Adding a workshop is a two-step process that involves first creating a "parent" Workshop Group with general information about the workshop, and then a "child" Workshop with the specific date and location information.

Adding an article to the Extension website is a two step process that involves adding an Article product, and then adding content within that article.

The title of your article, webinar, learn now video, online course, publication or in-person workshop impacts the success of your product.

Like your product title, the short description you develop for your product also serves as an essential tool in introducing customers to your content.

Lead images are used in product listings and on the product pages. Photographic images should be landscape orientation in as close to a 3:2 ratio as possible.

Category selections on a product determine where it lives on the website. Every product is required to have at least one set of categories selected.

The Extension website relies on your expertise to provide a trusted source of science-based education. We want our users to quickly relate to our website content. One way to achieve this is to identify Authors, Instructors, and Speakers on all products.
