Add Items to a Collection

  • Items can be added to an existing collection in two ways: through the web browser, or through the workarea.

    Note: If a collection already appears on a published webpage, and the collection is edited to add/remove items, the page it appears on does not need to be submitted again for the changes to take effect.

    The initial steps for editing through the web browser will vary depending on whether or not your website has been converted to the new design, or if it an unconverted (original) site.

    Unconverted Sites

    1. Log into staging, and go to a web page that displays the collection in the staging web browser. Right-click within the green box that surrounds the collection (only visible when not in preview mode).
