Editing an Existing Page

To edit a page that exists on your site, select it from the Site Content Panel and click the Edit button at the top of the screen.

There are different sections on the page, and within each section, different content types you can use on your page. You'll see a preview of the content in a collapsed content type. To expand and edit collapsed content, click the shaded bar with the module name or click on the content that's previewed.

Editing and Saving a Page

This video demonstrates how to edit an existing page in the CMS, preview accordion content and save your changes. (Please note: this video has no sound.)

Content Section

The Content section is where you will edit the main content area of your website (the content that displays to the right of the navigation bar). This section contains nine different content types:


The Sidebar is the area below the left navigation. The Sidebar can be the same for your entire website, or can be different for each page. There are six types of Sidebar sections.

Content Below Main

The Content Below Main section is all content that falls below the content in the Content section. This content spans the width of the page horizontally (including below the Navigation and Sidebar). There are eight types of Content Below Main content.

Example of Content Below Main

On the Distinguished Faculty page, when you scroll to the bottom, the Focus on Faculty section uses a Content Below Main: Feature content type.

Adding, Removing, and Rearranging Content Types

For all sections on the website, you can add a new content type by clicking the plus (+) sign, remove a content type by clicking the minus (-) sign, and rearrange items within a content section by clicking the arrows. You cannot move a content type into a different section (e.g., something created in the Content section cannot move to Content Below Main).
