the Calendar, instead of trying to edit the Calendar page, you create a new node of the content type Event. Once its fields are filled out and it is tagged with the correct vocabulary terms, it will automatically appear on the right pages.
Here's how to modify or add content that shows up in views or lists:
From the Admin menu, use Site Building -> Menus to list or add menus. It is important to know that when you create a menu, Drupal then creates a "Block" for that menu. To control what pages the menu is going to appear on (for sub-nav), you will need to edit the Block, not the menu.
This site uses three main navigation aids:
For both the top menu bar and the audience menu, there should only be TWO layers, no deeper -- top items, and sub items (one level down). Sub-navigation in the right sidebar should only have ONE layer.
Most of the content are pages. These will have an Edit tab once you are logged in. But we have also created a couple of custom content types, with their own fields. We also added a special field to the Page content type for landing pages.
All Content Types:
All content types have a "Title" field that is required. All content types also have a "Body" field. For most pages, this is where you put the body of the page. For other content types, it can be used or not used depending on what you need. For example, with the Org Unit content, usually you will want to use the Address and Phone number fields. But if you want additional info to show up on the Contact Info page, put it in the Body.
Landing Pages: We have added a special field, called "Highlight Image," to the Page content type. If you put the filename of an uploaded image in that field, there is a custom template that kicks in and creates the format for the landing page. You can edit the landing page and change the image. Or, you can create a new landing page simply by creating a new page, and putting an image in the Highlight Image field.
The event content type is used to add content to the Calendar listings and, potentially, the home page. In addition to Title and Body, the Event content type has these fields:
Headline: "Use this field to create a headline for the home page of the site. Please enter a headline of no more than 58 characters. Then create a hyperlink for the headline. The hyperlink can point to the Event node itself (you will need to save the node first to get its number), to an external url, or to a pdf or other document."
Vocabularies: this connects to the Taxonomy module (see below). You use these drop-down lists to tag an event with a Semester, a Status (options: Archived, Current, Front Page, Not in Calendar, Not Published Yet) or an Event Type (options: College/University, State/Local, etc.)
Date: the date of the event. There are "from" and "to" dates to include events spanning multiple days. Both are optional, but without a "from" date, an event won't appear on the calendar.
Time: start time of the event
The Org Unit content type is used to generate the "Contact Info" pages. In addition to Title and Body, the Org Unit content type fields for Address, Phone, Fax, and Email. Org Units should also be tagged with an org unit tag from the Vocabularies (taxonomy).
This content type is used for all of the people listings on the website, including Directory, all "Faculty and Staff" listings, and all of the Who's Who pages. To add or remove people from these listings or pages, you do NOT edit the page itself. Instead, you edit the Person and if necessary change the Vocabulary/taxonomy tags that are attached to this person.
For this content type, the Title is intended to contain LastName comma FirstName for easy alphabetizing of these nodes. In addition to the Title and Body, the Person content type has the following fields:
There are several Taxonomy Vocabularies attached to the Person content type, and it is important to use these so that people show up on the right pages, and for info that appears on the Directory pages:
Primary Affiliation: Choose one of the Org Unit departments to show up in the person's directory box.
Org Unit: select one or more Org Unit tags for the org units that this person is associated with. This controls which "Who's Who" or "Faculty and Staff" listings the person will show up on.
Status: faculty or staff
Faculty Expertise: select all of the expertise areas that apply to this person
Taxonomy is a way of tagging certain content with certain categories. This is imporant for listing the right content on the right pages, as pages such as Calendar or Who's Who are grabbing events or people based on what they are tagged with. Usually, content can be tagged with more than one item from the list. You can view the items in a vocabulary using Content -> Taxonomy -> List.
