How to change who can log-in to your websites

 

Luggage uses the luggage_isushib feature to provide access control. This feature uses authentication from Shibboleth to provide a whitelist of users who are allowed to log into the site.

To change who is allowed to log in, use the "Change who may access this site" menu item:

News Articles

How-to create a news article on your website


Did someone in your department or laboratory just do something great? If your answer is "yes," then you want to create a news article.

Events

How to creating an event on your website


In this tutorial, we will learn how to create an event. The event content type includes a calendar so that site visitors can view events in a list. Visitors can also view events by day, week, month and year. I like to post event pages to the front page so users can easily see upcoming events.

Step 1: Creating Your Event


Using the menu bar at the top of the page, I hover over the "Content" tab and select "Event" from the "Add Content" menu (Note: your menu may look slightly different):

Projects

How to create a project on your website


The project content type on Luggage is useful for showcasing research that your department has done. Listing grants and showing project start and end dates are some of the features that the project content type provides. Read this tutorial for more information about creating a project page.

 

Step 1: Creating Your Project


Using the menu bar at the top of the page, hover over the "Content" tab and select "Event" from the "Add Content" menu (Note: your menu may look slightly different):

Page Order

Order settings are used minimally on Luggage. There are only a few features that allow you to change the order: menu items, category items, and project pages. This tutorial will teach you how page order can help you organize your projects.

The page order field can be found near the bottom of your project page editor. If I create a new project, this is the value of the page order field that I will see:

Category and Tags

Categories and tags are descriptive terms that help relate content. By creating excellent categories and tags, you can improve the searchability of your website. You can also help site visitors find what they are looking for and even what they didn't know they were looking for. This tutorial will explain characteristics of good category and tag terms and steps for how to create new terms.

 

Course Listings

Do you need to make a listing of the courses you are planning on offering? Our course content module allows for the addition of multiple course sections, course instructors, and course locations. This series of tutorials will lead you through the process of creating a course catalog for your Luggage site.

Before we get started, let's take a look at a finished course listing. Course listings are put into a table upon creation that allows the user to view the course identifier, title, year, and semester. Here is what our example course table looks like:

Course Locations

How to add a course location to any course


When creating a page for a course, the first thing that you should do is create the course location. Your course location will link the user to the course room's page on the Facilities Planning and Management website. You will see the course location in action when it is used to create a course section later on in this tutorial series.
