Resource

Resources are a way to create organized, browsable links to other content, which can be a page in your site or on another website. A Resource can display on the Resources Landing Page and/or on a multipurpose page, with a graphic icon representing the information available. 

To make a Resource:

  1. Choose an internal title that will help you (and anyone else who edits in your website) to understand what content is represented in the card. Most of the time, this title can match the display title.
  2. Click "Browse" to choose an icon from the icons folder in your media library. Whenever possible, try to match the icons used on artsci.wustl.edu to be consistent.
  3. Enter the title that you want to display at the top of the card.
  4. Enter a subtitle
  5. Enter a URL.
  6. If the URL is pointing to an external website (not a page in your site), check the "New Window" box. This will cause the page to open in a new window, which is a best practice for website navigation that takes a visitor out of the current website.
  7. If applicable, choose a category for the resource.
  8. Save

To Re-order Resources

Resources are ordered by date (most recent at top) on the Resources landing page. The date does not display to visitors.

Resource Queue method:
Any resources added to the queue will display in the order you place them.

  1. Click on "Resource Queue" in the grey shortcut bar.
  2. Start to type the name of a resource then select the one you want form the list that pops up.
  3. Drag the resources into the order you want them to appear.
  4. Any resources that are not in the queue will appear after the ones in the queue. They will display ordered by authoring info date.

Changing the date method:

  1. Go to find content and click "edit" next to the Resource you wish to re-order
  2. Scroll down to the authoring information tab at the bottom and change the date.
