CMS Articles

The CMS (Content Management System) Articles are part of the organization tools which means that they are visible to all members from the organization portal. The CMS allows you to feed your internal and external (public) portals with "cold" content consisting of text, images, videos, files, etc...

To access the management of CMS articles, the manager goes to the tab "CMS articles" in the "tools" section of the management pages.
NB: a manager can delegate the management of CMS articles to members by setting up a role with a specific right.

Create a CMS article

To "Create a new article", click on the green button on the top right, then define a title, a layout type (choose the "Article" layout by default) and a parent article.
If this is your first article, then it will have "no parent" and will be your home article for the internal portal.

Learn more about the FAQ layout of articles.

After clicking on "Create", you are directly redirected to the editing space of your CMS article. This one is entirely customizable thanks to several functionalities detailed below:

(1) Add a banner
(2) Add/modify a title
(3) Customize your text with formatting, links, images ...
(4) Add a column on the right of your article with content
(5) Change the language (see article Multilingual content), the position of the article in the tree structure, save and publish your article.
(6) Change the layout, display sub-articles (list or thumbnails), add tags, add a logo, change the title color
(7) Attach files

Once the article has been created, it should be saved to save the changes, then published to make it visible on the portal. Indeed, if the article is in "draft" mode, it will not be visible on the portal.

If it is your first article, it will be your welcome article on the portal. This article is generally intended to present the purpose of your organization. It will then be necessary to define it as such when you leave the editing mode. To do this, click on the three small dots at the end of the article, then on "Define as home page of the internal portal" (see screenshot below).

Managing the tree structure of your articles

Once on the CMS management page, the list of all articles is displayed.

From this page it is possible to order these articles in a very agile way. Via the 3 small dots, it is possible to edit an article, to create sub-articles to this parent article, to publish or not to publish an article, to change its parent and to define it as the homepage of the internal or external portal (See article Public portal).

In order to create a new section, it will be necessary to attach the new article to the home page of the portal. This new article will then become the "parent article" of the sub-articles dedicated to this theme.
Consequently, the menus will be displayed according to the tree structure defined for the user.

Tip: if your parent articles (or topics) are only intended to group together sub-articles on a given theme but do not constitute an article in themselves, we suggest that you use the display of sub-articles "as thumbnails under the article".

Share a CMS article in a sphere

As mentioned in the preamble, the CMS article is "cold" content. However, it is possible to share these articles within the spheres in two ways:

From the publication space, go to the Markdown level and click on the "insert a link to an article" button

From the CMS article itself, click on the "share in a sphere" arrow button
