It allows you to clone a content type in one click without having to look at PHP code or perform complex manipulations. It's still a sandbox project at the moment but it will soon be available as an official Drupal module. I've built a few drupal sites, and always end up creating a content type for Home Page so that I can have a custom template for my home page content, however it seems excessive to have a.

Logging in to Drupal

  1. Go to your site’s home page, append /login to the url (ex: engr.washington.edu/login).
  2. Click the NetID button. This will take you to the NetID login page.
  3. Enter your information and log in.
  4. If you have not previously logged in:
    • Send a message to the appropriate webhelp email to set up a brief training, and provide you with access to Drupal.
    • Once you have access, you should be able to see a Manage bar at the top of your screen and, when you navigate to pages you can edit, tabs at the top of page content.

Editing basic pages

Read First! Before making any changes to pages, please review our Web style examples and Accessibility and usability page to get acquainted with our best practices.

  1. After logging in, navigate to the page you wish to edit. At the top of the content, just below the page title, you should see a series of tabs: “View Current,” “Edit Current,” and “Revision operations.” Editing tabs should appear in all basic pages, but will not appear in News articles. For help with editing news articles, please reach out to webhelp.
  2. Click on the Revisions tab to make sure you are on the latest revision. It is possible that changes you or someone else have made are not yet published. If there is a more recent revision, then click on its date to view it. If the revision was made by another user, please contact that user to determine if you should use that draft or edit the currently displayed version.
  3. Click on either Edit Latest (in revisions) or Edit Current (if there is no more recent revision). You will see a form with the information contained on the page. You will mostly want to edit the Body section. This section contains a Rich Text Editor that operates similarly to Word. We suggest that you make your edits using this tool.
  4. If you are comfortable with editing HTML, you can change to an HTML editor by clicking “Switch to plain text editor” underneath the Body window.
    Note: things won’t look right in the rich text editor, because Drupal 7 doesn’t take into account how we apply our own styles. The preview (button near Save button) is more accurate for previewing changes.

Important! File sizes and best practices

Unfortunately, files such as large, high-res photos and very large documents can slow down a page’s load time significantly. We encourage you to reach out to the web team to help you uploading your files, as they can guide you through the best practices that ensure our sites continue to run quickly and smoothly.

Uploading files to the web server

Drupal Duplicate PageDuplicateWordpress duplicate page

To make a new document or image available on the website, you need to put a copy of the file on the web server. We strongly recommend against linking to documents outside of our website, as they may be deleted or updated without your knowledge, leading to a broken link.

You can upload files to the website while logged using either of two ways:

A) Uploading files on a page using visual editor

  1. Below the Body area of a page, news item, or announcement, select the 'Switch to rich text editor' link to work with the WYSIWYG-like content editor.
  2. In the toolbar at the top of the 'Body' field, click the icon that looks like two mountains and the sun, then click on 'Browse Server' in the 'Image Properties' window that appears.
  3. Select the 'imgs' folder and choose the section to which you want to load the image.
  4. Click the 'Upload' button at the top left of the window, click 'Choose File,' then find the image on your computer and click 'Open.'
  5. Click the 'Upload' button just under 'Choose File.'
  6. The image will now be listed in the file list on the right. Double-click on it and click on 'OK' in the 'Image Properties' window.
  7. To get the url to copy into the html of a web page, double-click on the image name. The image will open in a new window. Copy the url starting with /file and through the file extension (.jpg, etc.)

B) Uploading files from the File browser tab of your Drupal user profile

Wordpress duplicate page
  1. Click your Drupal user ID in the black Drupal menu bar.
  2. Click 'View profile' in the sub-menu that appears.
  3. Click the File browser tab in the window that appears.
  4. Navigate to the correct folder in the navigation area on the left.
  5. Click the 'Upload' link in the gray menu bar.
  6. Follow the prompts to upload a file, then click the Upload button at the bottom of the tiny file selector window.
  7. To get the url to copy into the html of a web page, double-click on the image name. The image will open in a new window. Copy the url starting with /file and through the file extension (.jpg, etc.)

Summary option: Ignore this field, except on news.

Related content: Adds items to the sidebar for that specific page. To add to more than one page, use a block.

Revision log message field (Revision Information section): Write a brief summary of the changes you made. This helps future users, and your future self, determine the nature of the edits you have made.

Publishing process

Save your changes as a revision by clicking the Save button. Note that your changes won't show up on the live site until they are published. Depending on your Drupal permissions, you may not be able to publish your edits live. Send a message to the appropriate webhelp email to request that your edits are reviewed and published.

  • Save a new revision every time you make a major change. Enter a revision message so you can keep track of what you did.
  • Preview your change by selecting the “Create new revision and moderate” option under 'Revision Information.' Review the page to make sure the styles are correct before you publish.
  • There are two publish buttons to click; don’t forget the second publish.
  • You can compare revisions to see what changed. Select the two revisions and click Compare. Note that the difference shows only HTML.
  • It is a good practice to unpublish content rather than delete it. You might need to reference it later.
  • You can click the Revisions tab (next to Edit) to see previous revisions for the page.

Creating new pages

Although your Drupal permissions may allow you to create new pages, please work with the CoE web content specialists to have new pages created on the websites we maintain.

To have a new page created, send a message to the appropriate webhelp email and request a new page be created. You can share a Google Doc with the finalized content you would like to be included. A web specialist may reach back out with questions and suggestions or look to set up a meeting to discuss goals, structure, etc.

When you are requesting the page, please tell us the following:

Drupal Duplicate Page
  • The purpose of the page and who you expect/want to use it
  • Content in a shared Google Doc
  • Suggested location of the page on the website (ex: under the Students menu or under the Research Areas menu item)
  • Any preference for the url

About our theme

Drupal Duplicate Page

The Computing Services development team created a custom theme based on the UW Boundless design and is currently in the process of launching our Drupal 8 theme. The College has a slightly different theme from the departments.

Wordpress Duplicate Page

Our themes use the Bootstrap framework for responsive, mobile-friendly web pages and page layout based on a grid system. Some elements, particularly typography, are overwritten by the CoE theme and styles. Learn how to use our Bootstrap and CoE Boundless styles.
