Posts and Pages

Purpose

This article is designed to guide you through the differences and use cases for posts, pages, and their respective organizational methods in WordPress and UO Blogs.

Similarities

Both posts and pages use the same editor interface. The default visual editor is a what-you-see-is-what-you-get (WYSIWYG) layout which behaves like a word processor program with rich-text abilities (bold, italics, underline, links) and web heading levels. Font sizes and styles are typically set by the chosen theme and can only be altered by enabling a plugin for the editor.

Posts and pages can be tagged with keywords to help organize content and to assist in search engine optimization for your site. Featured images can be added to both as well.

Slides in the CAS Department Theme

Purpose

This article is to guide users of the CAS Department Theme in UO Blogs through the process of creating a slide on the home page of their department website.

Slides are customized posts that consist of an image and an associated post tagged to the image’s caption that are displayed on the designated homepage for the site. Follow the process below to create a slide.

Requirements

This process is specifically for CAS Department Theme users.

The theme is available for any campus entity to use but it is not available in the Appearance > Themes menu option. If you are interested in using the theme, submit your UO Blogs URL in a ticket to the UO Information Services Service Portal and they will apply it. After having the theme installed and you decide to change your theme, you must submit another request to have it reapplied.

For those who would like to see the theme and its features before proceeding, check out the CAS Design Toolkit here.
