Help! CMS2 tips and tricks

Hyperlinking

One of the most basic building blocks of the web is the hyperlink (also known as a link). If you've ever used a website, you will have used a hyperlink at some stage; hyperlinks provide the connections between pages and documents on the web. Hyperlinks can be used to link to documents or pages within your own site, within the University's site, or on sites external to the University.

Editing basic site files

Your site file is the template that brings together your content and supplementary content files and turns them into web pages. You cannot create web pages in CMS2 without a site file. A site file controls the order of your content in the left-hand menu, the number of content items on your page, and part of the URL.

The web publishing system, TeamSite, automatically formats your entries in the form into a standard staff profile page and publishes this to the web.
