Welcome to the Open Text KnowledgeBase. We have reorganized this channel after a careful review of customer feedback surveys and hundreds of tickets submitted to our support e-mail address.

Our goal is to display our help information so it is more intuitive to you. We have simplified the menu and created a list of Frequently Asked Questions. If you don't see the answer you are looking for while we are in the process of updating this channel, please contact us via our support e-mail address.

There are any number of reasons why your content may not be displaying on the live site. Most notably, the live servers which display the content have not been refreshed.

To refresh the live (delivery) servers, clear the delivery cache.

If you still do not see your new or changed content, try one of the following related solutions:

The Button Format provides users with a more graphically styled hyperlink that has a uniform appearance across all CMS sites yet remains consistent with the look and feel of the user's site.

Originally designed for use in the right hand column of the home page, it is available for use in any region configurator.

The single button format is available only through the region config. Simply select the "TitlButton" format available for Link and Document content types.

To add additional flair to your buttons, place a pipe character ("|") between two words in the Title field and the two parts of the title will then be differentiated in color. In the example near the top of this page, the contents of the title field are "MAKE| AN APPOINTMENT".

Additionally, documents and links placed in succession one after another on the subpage presentation template or in the top region of the row plus two presentation template and inside a region config will be grouped two on a line.

Best Practices to consider:

  • Keep your titles succinct and action focused (ex. Read Our Newsletter or Download the Application). Titles that are too long should be automatically truncated with an ellipses added to indicate more information. However, lengthy titles may (at times) may result in an additional third row of text within the button making it look cramped. (see image below)
  • Save your button format use for important, high-impact use. Placing 12 buttons on a page is probably not the best use of the format. Be careful not to simply duplicate your navigation, either.
  • Placing buttons above an Article content type will result in the text of the article wrapping around the button. While this may not be as much of an issue with one button, when two or more buttons precede an article, the text may attempt to wrap all the way to the top of the page. To remedy this, simply add the appropriate number of paragraph returns in the article body to move the text below the buttons.

Styling, or formatting, content can only be done using region configurators. 

The region configurator content type is the robust piece of content that holds other pieces of content (articles, news, images, etc.).

To style, or format, of your content:

1. Open the region configurator (pencil icon).

2. Select the Format drop down box for the piece of content you want to change (right column of the region configurator).

3. Choose a format (refer to your quick reference guide for the format lexicon, or just pick one and see how it looks, it's very easy to change it back or select a different format).

4. Click OK to return to ICE

5. Clear your management cache and take a look at the new style/format.

People content items are the most unique type of content in the CMS. Because faculty and staff sometimes have multiple appointments, the relationships within the database are quite complex, and adding or modifying people content is restricted to people who have received people directory training.

Please make sure that you have followed all the steps for Creating New People Content.

Adding new pages (channels) to your website is generally the responsibility of your website administrator. If you do not have a web admin in your unit, the best course of action is to take Class 3: Expanding and Supporting Your Website.

If you are an advanced user, have taken Class 3, and still need assistance, please schedule time in an open lab or request another copy of documentation.

Permissions

Because of the sensitive nature of University and College communications, only authorized users can edit content in the CMS for any site. Before using the CMS, you will need to gain access through LSA Development, Marketing and Communications (LSA DMC); contact us at lsa.web.support@umich.edu.

Users are granted authorization only for the department/unit site(s) they will work within – there will be no access to content owned by other departments. Additional permissions for advanced roles within the department/unit editing team will need to be determined after discussion with department/unit leadership and LSA DMC.

Overview

The CMS is built on powerful databases that are quite cumbersome and technical to work with directly. To provide a more friendly and intuitive work-experience, Open Text provides two user interfaces to manage web content.

Once your authorization has been granted, you can edit your website through either of the two separate interfaces:

  • The Application Console (AppConsole) AppConsole
  • In Context Editing (ICE) https://edit.lsa.umich.edu /YOURSITE.

Pointing your browser to the URL of the AppConsole or clicking on the editing icon in your ICE site will produce a log-in screen. If you have been granted permission by LSA DMC to work with the CMS, simply enter your UMROOT (not Kerberos) username and password to gain access.

The most basic level of removing content from your live site is to unpublish it, which takes the content off your live site. You can do this by either:

1. Clicking the Unpublish icon next to the content item on your ICE site 

OR

1. In the AppConsole, selecting the content item, and clicking on the Unpublish menu item

THEN

2. Click the Unpublish button in the New Job window

Best Practice Guide for Embedding YouTube Videos


Background

You may have noticed on YouTube, that after the video you’re watching ends, the player window shows a grid of “suggested videos.” These video suggestions are chosen automatically from the entirety of YouTube’s public video collection by their proprietary suggestion algorithm.

