Managing Content

All text, images, and other information on your site are considered content. Content is captured in various content types that define a specific grouping of content based on common elements or function.

When creating or editing content, you may notice help text below the fields. This often includes information such as required dimensions for images, available HTML tags, or other useful information. Look for this help text if you are unsure what some field's purpose is. See figure 1 for an example of this help text.

  • Details about using images within your text content.
  • Step-by-step guides for various functions within the Rich Text Editor (RTE).
