Available content items

See below to learn how to add a content item to a page.

The following content items are available to use on Five College sites (click their names to learn more about each one; where a link is unavailable, one will be added soon, so please check back):

Article
Articles are used to post text, and files directly associated with text, on a page. Most content is added through this kind of content item.

File Upload
Use this content item to upload images, PDF files, and other kinds of files to your site.

Gallery
Allows you to create grid-based galleries from the files (usually images) you have previously added to your site as File uploads.

Redirector
When placed on a page, a redirector sends non-logged-in users to a different page without having to do anything and without being aware of the difference.

Subpage list
Allows you to create a list of subpages (the items that appear in the left menu), in a table that can contain one or many columns.

Webform (accessible after training on its use)
Create a new form or questionnaire accessible to users. Submission results and statistics are recorded and accessible to privileged users.
