This course covers many of the basic tasks needed by contributors to add and modify pages for their UofL site via the Plone 4 Content Management System. The materials and step-by-step instructions are aimed at a non-technical user. Participants will learn how to create new and edit existing pages and folders. We’ll utilize the TinyMCE visual editor to explore text formatting styles and lists. You’ll learn the differences in internal and external e-mail and web page links as you practice these skills. Next, we’ll learn how to jazz up your site by uploading and adding photos that are ADA compliant, as well as cover the processes and instructions for adding videos. Most importantly we’ll cover saving, previewing, and publishing your work… all new processes when using Plone 4. Come join us as we play in the Plone 4 sandbox!
