Editing a Page in OU Campus

On Campus Login Only: OU Campus is only available to wired on-campus computers that are not in a lab setting and "CSUSM" wi-fi connections. Off-campus access has been revoked due to a campus-wide tightening of application security and is not a direct function of OU Campus.

There are two methods available for users to make web edits on campus:

Footer Link Access - Direct Page Edit:

Following this method will bring you directly to the edit view of the page you were on and promotes fast and easy content updates.

  1. Navigate to the web page on the live site (example: www.csusm.edu/web/)
  2. Scroll to the bottom of the page to the footer.
  3. Right click anywhere in the page’s footer that is not a link. On the far left-hand side of the page a Edit this Page link will appear.
  4. Select the Edit this Page link
  5. Log into OU Campus using your campus single sign on.
  6. The page will load in the preview; select the Main Content editing button.
  7. The section being edited will be outlined in a thinly lined box. The rest of the page will be greyed out.
  8. Make the site edits as needed.
  9. Select the Save button in the WYSIWYG editor – this will save your changes as a development draft.
  10. Select Publish if the edits are ready to go live.

Please note: If you do not publish your changes after saving, your page will be "checked out" and lock the page from future edits from other users. To check in content and allow other people to edit the content you will need to click the lightbulb icon button.

For Advanced Users - OU Dashboard:

The OU Dashboard method lets you navigate through the campus site structure to pages needing edits. This is more time consuming than the direct page edit method and is similar to how Cascade was set up.

  1. Log into OU campus by going directly to OU Campus and logging in with your campus credentials.
  2. You will be taken to your OU Dashboard.
  3. Select the Content tab in the blue bar; a column will load on the left side
  4. Navigate to the site needing updating through the folder structure.
  5. Once a page that needs updating has been located, select on the page in the file structure.
  6. The page will load in the preview; select the Main Content editing button.
  7. The section being edited will be outlined in a thinly lined box. The rest of the page will be greyed out
  8. Make your site edits as needed.
  9. Select the Save button in the WYSIWYG editor – this will save your changes as a development draft.
  10. Select Publish if the edits are ready to go live.
  11. Continue editing pages as needed.
