My Current Pages Overview

My Current Pages is both a dashboard gadget as well as a sidebar gadget. Although each gadget is displayed differently, they share the same functionality. This gadget is helpful when working on a large site with multiple files and directories as it provides a way to easily select a file to edit rather than navigate through the directories. The user can click the path link to navigate to the checked out page where it can then be modified or published, or use the status indicators to check a page back in. When accessing the My Current Pages gadget, the following elements are displayed:

  • File Path: The page's location within the site
  • Status Icon: Clicking the light bulb checks the page back in, which allows another user to make modifications to the page.

Both the sidebar and the dashboard version of this gadget have the same method for checking files back in. To check a page back into OU Campus:
