To create any other kind of page:

  1. Select Content > Add Content > Basic Page from the dark gray menu bar at the top of the page. The Create Basic Page form appears.

  2. Complete all sections as thoroughly as possible.

  3. Near the bottom of the page…

    for find the section called then

    pharm.ucsf.edu or a QBC-related grad program site

    Domain-specific Paths specify a URL path in the field provided.

    all other sites

    URL Path Settings clear the checkbox called Generate Automatic URL Alias, then specify a URL path in the field provided.

    If you’re not sure what to specify for the URL path, contact us at Website Support and we’ll walk you through it.

  4. Select the Save button at the bottom of the page. The page reloads, the editing interface disappears, and the page appears with a pink background indicating a draft revision state. The pink draft state exists to enable you to confirm the page looks as you hope before publishing it.

  5. While in the draft state, resize your browser window smaller to simulate a mobile device, then review the entire page. Note how the page looks differently. Confirm that the page still looks correct at smaller browser widths. If changes are needed, select the Edit Draft tab, then return to step 2.

  6. Near the page title, find and select the Apply button. The page reloads, and the changes you made have been published. Our sites are affected by multiple levels of web cache that make our sites load faster. Consequently, after selecting Apply your changes are not necessarily immediately visible to others. In most cases, you can expect your changes to be visible to others no later than one hour after selecting Apply. If changes are not visible after one hour, clear your browser cache or try a different browser or device. Contact us at Website Support if needed. Details: What Becomes Available When?

Change a page

See Get Started.

Moderation

For most of the pages in our sites when changes are made the system stores copies of earlier versions of the page. You can view or revert to any of these earlier versions of a page at any time. Some pages in our sites by design do not require moderation, and so the Moderate tab will not exist for those pages.

View an earlier version of a page

These steps enable you to see an earlier version of the page without affecting what the world sees.

  1. Select the Moderate tab.

  2. A timestamped list of earlier revisions appears.

  3. Select the View link for the revision you want to view.

Compare two versions of a page

These steps enable you to see an earlier version of the page without affecting what the world sees.

  1. Select the Moderate tab. A timestamped list of earlier revisions appears.
  2. Select the Compare Revisions submenu. The timestamped list of earlier revisions changes to include two columns of radio button selectors.
  3. Select one circle in each column for the two versions of a page that you want to compare, then select the Compare button in the table header. The page reloads and displays a side-by-side comparison of the two versions of the page, presented in HTML, which is a document format for web pages. If you’re unfamiliar with HTML, you can still likely find the changes you seek within the HTML code.

Revert a page to an earlier version

  1. Before taking this action, consider if some visitors to this page will be unprepared for this change. If so, take any necessary actions.

  2. Select the Moderate tab.

  3. A timestamped list of earlier revisions appears.

  4. Select the Revert link for the revision to which you want to revert. The currently published version is replaced by the selected earlier version. Due to web page caching, the previous version of the page might remain available to the world for up to two hours.

Remove a page

  1. Before taking this action:

    1. Removed pages will present an Access Denied error message.

    2. Consider if some visitors to this page will be unprepared for this change. If so, take any necessary actions.

    3. Consider where a link to this page might exist: on a business card? on a syllabus or flyer? in a report? in web browser bookmarks? What should happen if someone later tries to visit this page? Is Access Denied the best thing for him or her to see? Or, should he or she be redirected to another page? If yes, let us know at Website Support and we can set up a redirect.

  2. Select the link called Unpublish this revision. A new page appears asking you to confirm the unpublish action.

  3. Select the Unpublish button. Messages appear, confirming the action:

    The live revision of this content has been unpublished.

    Currently there is no published revision of this node.

    Due to web page caching, unpublished pages might remain available to the world for up to two hours.

    Authenticated web editors can:

    1. View unpublished pages.

    2. Find unpublished pages with the search box.

  4. Select the View Draft tab. The page appears with a pink background indicating a draft moderation state.

  5. Optional: To easily return to this draft later, bookmark this page.

  6. If the unpublished page was previously in a navigation menu, after unpublishing that menu item is automatically removed. You do not need to manually remove it.

  7. Pages are almost never deleted; only unpublished. If the removal is temporary, later you can select the Apply button to set the moderation state to Published. If the unpublished page was previously in a navigation menu, after republishing that menu item is automatically restored.

  8. If needed, contact us at Website Support.