The channel owners have no control over the suggestions. In the first example, from the primary U-M YouTube account, you can see some suggestions from our channel, a paid commercial placement, and others from non U-M YouTube channels.

These “suggested videos” also appear at the end of embedded videos (YouTube videos on your own site) by default. This can sometimes lead to unwanted or inappropriate suggestions. The good news is that this behavior can be disabled.

Solution

Each time you generate embed code for a video, you will want to uncheck the box for “Show suggested videos when the video finishes.”

If you already have videos embedded on your site, it is easy to disable suggested videos without having to regenerate the embed code. Simply add "?rel=0" after the URL and before
the close quote. Below is an example highlighting the checkbox as well as the location for the code snippet. Go blue!

Remove content from your ICE site by breaking the association between the content item and the channel on which it is displayed. The method is different for both dynamic and non-dynamic pages.

Non-Dynamic Pages

The key to removing content from non-dynamic pages is to remove the item from the region configurator. To do so:

  1. Unpublish the content from your live site.
  2. Open the region configurator for editing.
  3. Select the piece of content you unpublished in step 1.
  4. Click on the Remove button.
  5. Make sure the content has been removed from the relator widget, callouts 7 and 8.
  6. Click OK to save your changes.
  7. You may need to refresh your ICE page by using the Floatee Menu box to see your changes.
  8. Clear the Delivery Cache, All Regions in the Floatee Menu box.

Dynamic Pages

One of the unique things about Dynamic Pages (news and events) is that content automatically appears and disappears based on the date; so you don't have to remove stale content. If, however, you have created something in error that needs to be removed:

  1. Unpublish the content from your live site.
  2. Delete the content from the CMS following the steps in the related article below.

Deleting content from the CMS is the most extreme form of content removal. Once content is deleted from the CMS, it is not retrievable. You must first unpublish the content you desire to delete.

  1. Navigate to the content item’s location in the AppConsole’s Content tab or in the Recent Items of your MyPage. 
  2. Exception: Media Images and Media Videos can only be deleted from their content editing form.
  3. Select the content item by placing a checkmark in the box next to it.
  4. Click on the red X from the menu above.
  5. Click OK on the confirmation window.

Where to Start
You can begin creating content from nearly every screen of the CMS.

ICE
Most content is created through the In-Context Editing (ICE) interface of the CMS, which are the screens with icons on them and the floatee menu in the bottom left corner.

Non-Dynamic Pages
A non-dynamic page is one with a region configurator on it. The region configurator is the primary means most editors use to create content in the CMS. Content is created in the AppConsole project that corresponds to the channel of the region configurator. 

To create content on non-dynamic pages, follow these steps:

1. Click on the pencil for the region configurator at the top of the page.

2. It will bring up the region configurator editing form associated with this channel.

3. Click on Create drop down menu.

4. Select the type of content you’d like to create.

Certain templates in the CMS (like news, people, and events templates) are designed to take advantage of organizational tags and relationships, which are controlled from within the individual content item by adding or modifying categories/classifications and channel associations.

Classifying Content

Most "subchannels" on your site are set up with query components that require the addition of a classification to a piece of previously created content for that content to show up on the subchannel. For instance, you added an event to your main Events channel, but also want it to appear on your Brown Bags subchannel, or, you added a person to the main People directory page instead of first adding them to the faculty page.

1. Open the content item for editing and click on the Classifications tab at the top of the window.

2. Click on the Add Classifications button.

3. In the resulting Select Classification Category window, navigate to your site, content type and 
    specific classification.

4. Select the classification you require.

5. Click OK.

6. Click OK on the content type window.

Associating Content

The term "association," refers to how content is assigned to channels in the CMS, which is automatically done either by creating it using the region configurator, or by creating it through the "create content" menu on a dynamic channel (news, event, and people query components). Manually associating content is rarely required by individual users, however one reason you need to know how to associate content is to add an event to your website that appears on another department's website.

1. Open the content item for editing and click on the Channels tab at the top of the window.

2. Click on the Add Channel button (on right side of the window).

3. In the resulting Associate Channel window, navigate to your sites event channel and 
    select the button to the left of the folder.

4. Click OK.

5. Click apply, approve and publish on the channel association window.

6. Clear delivery cache (click "all regions" in floatee menu).

These “suggested videos” also appear at the end of embedded videos (YouTube videos on your own site) by default. This can sometimes lead to unwanted or inappropriate suggestions. The good news is that this behavior can be disabled.

Solution

Each time you generate embed code for a video, you will want to uncheck the box for “Show suggested videos when the video finishes.”

If you already have videos embedded on your site, it is easy to disable suggested videos without having to regenerate the embed code. Simply add "?rel=0" after the URL and before
the close quote. Below is an example highlighting the checkbox as well as the location for the code snippet. Go blue!
