After inserting an image onto your page/directory using the text editor; select the image and then right click on the image and select "Image Properties". A dialog box will appear. Select "Specify Size" and make sure "Keep Aspect Ratio" is selected. Edit the width or height. The image size will adjust itself proportionately as you change the width or height. Select "OK".
The page background color is not editable. However, you may create a 1x1, 100% wide table with the desired background color and place your content in it. Or you can contact OK.gov to discuss the possibility of applying a custom color scheme to your cms account.
If you are having to scroll to the right to see all of your page content while previewing a page, then that means there is an element on your page that has a fixed width and is wider than the browser window. To resolve this issue, edit the page or directory by clicking the Pencil button next to it. Go to the design area and review the sizes of the images and tables on that page. If you have an image or table on that page that is over 600 pixels wide, then you will want to reduce its size. You may want to consider resizing the table to a percentage rather than pixels. A percentage will allow the table expand and contract with the browser window. It is best to design your pages to fit the minimum monitor size: 800 pixels wide x 600 pixels high.
While editing a page in the text editor, if you click "Return" the cursor may go two lines down (also known as a new paragraph). If you want the cursor to go to the next line, hold down your "Shift" key while selecting "Return". This is also known as a "Half Return" or "Soft Return".
If your page or directory appears with a blank left navigation column, then edit the directory and select “No” on the “Do you want to change the left nav links?” at the bottom of “Page Info”. Then select “Save”.
Documents must be smaller than 20MB and end in an extension that is all lowercase (e.g. “.pdf” or “.doc”). The Document Manager also only allows the upload of the following file formats: doc, dot, txt, rtf, xls, pdf, ppt, ppsx .dwg, .dxf and zip. If you are still experiencing difficulties, please contact OK.gov for assistance.
Many times that can mean there is something wrong with the image's settings. Before you upload that image, you should know that images on the Internet have specific settings in order for them to appear. In order for images to operate properly on your Web site, the images color mode should be RGB and the resolution should be 72 dpi. To verify or alter these settings, you will need image editing software such as Adobe Photoshop. If you do not have this type of software, please contact OK.gov for assistance.
If you are experiencing slow response time with the text editor and possible computer "crashes", then you may be running the wrong version of the Java Plugin. Many PC's are set to perform "Auto Updates", which will automatically update your previously installed Java Plugin with the newest version. If this is the case, you will need to disable the Java plugin.
To link to documents in the right content area, you will need the URL (direct path) to the document to place in the URL field of the "Related Links" section. Step 1 - To retrieve the URL of the document, go to the "Document Manager" and right click on the magnifying glass (preview). Step 2 - Select "Copy Link Location" from the right-click menu. Step 3 - Go to the Site Manager and then select "Edit" (pencil) next to the page/directory you were working on. Step 4 - Go to the "Right Content " area and right click in the URL field of the "Related Links" and select "Paste". Step 5 - Finish setting up your link by giving it a title and then select "Save".
You may customize the text in the right content area by adding html. Below are some sample html commands that you may insert into the text area when editing the ‘Right Content’. Bold: The text I want bold is here in between these characters. Underline: The text I want underlined is here in between these characters. Italic: The text I want italicized is here in between these characters. Line Break: Place the following symbol anywhere you want a line break to appear:
