Important Information for Office Content Editors

Offices that have materials that they believe should be displayed in existing or to-be-created parts of the website outside of About ALA  should enter a Track-It ticket.


You will have access to everything in the aboutala/offices area for those content types for which you have edit rights. To unpublish content, use that feature.

Deletion Rights

 To prevent difficulties since Drupal doesn’t have a recycle bin, deletion rights will be reserved to the site admins and ITTS. For now, if you need something deleted that’s under your control, put in a TrackIt ticket with the details.

How to Build URLS in the Offices' Area

URLs, naming conventions and folders are of critical importance. Drupal does not have a folder structure but we have mocked up structures to bring over the existing URLs. When making a new page in the offices' area, uncheck the auto-URL feature as shown in training, and create a URL that starts with your office’s acronym or name as shown in the existing file structures. This will put it in your area, and make it possible for you to locate it when needed. Drupal does not allow duplicate file names, so it is critical that you not create files with easily confused names. Searching for your materials in Drupal to make edits may prove confusing. Log in, locate published materials on the website and then edit them.
