1. How do I access the site
Login/ My Folder
First, make sure you're using a modern web browser. To take advantage of the full power of the editing tools Plone offers, be sure you're using one of the following browsers:
|Windows:||Internet Explorer 5.5+,
+, +, +|
|Macs:||+, +, +|
To edit your website, you'll first need to log in. When you do, you'll see that additional features of Plone appear to help you edit and organize content.
- If your web site has a log in link (often near the top right), click it to open the login form. There may also be a login portlet in the left or right column of your site, prompting you for a username and password.
- If there is no log in link to be found, add /login_form to the end of your website's URL. So for instance, for http://18.104.22.168/HLA we would log in at http://22.214.171.124/HLA/login_form. In the resulting form, type in your user name or password. If you forget your password, follow the instructions on the screen to have it emailed to you.
III. "My Folder"
From the welcome screen that comes up, make your way to Your Personal Folder from where you will be able to add or edit informaton in your folder and on the site.
* Note that there are different kinds of pages on HLA Plone site. The ones we will be discussing here are known as "documents".
IV. Add/Edit a Web Page
Plone divides a normal web page into a few discrete parts we call "fields".
When you open My Folder, you'll notice that it has a thin border enclosing it with tabs along the top. You'll notice that the View Tabs is selected. This means that you're viewing the page as it normally appears. The documents that you will created and be able to modify will be enclosed by the green border.
Click on Add Item on the right side of the edit tab to actually access the content. The fields appear here with some explanations. Here is some context for the four different fields:
Title: This appears in the title bar of the browser window, as the headline of the page, in the navigation; basically any time a page is referred to, the title is used. This field is required; it should be descriptive and not too long.
* The red square that appears to the right of the Title label indicates that it is required; Plone will protest if you leave it blank.
Description: This is a short lead-in to the
document -- usually the introductory paragraph to the page. It
appears after the headline of the page but before the body text.
While this field is optional, we strongly encourage you to use
it. It also appears in search result listings to provide
additional context, and as a pop-up when you hold your mouse over the
Body Text: This is the main part of the page, and the part that allows you to use Kupu, Plone editor.
