Tips for Manage Content

Asset Best Practices *

1. Give Assets unique names! 

2. Provide commonly used Assets for everyone's use. See RILINK Managed Widgets & Videos.

3. Map whenever possible to make updates easy.

4. Request help with CSS to change how an asset looks.

Content may be reused at the Content Type (except Rich Text), Box, Page, and Guide levels.  Additionally, Guides may be reused at the Community level. Please refer to the RILINK Schools LibGuides CMS Users Guide for more information.
