Creating & Editing Content

Folders

Folders act as containers for site sections and as a means to organize other content.  They are also used for breadcrumbs and Auto-Navigation.

To Create a New Folder

  1. Using the Menu Bar, click NEW  > DEFAULTFOLDER
  2. Enter a SYSTEM NAME, which corresponds with the website URL and appears in the Folder Directory. The system name should be all lower-case with no spaces (examples are “about” or “contact”)
  3. Select a PARENT FOLDER (the folder which will hold your new content, i.e. the location of the folder you are creating) by clicking the folder icon (folder icon) and selecting a Parent Folder. Click CONFIRM to record your selection
  4. Enter a DISPLAY NAME, which appears in breadcrumbs and in Auto-Navigation.
  5. Change the INCLUDE IN from “None” to “Left Navigation” if you want the Display Name of this folder to appear in the Auto-Navigation of your pages. Do not use this option if you are using a Custom Navigation for your left navigation
  6. Click SUBMIT to save the folder to Cascade Server

To Edit an Existing Folder

  1. In your Folder Directory, click either the folder’s name (for example, “about”) or the folder icon (folder icon) that is to the left of it. Do not click the plus icon (plus or add or expand icon): this will only expand the folder instead of opening it for editing
  2. Click the EDIT tab
  3. Edit your DISPLAY NAME, which appears in breadcrumbs and Auto-Navigation
  4. Change the DISPLAY? option from “None” to “Left Navigation” if you want the Display Name of this folder to appear in your Auto-Navigation. Do not use this option if you are using a Custom Navigation
  5. Click SUBMIT to save your changes to Cascade Server
