LOGGING IN

Step 1: Go to your website

Step 2: In the footer, click on "Website Log In".

Step 3: Enter your NetID and password into the Single Sign-On for the Web screen.

Step 4: After logging in, you will be redirected to the Extension homepage.

Step 5: Navigate back to your website. You can tell you are logged in when you see the black bar at the top of the page.

VIEWING ALL SITE CONTENT

Step 1: In the Administration menu, hover over "Affiliated Content" and select "Affiliate Site List".

This will allow you to see the list of sites that you have access to.

NOTE: Make sure you are on the correct site before you access this screen. If you are not on the right site, your pages will not look correct, your links will not work and you might not be able to edit the page.

Step 2: Clicking on the Site name will take you to a list of content on that site. You can also navigate to the site by clicking the "view site" link to the right hand side of the list.

USING THE CONTENT EDITOR

The Body section is the main area of the page. You can use the tool bar to insert images, text, links, etc. This works very similar to Word, so some of the buttons might look familiar.

**WARNING: Some of the styling will look different while editing it than it does after you save.

Source

You may access the HTML code through the "Source" Button. If you are not familiar with HTML code or how to write it, we encourage you NOT to use this as it can break your page if you are unclear of how to do it correctly.

Paste

Use the Paste button to paste text from other software or websites. When you paste content into the body without using the paste button, you bring in a lot of unwanted formatting. By using the Paste button, all of this formatting is automatically stripped out.

Step 1: Click the paste button. A dialog box will appear.

6

Step 2: Place your cursor inside the dialog box and use your keyboard shortcuts (Control + V for windows or Command + V for Macs) to paste your content.

Step 3: Click ok and the text will be placed in the body of the page where your cursor was located.

Table

Step 1: Click the table button. A dialog box will appear.

7

You can enter the rows and columns that you want on your table using the fields on the top left corner. You can also use the header dropdown to make the top row and/or column into a header.

Adding a header is necessary for website accessibility. Screen Readers use headers to provide context about the table to users with visual impairments. Headers can also help users navigate the information in the table.

The caption and summary fields can also be used.

The caption is like a heading for the entire table. This helps users find a table and understand what it is about and decide if they want to decipher the information.

A summary conveys information about the organization of the data in a table and helps users navigate it. Summaries are only needed for complex tables and should not duplicate information present in the caption.

8

Captions are required for web accessibility rules. This helps screen reader users find, navigate and understand the information that is in the table.

You can also format the text within a table using the formatting options from the content editor.

If you need to edit the Table (add or remove rows or columns, etc) after it has already been created, right click within the table and select from the options in the menu.

Horizontal Line

If you need to separate your content, then you may want to use the horizontal line.

To use the horizontal line break, click on the button. The line break will be inserted into your body text where your cursor is.

If your horizontal line is on the last or the first line of your text editor, you can click on the line and it will move up or down appropriately.

Text Formatting Buttons

The basic text formatting options: bold, italic, underline and strike through are after the superscript and quote buttons.

To bold, italicize or strike through your text, select the text you want to format and click th
