July 2017 Updates
Posted by Megan Otis on Monday, July 24, 2017 at 4:20 PM PDT
We have a few announcements to share with you all!
Content Type Encyclopedia
We have launched a new resource for content editors: the Content Type Encyclopedia. The encyclopedia consists of a list of all of the content types available, which you can search and sort based on the zones they’re designed to go into on the page, and the permissions group to which they’re available. Then each content type has an ‘encyclopedia entry’ with an example of the content type, and information on how to use it on your page.
New content type: Color Box Navigation
Based on your requests, we are also pleased to announce a fun new content type – Color Box Navigation – a new template that’s inspired by the design used on the Admissions page. If you’re interested in adding this content type to your landing page or homepage, see the new Color Box Navigation entry in the new Content Type Encyclopedia with instructions on when and how to use it on your page.
Web Team Blog
Also new to the website, Jason and I are reviving the Web Team Blog, where we can catalog these email messages to you all for future reference, and where we will write blog posts on various topics that you will hopefully find useful as content editors. Our first two blog posts can be found here:
- Megan's Tips and Tricks for Easier Navigation in the CMS
- Jason’s post: Using lists to make your content more skimmable
Design refresh coming soon!
MarCom is currently working with our brand agency 160over90 to refresh the design of the top level pages and provide additional template options for our Seattle U websites. We will share more details with you all when they become available – so stay tuned!
