Creating/Updating the Issues Section

You may have noticed that there is not a content type for creating an Issues page. The issues content is managed in a different area. To create or update an issues page, hover over “Structure” in the black navigation bar, then hover over “Taxonomy” and click on “Issues”. 

You will see a list of the issue pages that are on the current website. There is a link called “Show Row Weights”. If you click on the link you will see the weights of each issue page. You can change the weight if you want the page to appear higher in the navigation dropdown and on the issue listing page. Or you can click and drag the crosshair icon next to each page title as well.

If you want to edit one of the existing issue pages, then you can click on the “Edit” link in the “Operations” column for that issue page. If you want to delete an issue page, simply click on the “Delete” button at the bottom of the issue page you have opened for editing.

If you want to create a new issue page, go back to the Issue listing page and click on the “Add Term” link above the list of Issues.

In the “Name” field, enter the name of the Issue. Click on the “Menu Settings” link and click on the “Provide a Menu link” option to open the Menu Settings section. This is the same menu settings option you have seen when creating a Page – it just looks a bit different here. The “Description” field within the “Menu Settings” box will contain the information that will display when you hover over the Issue title in the navigation dropdown.

For the “Featured Image” section, use the “Select Media” button to upload or select from the Library an image that illustrates the issue. This image will appear next to the issue title and description on the Issue listing page.

When you are finished entering content appropriate to the Issue page, click on the “Save” button at the bottom of the page.

You do not have the option to save the page as a draft or to un-publish as on other pages. Issues are all or nothing - you can either save or delete the issue page. The best way to handle this is to draft the issue content outside of the content manager and have it approved prior to creating the issue page. This allows you to create the issue page right away since the Draft feature is unavailable.

If your office should decide not to have the Issue page on the website, you should save the content outside of the content manager (i.e., in a Microsoft Word document), and delete the Issue page. This is perhaps the only time one should choose “Delete” over “Unpublish”.
