UT Tyler Web Publishing Standards
OU Campus Updates and New Features
March 12, 2012
The Quick Search feature is a content search that allows the user to search for specific content on a page or within meta tags in order to easily navigate to pages that may need updates or to be reviewed. More information can be found on the Quick Search training page.
The Add-Ons tab (top-right tab) provides an interface for your custom applications. We will be adding more features to add-ons. Check it out for Web Guidelines, Template Styleguide and OU Campus Training and Tutorials.
OU Social (Facebook)
OU Social is a Facebook app that provides a powerful yet simple solution to increase the presence of the UT Tyler on Facebook. By linking a Facebook Page to OU Campus, users can select which OU Campus-managed webpage will be synchronized with tbe Facebook Page. This provides the ability to update social media and webpages simultaneously by editing one file.
To have your page set up in OU Social, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Send to Twitter
Send to Twitter allows users to automatically tweet when a page is published. Note: This feature does not insert any content from the page being published into the Twitter feed.
Snippets are pre-formatted HTML content that can easily be selected from the toolbar.
UT Tyler uses for Snippets: adding pull quotes to pages, table layouts and more.
Also coming are Assets - allows reusable content such as text, images, media, code blocks, links, etc. Reusable content is convenient when working with multiple files that require the same information. As reusable content, assets allow users to easily change an item that is used on several pages.
We will use Assets for content such as the Core Curriculum, student enrollment number, the UT Tyler Mission Statement and more.
- Image Galleries
- Comments and Polls
- Dependancy Manager (ensures that hyperlinks to pages that are managed within OU Campus are always up to date)
- Accessibility Check (for 508 standards)
- OU Campus 10.0 (new interface for OU Campus with updated functionability)
Training for new Features
Training sessions will be scheduled for using these new features. Online Training is also being added to the UT Tyler OU Campus online training and tutorials section.
