In this section we will learn how to use the LEVERADE platform to generate content in the public part of your web page, such as news, videos or albums, and also how to manage the site such as edit menus and sections or introduce new widgets.
In this last session, we need to go to the Publish section. This is where you can publish and update all the information on your web page. In LEVERADE, we have two types of content: Static and Dynamic.
Static content relates to the structure of your webpage and its design; the elements that can be activated or deactivated (widgets, carousels, social networks). It is static because it is not content that changes daily and it influences the general look of the page.
In “My domain’, you can configure the static content. The first section is “Personalisation”, in which you can set up the page, choose templates and start editing the look of your webpage. Each template lets you add at least one header image and one background image. This is where you set up your domain and choose a favicon.
In Sections, you can create new navigation menus with any name you like and even group them together. You can also make it so that clicking on a menu redirects to an external site or an internal page of your website. The numbers of these sections let you put the menus in a specific order, from left to right and from top to bottom.
Once you click on “Add Section”, you can edit the name of the section and its position in the web menu.
Choosing the visibility of the section is very important and there are three ways to do this: Draft, Visible and Hidden.
Draft: only you can see this; a section or subsection that is not published
Visible: everyone can see this; sections that are already published and/or added to a menu
Hidden: only people who have the link can see this; a section that is published but not public to everyone.
Furthermore, we also have to select in which menu we want the section to be included: Top or Main.
Normally, the Top menu is set up more like a business menu, for setting up teams, for committees and for courses, while the main menu is geared towards the important information of the team: competitions, news, about, etc.
To set up a drop-down menu, it’s as simple as marking the option “Group this section in a menu” and in “Menu name”, fill in the same name for all of them (which will be the name shown on the main menu):
In the section “Webpage configuration”, you can activate or deactivate all the widgets and elements of the webpage: add the team’s social networks, upload or delete images from the carousel (and add a link to the image), add buttons to the auxiliary menu or include sponsor images in the footer, etc.
We recommend that you add all the widgets you want and add all the ones that seem the most relevant to your webpage.
It’s also possible to set up an auxiliary menu, which allows us to quickly show information such as delegations or disciplines:
To set it up, we need to add the image, the name, the outbound link and the order in which they will be shown.
For the footer, we have a similar option that is set up in the same way and which allows us to add sponsors or collaborating institutions:
Dynamic content is generated daily and comes in the form of news, photos and videos. To create this content we need to go to the “Publications” section and from there we can create news items, photo albums and add videos.
Creating all types of dynamic content follows a very similar process, so we will focus on creating news items.
First, we add all the tags that we can add to make the web content look much more organised and accessible for the people who visit the webpage.
These publications can be tagged to competitions or disciplines and you can also create personalised tags in “Add tags”. When we tag a video to a match, it will be shown on the homepage so that, for example, the match can be shown live from there:
These news items can also be programmed to publish automatically at an assigned date and time.
