UChicago Sites - Configuration - Taxonomy and Social Media
This article explains how site owners can apply advanced customization functions to UChicago Sites.
This section is intended for site owners only. Content editors and contributors do not have access to these functions.
This section describes some advanced customization you can apply to your UChicago Site. Because site owners have access to more advanced editing options, it's important to be cautious when making these changes as you have the potential to make more significant site-wide changes.
Tagging and Categories (Taxonomy)
News articles can be categorized as either "Announcements" or "Press Releases" and can also be tagged with any keywords you would like. When you visit the news archive, all of your news articles are organized by category. There's also a shortcut to a full list of all news articles, regardless of category.
To add or edit your news categories and keywords, click on the Edit terms shortcut in your toolbar. You'll see two "vocabularies," one called "News categories" and another called "Keywords." From this screen, click on List terms to see all the items in a particular vocabulary, or add new terms by clicking on Add terms. When you and other content editors create a news article, you have the ability to create new keywords by entering them in the "keywords" field at that time.
When you are logged in to your site, you will see a link in the bottom right corner Footer which says "Edit the Footer." When you click that, you will be able to edit your site's address information and all of the links which show up in the third and fourth column of the footer.
You are also able to edit your social media links which appear in the bottom left of your footer. Editing these links will also update the links which appear in the "Follow Us" block which appears in the left column of your homepage. If you do not have any social media links to include, you can just leave them blank and then remove the "Follow Us" block from the left sidebar.
