Creating Web Pages
Create a web page within a record component
- Click on the pencil on the Record menu and the Administrator Actions drop-down menu appears.
- Click on Webpage from the Administrator Actions drop-down menu.
- Complete the web page creation form. The 'Creator' and 'Date created' fields are automatically filled in with the creators name and the current date, but you will need to fill in the other fields and select the Security classification and Index Security classification levels.
- Below the web page creation form you will see 'WYSIWYG' web page editor where you can enter the content of the web page you wish to create.
- Click Save.
You can use 'WYSIWYG' web page editor like many other word processors, it has a space in the main screen for editing the content and toolbars above it containing functions such as bold, italic, font etc, for formatting the text.
The editing tool allows you to include rich content such as tables, images, Flash media, bulleted lists and links to other pages and sites.
You can also edit the front page by entering the HTML code if you are confident with that. You do this by clicking on the HTML Tab at the bottom right of the editor. However large scale pasting of HTML code from programs like MS Word is not advised, since these contain customs tags and mark-ups which corrupt the eventual layout and formatting. If you want to transfer the content from a word processor, then paste it into the box and then click on the HTML clean-up button on the the editor's toolbar.
