We use a content management system, Expression Engine, to power the FACS website. Expression Engine enables you to manage powerful web pages through a user-friendly web interface.
Different people have different roles in managing the website. The following roles are the most common.
Some office managers are Power Users because they get additional training to write new page content and publish new pages. To get this training, contact Jimmy Hansen
Almost everybody just needs to know how to find a page and make basic text edits to that page, including updating links. These directions tell you how.
You have two ways: by keyword or channel.
After performing either of those, you could additionally use the other if you see too many results. For example, if you search by keyword for "Students" and many pages come up, you can filter this list by changing the channel dropdown.
Select your link text then click the Link icon (looks like a chain).
Find your entry and make edits, following guidelines from The Open Text Field.
Go to Content > Edit > News or Events.
This removes people from the online directory, listservs, and anywhere they were the contact listed for a page.
Select your text then click the Remove Format icon (looks like Tx). After that, it still might look big like a heading; the first dropdown box would indicate this if this were the case. Change that box to "Normal" to remove the heading.
If that doesn't work, you can click Source (last button) and it would look something like <tag>your text</tag>. Remove the <tag>your text</tag> portion, then click Source again to see if it worked.See Removing Styles for more.
Expression Engine allows you to make text edits, which are most edits you'll need to do, to the website. However, when something more advanced is needed, feel free to contact Jimmy Hansen or Casey Gordon.
