Edit Page Content

The Edit Content easy button appears on the right side of the page and can be found on every page you can edit the content for.

To edit the content on a page:

  • Click the Edit Content easy button. A dialog with formatting options will open.
  • Create, type, and design your content using the formatting tools. 
  • Click the Publish button to save and publish your work.

Styles, markup, and other content, such as videos, pictures and links, are outlined below.

Formatting Ribbon Tab

The FORMAT TEXT ribbon tab provides familiar formatting features. 

  • Change the font, color, bold or italicize text, indent paragraphs, add bullets or numbering. 
  • Add styles, modify markup, and and other content, such as videos, pictures and links.

Paste Content from Websites or Documents

To transfer a paragraph or a page of content from another website or document:

  • Copy the source content to your clipboard.
  • Click Edit Content on the destination page.
  • Paste your content using your mouse's right-click functionality, or by clicking the Clipboard drop-down arrow and then clicking Paste

Tip

If the Paste button is not activated, check your browser. Paste using the Clipboard menu does not work using Chrome or Firefox, because those browsers are blocking javascript for security reasons. You can still paste using your mouse's right-click menu. To activate the Clipboard menu's full feature, use Microsoft Internet Explorer.

  • To remove the source formatting select the pasted content and click the Clear Format button (pink eraser) in the Font menu. This removes existing formatting and HTML so you can apply new styles which will match your site's style and formatting.

  • Click Publish to save and publish your work.
     

Tip

Some HTML and text formatting cannot be removed using the Clear Format feature. To ensure all formatting is removed we recommend first copying and pasting content into a text editor such as Notepad (for Windows) or Text Editor (for Mac). Then re-copy the plain text to your clipboard. This will remove all underlying formatting and any poorly formed HTML.

Styles

The Styles menu provides preset heading and text styles to ensure a uniform, consistent look across your site.

Markup

The Markup menu and Edit Source button allow you to view and edit the underlying HTML of your web content.
