Content Editing - force11/website Wiki

An initial guide to content editing on the new Wordpress site. Once the info here is resolved the docs will be moved to the FORCE11 Guide site. https://force11.github.io/website/#/

For support see the Wiki homepage.

Tools we use on the new site:

Access Control Levels (ACLs) and publishing workflow

Publish Press is used, this offers fine grained Access Control Levels as well as a publishing pitching and submission workflow.

Listing content, adding content, or editing

This is done though the normal Wordpress interface and what types of content you can edit or add depends on your ACLs.

Content editor

Gutenberg Editor

The Gutenberg Editor uses the Google backed concept of Web Components where each part of a webpage is an independent component.

In the screenshot you'll see the editor centre and left available blocks that can inserted.

Image library

Please note to use the image folders for keeping a tidy organisation of images and media. Files can be moved between folders without affecting their links. Note you can also make new folders as needed.

Template and custom styles editing

We use the Elementor Wordpress framework for editing templates and making custom styled pages. Elementor allows to easy and advanced UI features and design to be brought to the site. Due to its powerful customization Elementor access is kept to site administrators only as core site templates can be edited.

Training can be provided and parts of Elementor will be made available to site moderators over time.

The site now operates using Git and staging versions. These facilities can be made of to allow site customisation.
