You've spent hours working on your site and everything is ready. You've launched it to the web so it's live and then waited a week or two, but no one has come to visit. You check Google and discover your site doesn't even show up when searched, not by title or perhaps by URL. What's happening and how do you fix this?
Anthony shows us how to duplicate some of the layouts and components found on the UCDavis.edu home site. Settle in to watch his two-part video tutorial and learn the best practices for this approach to site design.
We pleased to announce the release of the SiteFarm redesign! In keeping with campus policy, we have worked closely with the Office of Strategic Communications on the design with active input from our user community to create our new 2021 theme. The changes primarily focus on aesthetic updates and usability tweaks, though we've added a couple of new features too. If you haven't been following our Redesign Overview page in the last six months, read on to get the list of changes along with their links to new or updated training documentation.
It's not immediately obvious, but SiteFarm includes a mechanism to help you make space above or below your images and lists. You may have already caught a glimpse; a dotted red line and a curved arrow on the far right side there and then gone again as you move your mouse. Let's check out what the little red arrow can do for you.
If your site is any larger than a few pages and/or you've been very active adding or using existing media, it's quite likely you've found your Media Library content to be growing at a quick pace. It's never a bad idea to consider how your images and files are organized, and you can do that through Taxonomy—before, during, and after you've added them to your site.
Are you a Site Factory user? Yes? Good. This is for everyone, but especially for you. You may have used Fancy File Delete in the past and it worked just fine. Randomly, you may have experienced an instance or two where it looks like the file is gone from your site. You checked; it's no longer listed in Files and it's nowhere to be found in your Media Library. Read on and we'll show you the tricksy-hobbitsy way Site Factory can mess with your ability to remove sensitive documents in a timely manner.
If you're using YouTube videos on your site you've no doubt noticed by now that YouTube videos aren't displaying reliably on your site when using the URL icon from the WYSIWYG bar or the External Media block. Here's an update on what's going on and suggestions for how to work around this super annoying issue.
You know you published your webform. You know people are interested in using it. You wait, and wait, and wait some more, and wonder when the submissions will start arriving. At a certain point, it occurs to you to check your Junk folder and—lo and behold!—you have oodles of submissions waiting for you. How can you avoid this annoying frustration and have your webform submissions show up where you expect to see them?
