Content Editors
ƒ CMS provides three different content editors.
1. Ektron EWebEditPro
ƒ This WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor is the default and
recommended editor. Ewebeditpro comes with a custom written application called
the UNMC Media toolbar (Written by Steve Pera) , that allows users to insert media
into content. Ewebeditpro also provides a good and reliable spell checker. Figure
2.10 shows a screen shot of EWebEditPro. How to use the UNMC Media Toolbar
will be covered in the Inserting Media into Content section of this chapter. The user’s
guide for EWebEditPro can be opened by clicking the help button.

Figure 2.10
Ektron EWebEditPro
2. FCK Editor
ƒ This WYSIWYG editor is experimental and may become the default editor for
CMS in the future. Compared to EWebEditPro FCK is much faster in terms of load
time (time it takes for the editor to be displayed). FCK editor lacks a spell checker
and the UNMC Media Bar. Figure 2.11 shows a screen shot of the FCK editor.
Figure 2.11
FCK Editor
3. Plain Text Editor
ƒ This editor will let you edit the raw source code of your content page. This editor is
only for users that know the Hyper Text Markup Language or other web-based
languages (Javascript, Java). Figure 2.12 shows a screen shot of the Plain Text
editor.

ƒ A menu is made up of a series of menu items. See figure 3.1
Menu Items
Figure 3.1
Menu Items
ƒ CMS allows you to have up to 5 levels of menu items. See Figure 3.12
Figure 3.12
Menu Levels
Adding Menu Items
ƒ To add a menu item click Menu from the CMS menu and then click the Add Menu
Item Button. See Figures 3.13 & 3.14
Figure 3.14
Figure 3.13
Add Menu Item Button
The CMS Menu
ƒ Making an addition to your menu can be done in 5 easy steps. Figure 3.15 shows
you the Add Menu Item form.
Figure 3.15
Add Menu Item Form
• Step 1: Specify Menu Text - Type in the Menu Text for the menu item. This is
the text that will appear on your menu. See Figure 3.16
Figure 3.16
Add Menu Item Step 1
• Step 2: Choose where you want the menu time to appear - Select where you
want your menu item to appear in relation to other menu items. For example, if you
want your menu item to appear at Level 1, select the radio button next to the New
Level 1 box. Click on the underlined menu items to expand and constrict them.
Expanding the menu item will show the submenus items for the menu item and the
radio button for adding additional menu items under the given menu item.
Constricting will hide the submenus and radio buttons. See Figure 3.17
New Level 1 Box
Figure 3.17
Add Menu Item Step 2
• Step 3: Link Menu Item To a Web Page - This step allows you to link the given
menu item to external content or CMS content. CMS content is content added inside
cms. Adding content is discussed in chapter 2. Under step three, there are two
options available to you. The first option is used to link the given menu item to a
CMS record by selecting it from a dropdown menu. The second option will allow
you to link to a website outside cms. For example, if I wanted to link to the google
search engine, I would type in the following url: http://www.google.com and select
New Window for the target. Selecting New Window will open the link in a separate
window. The Same Window option will open the link in the same window as your
web site. See Figure 3.18
Select CMS Content
External Link
Target for External Link
Figure 3.18
Add Menu Item Step 3
• Step 4: Set Misc. Options - This step has two options. The first option will allow
you to disable the menu item. Disabling the menu item will cause the menu item to
disappear from your menu structure. This option is useful for menu items that you
may want to reuse in the future. Disabling Menu Items is discussed further later in
this chapter. The second option allows you to make the menu item
available/unavailable in preview mode. When the option is set to yes the menu item
will appear when you preview your website and disappear when the option is set to
no.
Figure 3.19
Add Menu Item Step 4
• Step 5: Click Publish - Click the Publish button to submit the new menu item.
The publish button is located at the top and bottom of the form. Click the Cancel
Button to be taken back to the menu list without submitting the menu item. See
Figure 3.20
Figure 3.20

Moving Existing Menu Items
ƒ CMS provides two methods of moving existing menu items. The first method is
changing the order of your menu items. The second method is to relocate a menu
item to a different level or on the same level under a different menu item.
• Method 1: Changing the Order - To change the order of your menu click on
Menu from the CMS menu. Next, click on the Edit Menu Order button at the top of
your menu item list. See Figures 3.31 and 3.32
Figure 3.32
Figure 3.31
Edit Menu Order
The CMS Menu
• The Edit Menu Order form is shown in Figure 3.33.
Figure 3.33
Edit Menu Order Form
• To change the order, select the number of the location you want to move the menu
item to. For Example, If I wanted the Level 1b menu item to be the first menu item I
would select the number 1 from the drop down menu next to the Level 1b menu
item. Once you make a selection the drop down menus next to each menu item will
become disabled and the order change will take place. Be sure to wait for the order
change process to complete before making another selection in CMS. See Figures
3.34 & 3.35 & 3.36
Drop Down Menu

Make selection from drowpdown menu
Figure 3.35
Drop Down Menus are disabled
Disabled Drop Down Menus
The Level 1b menu item is now
at the top of the list.
Figure 3.36
Changed Menu Order
• Method 2: Relocate Menu Item - To relocate a menu item click on the edit
button for the menu item you wish to relocate. For example, if you wanted to
relocate the menu item Level 1b, you would click on the edit button for the Level 1b
menu item. See Figure 3.37
Figure 3.37
Edit Menu Item Button
• In this example, I will move the menu item Level 1b to level 3 under the Level 2
Menu Item. To move the menu item to a different level you must navigate to the
desired sublevel by expanding the upper level menu items. See Figures 3.38, 3.39
and 3.4 for an illustration. After you make your selection please click the publish
button.
Click on the Level 1 Menu Item
to display its submenu items.

Disabling Menu Items
ƒ Disabling menu items was discussed briefly in the adding menu items section of
this chapter. If you wish to reuse a menu item at a later date you may want to
disable the menu item rather than delete it. To disable a menu item click on the edit
button for the menu item you wish to disable. See Figure 3.41
