KUPU Editor Tutorial
This tutorial is designed to show staff members how to use the KUPU editor to build new webpages and edit existing webpages in a Plone Content Management System website.
Specific Members are given different levels of permission to perform specific actions. The main roles are:
Anonymous: Can view the website.
Member: A person who has joined the website and been given a user name and password.
Content Owner/Author: Is a member who has permission to submit content to a folder(s) in the website.
Content Reviewer: Can approve a content owners contribution to be published on the website.
Administrator: Can do all the above plus create new users and roles.
The Work Flow
A Content Owner creates the content.
They submit it to a Reviewer.
The Reviewer checks the content, spelling, grammar and appearance.
It is not the Reviewers responsibility to correct the work, only to inspect it.
If it is up to standard it appears on the website.
If it is not it is referred back to the Content Owner for correction.
If you have permission to edit or add content to the website you will be able to see the contents, views and edit tabs. You will also see the add item link.
The contents view shows you the contents of a folder.
You can copy, cut, rename, delete or change state of an item by ticking the relevant checkbox and using the options at the bottom of the page. Then click OK.
The view tab shows you what an item will look like.
The edit tab allows you to edit an item and will open the KUPU editor.
How to add a new item.
A new item could be a folder, an image, a file or a page.
To insert a new page in a folder click on add item > add page.
You will be asked to supply a title for the page and of course some content (body text.)
It is mandatory to supply a title for all items you add. Mandatory items are marked with a red square.
Then click save, and you will be in view mode.
To edit the page
Click edit, and you will see the KUPU editor.
(Depending on your permissions you may have to select make private from the states options before you can edit the page.)
You will recognise most of the tools, if you mouse over the icons you will see what each one does.
To make a page heading highlight the text to be formatted and select heading from the dropdown menu. Then save the page.
You can type or paste content into the body text panel.
If you are copying from a MS Word document you must first paste the text into Notepad (Start > Programs > Accessories > Notepad). This removes the Word formatting. Then copy from Notepad and paste into your webpage where you can use KUPU to format the text.
It is important to follow this procedure.
To insert an image
Place your cursor where you want to insert the image. Click the insert image icon and select an existing image or upload one from your PC. Click OK.
In this example I am inserting an image called nurse.jpg from my computer.
To insert a table
Click the insert table icon and specify how many rows and columns you need. Click add table. Save to view your page.
To insert an external link
Click the external link icon and type in the link address.
You can preview the link by clicking preview.
Click OK. Save to view.
To insert an internal link
Click the internal link icon and select the folder and file to insert. This could be another webpage or an MS office file.
(To upload an Office file click add item > file.)
Click OK, save to view.
To insert an Email address
Highlight the text to be linked to the email address, click the external link icon and type mailto:email@example.com
Click preview to test or OK.
Publishing your page
You can submit your page for publishing by selecting submit from the state options in the view mode.
A Reviewer will publish it if it is up to standard. (See the Reviewers Tutorial for details of required standards.)
If you are a Reviewer you can publish the page.
You can also make your published page private by using these options.
