UChicago Sites - Content - Basic Pages

This article explains how to create basic pages in UChicago Sites.

In UChicago Site, you may use any of the 5 types of content--basic pages, news articles, homepage features & mini features, image galleries. This article focuses on basic pages.

Basic pages are pages with information that is not time-sensitive and does not change frequently, such as an 'About us' page. On a basic page, you can include body copy (your main content area), and one or more images in the right column.

Create a New Basic Page

To create a basic page:

  1. Log in to your UChicago Site.
  2. Go to the tool bar at the top and click Add Content

  3. Click Basic Page.
  4. Enter your content on the form.

Formatting Options

Your body copy formatting options include:

  • Paragraph and heading styles
  • Bold, italics, strikethrough, superscript, subscript
  • Bulleted and numbered lists
  • Horizontal lines and custom characters
  • Inserting videos and tables

If you add more than one right column image, slideshow buttons will automatically appear to allow the user to click through each of the images. Take a look at the sample basic page to get a sense of your formatting options and to see an image slideshow in action.
