Adding a Page [Drupal 10]

Process for Adding a Page

  1. After logging in to your website, you will see a black menu bar across the top (if you do not see a black menu bar, contact your site administrator for assistance).
  2. Select the Content menu, then Add content. You will see a list of different types of content that you can add. If your site is using the official Georgia Tech theme, then you should choose Basic page unless you know you want to add a special type of content.
  3. Type your page title into the Title field.

Creating Links in GT Editor (Linkit)

If your Georgia Tech Drupal website has the GT Editor feature package installed, then it also has the Linkit module, which gives you an enhanced interface for creating links to local content.

Accessibility and Usability of Links

To comply with accessibility law, and good sense usability guidelines, always make the visible text of your link something that clearly indicates what the website visitor is going to be taken to when following that link.  Some examples of improper link text include:

CK Editor / GT Editor Toolbar Control Buttons

Many campus Drupal websites have either the What You See is What You Get (WYSIWYG) text editor called CKEditor, or the custom built specialized version of CKEditor known as "GT Editor".

The table below describes many of the control buttons you will find on the CKEditor or GT Editor toolbar.  If your control buttons don't look like these, you should ask your site administrator or local web developer to look into upgrading your site to the latest version of CKEditor.

Resizing Images

It is important to resize images to best fit the needs of a particular web page.  When an image is larger than necessary, this results in users wasting time and bandwidth (which they may have to pay for on mobile devices) to download image content that they will never actually see.
