How to Edit the Sidebar Content

In addition to videos and color bars, you are able to add body content (text and images) to the ride sidebar of your department's homepage. This is a good place to include short announcements or showcase photos, social media links, etc.

Step One: Navigating to the Department Homepage in Cascade

Each department’s homepage is associated to an index page in Cascade. Look for the index page contained within your department's folder.

Ex. To edit the economics homepage, select the page called "index" under the economics folder. Most department folders are located under the units folder.


Step Two: Editing the Right Sidebar of the Index Page

Once you’ve selected the page called index, click “Edit” in the top-right of your screen to begin making changes to the homepage.

A new editing window will appear. Under "select-section-to-edit," choose "right-sidebar."

Step Three: Selecting “Content”

Navigate to the section called "Content." Use the text editor to format your content and add pictures, links, or other media.

Step Four: Publish the Page

When you finish editing, click "Save & Preview" in the top-right of your editing window, then "Submit" and "Publish."

Step Five: Publishing the Parent Folder

Remember to re-publish the parent folder in order to make the links visible in the navigation of all the pages. To do this, navigate back to the parent folder and click "Publish"
