About the Content Manager
The Content Manager allows you to create and update pages in various elements with the same design and a variety of content. You content is safe within the Content Manager as it is kept in a separate environment to your design. This allows you to update the site’s content as you'd like, without having to update the site design.
In most cases, a Content Manger is not included, however, each template provided by Netball Australia features a Content Manager.
To access this, select the relevant icon from the tool bar at the top of the page.
You will then be presented with a range of various options, for information about these, click here. Select Manage Content to proceed.
You will then be presented with options to update various sections of the webpage such as Documents (Policies), Sponsors and Staff Profiles.
Once selected, you will then arrive at a table which can be changed to a list or gallery. This will allow you to add columns and rows using the relevant + icon. Content can then be added by typing or if a file or URL is required, using the + icon or 3-dot menu.
Adding a New Column
To add a new column, select the + icon next to the last column heading.
A pop-up will then appear to complete the details of the column such as the name and field type. There are a range of field types available such as text, buttons, video, image, and documents. Select Save once you are satisfied with the details.
If you wish to sort or filter the content, simply click on the heading of the relevant column. You will then be presented with a range of options to filter and sort through.
Note: When sorting, this will be the order in which each of the content will be displayed on the website.
Sorting Non-Alphabetical Content
If you would like to sort content in a non-alphabetical format, this can be done by accessing the content manager (refer here).
Once you arrive in the content manager, select the relevant collection (for the purpose of these instructions, we will be sorting contacts/staff profiles).
To begin, select the + icon to add a new column.
From the subsequent pop-up type 'Numbers' into the field name (this will automatically populate the field key), then select Number option from the dropdown menu.
In the newly added column, enter number 1 in the field which corresponds with the item which you would like to appear first, continue this by entering 2, 3, 4 and so forth until each cell is populated with a number.
Select the cell at the top of the column and from the resulting pop-up, choose Sort Low to High.
Exit the content manager to view the resulting order format.
Tags can be a great way for you to choose which content is displayed. By default, your website page sponsors should be set up to have Major Sponsor as a tag which is assigned a filter to display sponsors that contain this tag.
On any page that contains content link to the Content Manger, quick links to each collection will be displayed. These appear as shown in the image below.
Clicking on one of these brings up a menu bar. To edit the filters set up within these, select Settings from the menu bar and navigate to Tags.
From here, click on the Tags and select the ellipsis. From the menu select Edit.
You can change the Field Type, Condition or Value. The current tags can be removed or added to utilising a comma in-between. For example, (Major Sponsor, Club Sponsor) etc. Click save to ensure the changes are updated.
