The Ektron Content Management System (CMS) can be accessed in two ways:
It is easier to use the Web browser to navigate through the site to the content that needs to be edited. When you are logged in (and not in preview mode), colored boxes appear around areas of content as you move your mouse over these areas.
Note: If your website has been converted to the new design, you will only see an orange outline around content blocks, not the other colors listed below.
When you right-click your mouse within one of these colored boxes, a popup menu appears. Below is a sample popup menu.
Note: For content on a page that has been converted to the new design, do not right-click. Instead, click on the “hamburger” menu icon at the top right of the content block (see image at right).
The items on the popup menu will vary depending upon the permissions granted to you, whether the content is available for editing, and other factors. (It may also look different if your site has been converted, but the options remain the same.)
To edit the content, click Edit. This will open the content for editing in the workarea.
(Note: Only choose Edit in Context for quick, easy edits, such as spelling corrections. Full editing options are not available with this option. Here is more info on
Editing in Context.)
To locate the content within the workarea, click on Properties and then look at the workarea tab or window. You can edit the page from there as well.
