Using OU Campus FAQs

Below are lists of some of the more frequently asked questions we get about using OU Campus.  If you still have questions, feel free to email webmaster@wku.edu.

How do I add a link?

Links are added through the WYSIWYG editor. Do note that internal links (links to pages on www.wku.edu) are treated slightly different than external links (to pages NOT at the www.wku.edu domain). View our self-help on adding a link to your page.

Can I change page templates after creating a page?

Yes, though it is not as easy as clicking a button - which is why you should give special care to picking the right template from the beginning. If you do want to change your page's template, see our self-help on changing templates.

How do I change the title in the grey bar?

The title in the grey bar is controlled by the Page Name field on each page through Page Properties. Remember to save and publish.

How do I turn on the slider?

To turn on the slider, visit Page Properties and select "Turned On" for the slider. Make sure to save and publish. If your page does not have the slider properties, please email webmaster@wku.edu and let us know what page you need the slider on.

How do I get images into my slider?

Slider images must first be uploaded and published. If your images have not been sized properly, you can use the Upload and Edit feature to resize your images. After you have uploaded and published your images, view the Page Properties of the slider.inc file. View our self-help on modifying sliders for assistance with your slider.

How do i put a unique slider on a page?

Each directory (folder) can contain one slider.inc file.  Therefore, each folder can have a unique slider.   We recommend creating the new folder, and copying the slider.inc file and the index.pcf file into that folder.  The newly copied slider.pcf can be modified separately.

How do I modify my site's navigation (menu)?

Your site will have one or both of the following navigation files: nav_left.inc and/or nav_top.inc. These files contain your sites navigational menus. You can view our self-help on modifying navigation menus for assistance in modifying these files.

How do I modify my site's staff listing?

Staff listings are managed through OU Addons. By default, all Site Managers have access to update staff listings for their site. Though, access to OU Addons is controlled separately from OU Campus and therefore we have the ability to add any person with a valid WKU NetID to access your staff listing. The Main Site Contact should make any requests regarding access to staff listings. For more help, please see our self-help on staff listings.

Why can't I see my image or document on my site after uploading?

Most likely you have not published the image or document.  During the migration to v10, we turned on the Binary Dependency Manager feature, which means that documents and images are now stored in staging and must be published before being visible in production.
