Content Tutorial

This tutorial will show you how to create a piece of content inside of the Rusnak Content Management System.

Step 1:

If you have not yet logged in to the Rusnak CMS system, log in to your website by going to the following URL.

http://www.yourwebsite.com/login

Step 2:

Go to your website's admin control panel, located at:

http://www.yourwebsite.com/admin

Step 3:

From the main admin screen, click on the "Manage Content" button.

Step 4:

The next page that loads shows you all of the content currently on your website.  You can click on "Edit Content" next to a piece of existing content to edit it.  To create a new piece of content, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on "Create New Content".

Step 5:

On the create new content screen, give your new piece of content a name by filling out the "Content Area Name" form field.

Step 6:

Use the WYSIWYG editor to create your content.  You can use the editor just like you would use a word processor like Microsoft Word.

Step 7:

When you are done creating your content, you can click on the blue "Save Content" button to save your content to your site's database.

Once you save your content, you should see a message at the top of the screen informing you that your content was saved.

Step 8:

Now that you have created a piece of content, you can add it to a page.  You will need to add your content to a page before you can see it on your website.  You can view the Page Tutorial in order to learn how to add your content to a page.

Using the WYSIWYG editor to format your content:

You can use the bar at the top of the WYSIWYG editor to format your content.

The Rusnak Content Management System uses CKEditor as the WYSIWYG editor for your site.  For more information on how to use the editor, please visit the CKEditor Documentation Website.

Tips and Tricks for Working with Content:

  • If you give a piece of content a name ending in .htm, .html, .css or .php you will get a code editor instead of the CKEditor when accessing the content from the content listing page.  If you are working with code, we recommend you use this method to edit your content as sometimes CKEditor can have problems editing code, even when using the "Source" button.
