The Basics

Log in
After gaining access to Urban Planet, go to the page you have access to and add /admin to the site URL. Then login using your email address (john.doe@mpls.k12.mn.us) and your Urban Planet generated password.

Find a page
When someone sends you a URL and they are asking for you to update it, you're going to want to visit that site first. Once that site is open, you'll see the path to which it is located on the top of the page in the form of (Home > About > Strategic Projects > Integration > 2015-17 Plan). When you see this, it's easy to track down the page by copying and pasting the path into a word doc to refer to when looking for it on the back-end of the site. 

Edit a page
Once you've located the page you want to edit and click on the edit button, feel free to edit the page manually by typing and modifying your content with the editting tools above or by copying and pasting content as plain text. Note: If entry mistakes are made, press (command + z) on a Mac or (control + z) on a Windows in order to undo things. Also, once you click on save, the page becomes finalized and recovering prevous versions of that page are erased.

Add a rotator
Once you've finalized your content and received an image that's 6"x4" you're ready to add a rotator. Follow along in order to properly add a rotator. Note: If a rotator doesn't display correctly it likely is an issue with the content you've added. To fix this first turn the rotator off and take two courses of action: 1) The easiest fix is to reinsert your content by copying and pasting the content as plain text again. 2) If that doesn't work, click on the source button and investigate the HTML code for irregularities compared to plain text you added and then delet unneccessary HTML tags or commands.

Add a page
To add a page you must first find the area in which you're looking to add a page within a site's hierarchy on the left-hand side. Once your location has been determined you're ready to add a page.

Add a sidebar + document
When you're in the midst of editing a page you have the option to add assets like sidebars, documents and more on the left-side of the page. And for our sake we'll be focusing on adding a sidebar and a document to a page.
