Quick Guide to Editing Text in Modern Campus CMS

To make your text edits, you will use the WYSIWYG Editor (What You See Is What You Get) in Modern Campus CMS. The WYSIWYG Editor is very similar to a word processor, allowing for more familiarity and intuitive web editing.

  1. Use DirectEdit to enter the Modern Campus CMS Page view of the page you wish to edit
  2. Check Out The Page
    You can do so by clicking the light bulb icon from the Page Actions Toolbar. If you see a red padlock icon instead of a light bulb, the page is checked out by someone else and you will not be able to edit the page. Learn More About Checking Out Pages.
  3. Click Edit from the Page Actions Toolbar
  4. Click on the Green Button that says “Main Content” with a pencil icon
  5. Begin Making Your Text Edits inside the WYSIWYG Editor
    Once inside the WYSIWYG Editor, all of the text on your page will become editable. You can delete words, change them and add new information as needed. If you are changing or adding text to your pages, be sure to review the Writing Style Guide to make sure you are following the grammar and usage guidelines of the college.

    Use the following resources to learn more about working inside of the WYSIWYG Editor and for help with editing your page(s).
