Think of your site and subsites as filing cabinets. Each drawer in the cabinet is a channel. Folders in the drawers are sections. Paper in the section folders are pages. And apps are the content on the pages.
- Sites and subsites: A website can be a site or a collection of sites. If it is a collection of sites, the site has a top district site and then school subsites below it.
- Channels: Each site or subsite has channels that help users to navigate the websites. The channels change depending on the site. They could be district contact information or a school teacher directory. Channels often have more than one section. Channels must be in the channel library before you can use them in your sites and subsites.
- Sections: Sections represent the second highest level of content organization on the site. If you add more than one section to a channel a menu of all of the sections appears when users move their pointer over the channel. Many districts and schools use sections to create their department, club, activity, sport, or teacher content and assign the appropriate user(s) editing rights to their section.
- Pages: Pages display the content the user sees. Sections can contain any number of pages.
- Apps: Apps are the building blocks of a page and help with formatting content. There are different apps for different types of content, such as text, images, and links.
Your district and school websites are built in the Site Manager. Depending on your privileges, use the Site Manager to manage users, configure sites, or add content to your pages.
Only users who can configure or edit your websites have access to the Site Manager. What you see in the Site Manager depends on your privileges.
School Website Tips
In your Section Workspace, you can create, organize and edit your pages.
New Page allows you to create a new page.
Organize Pages allows you to drag and drop your pages to change the order or to create a hierarchy.
The Recycle Bin stores pages that you've removed until you are ready to permanently delete them. The page search feature comes in handy, if you to have many pages in your section.
In your Section Workspace, you'll also see a Current Pages block, Quick Links to Common Tools, and a snapshot of Total Visits to your workspace on the end-user website. If your district has either Blogs or the Social Media Framework, you'll also see a block for Pending Comments. This will allow you to Approve, Review or Decline comments right in your workspace. There are additional one-click access links in Common Tools and Pending Comments.
In Common Tools, selecting All Tools takes you to the Tools tab. Under Pending comments, selecting All Comments opens the Approve Visitor Comments window, also found in the Tools tab. The green status button next to a page signifies that the page is currently active. This button is actually a toggle switch that will toggle between active and inactive. By default, new pages are always active.
Selecting the Actions button next to a page allows you to edit the page, set page options, get a link to a page, copy the page, move the page, delete the page, or set viewers. You can also access tabs for Tools, Editors & Viewers, Membership, and Statistics. On the Tools tab, you can view your section tools and apps.
On the Editors & Viewers tab, you can add users or groups who can edit your section or limit who can view it. On the Membership tab, you can select groups or specific users to receive messages from your section. On the Statistics tab, you have access to the statistics for your section. And finally, you can view your website and access the Help Center from the top tool bar.
