Unlike coding straight HTML, the Web CMS uses pre-defined and pre-formatted content types that you add your content to.

While this does mean there is less initial flexibility for designing the look and feel of a particular page or sub-site (see Sub-Site Layout Options), it allows the college to present a unified and consistent appearance to our visitors, regardless of where they are within the site.

Pre-Created Pages (Back to top)

Several ?Page content types (plus Contact Us, which is a ?Webform) are created by default when a sub-site is created, depending on whether or not the site is for an academic group. These pages make up the list of links in the Sub-Site Navigation. These pages are not published, however, and will not appear until published. To edit these pages, you must use the ?Content List (filter on the "Page" Type to narrow the result).

The following table shows which content areas are created by default for each group type, and which of those content areas are published.
