Selecting a Page to Edit

When you first log in to OU Campus, you will see that the page through which you entered will appear with editable area buttons. You can select an editable area OR choose another page to edit by clicking on the Content Tab or Pages button. Note: You will get the same result by clicking on either.

Content Tab

Content Tab and Pages Button

The Pages button (Full Screen Editor View) is the default view for the Content tab. This button displays the list of editable Web pages. The list of editable web pages includes a comprehensive set of functions that can be performed on any page. It provides a list of all the folders and files that make up your Web site.

Also this area provides access to the New (create a new page or subfolder) or Upload (upload images or documents) functions

If you ever get lost within the OU Campus interface, CLICK on Content Tab, and you will find yourself back at the full list.

The "Content" tab is the most frequently used tab within OmniUpdate. Here users have access to primary functions they'll use when editing pages.

Steps
  1. CLICK on the Content Tab.
  2. REVIEW the list of files.

    • NOTE: The file names will be the same as what is included in the page URLs. Example: select-page.html.
    • REMINDER: The name of the home page for each Web site is always index.html. This is automatically generated by OmniUpdate when creating a new sub-section (subfolder) for a Web site.
    • If you have a sub-section folder in your site, such as for a class, you will want to click on the folder and then find the file. The home page for the sub section will also be called index.html.
  3. CLICK on the File Name link (far left) for the page that you want to edit. It will appear with the editable area buttons. Select an editable area to edit.
If you don't know the file name for the page that you want to edit

You have two options to figure out which file belongs to a page.
