CMS content library

The Content Library and the Asset options list are repositories of additional modules or widgets that users can copy from the main library and directly into their own sites or from the New menu within your site. The modules created are intended to add additional services, functionality and enhancements to the version 2 templates created through the partnership between the Web CMS Service team, University Communications and Informational & Educational Technology. The modules listed in the Content Library or New menu will only work with the standards version 2 template.

  1. Blocks which are only available to managers and administrators, and potentially require knowledge of databases and programming.
  2. Technically, the block can be attached in this location, but the width restriction will interfere with the content rendering properly.
  3. Ordered and unordered lists will be formatted without a preceding bullet point.
  4. Ordered and unordered lists will not display.
  5. The block can be attached, but was not designed for this location. If used here custom adjustments will need to be done by the user. Support for custom fixes will not be provided.
