Over the last months, the web team made a few adjustments to make it easier to add program resources, peer reviewed content, and online events. EESC also continues to work on finalizing design and support tools for the website. Here’s a look at what is new and what is on the way.
Instead of keeping the default alphabetical order, you can now rearrange program resources in the Program Resource List. When you see the list you want to reorder, click on the pencil icon that appears next to the section heading and select “reorder items”. This takes you to a screen where you can drag the program resources up or down on the page. More is explained in the managing program content and 4-H guides.
When adding new content, some program area leaders have asked for articles to be peer reviewed. You can now check the box and add the reviewer’s name in “Step 3: Author and Publishing Information” when entering educational content.
If you are hosting a virtual event or webinar, you can now select “online only” as the location.
We are also working on a design fix for how to display all events chronologically but have local events more distinct on the main landing pages.
County Page Design
Later this month you’ll have access to the county page design features and ways to highlight focus areas in your county that we mentioned in an earlier blog. We’ll send more details when it gets closer to rolling out.
Program Page Design
In December we released new design features for the participatory program pages, and details on how to apply these tools are in the managing program content and 4-H guides. Since this is new, we are working on video tutorials to walk you through how to spruce up your pages.
A new searchable guide full of how-to instructions and tips for entering and updating information on the website will replace the current working drafts on the training page. We will let all web group leaders know when it is released.
On the OSU Extension employee intranet, the last pages are being revised for ETCU Tech Help, EESC, and 4-H employee resources, and will soon be available.
If you have a question or want to check in on the status of other changes, please reach out to us through the web support form.
