Adding content to a page

  • Title - it should be short and descriptive, avoid abbreviations, acronyms and characters (like $, &, @, % and quotation marks) and contain "keywords" people would search for.
  • Summary  - generally 1 sentence description (less than 200 characters) of the news item, event or webpage.
  • Text - the content. May contain paragraphs of text, lists (numbered or bulleted), email links, and hyperlinks (the "chain" icon appears in the text tool bar once you highlight text to link). For more information on working with the text (how to format text, how to add a hyperlink or email link, please see Working with the Text area).
  • Lead image - visually important. Use landscape/horizontal photographs (no line art, clip art, collages, or flyers). Provide caption and credit. Must be .jpg or .png format.
