Manage Content

Manage content

An example of the Manage All Content page.

The Manage Content section of your site provides a easy way for you to view and manage your content through bulk operations. The Manage All Content page incorporates content from all content types on your site into a single table.  

When a new feature is added to your site, you can manage content type-specific pages from the Manage Content by Type menu in the right sidebar. Each content-type specific page provides options which are appropriate for that content type. To learn more about using a content type-specific page, view the help page for that content type.

Filtering content

The filters above the table allow you to narrow the content selection in the table. On the Manage All Content page you can filter by TitleType, Published status, or Author. To filter by title simply enter all or part of the content title. To filter by type, click on the arrow and select a content type. Content types vary by site. To filter by published status, click on the arrow and select published or unpublished. To filter by author, start typing the author's Drupal username and the field will auto-populate.  Select the desired author name. click the Apply button to filter content and the Reset button to display all content.

Sorting content

You can sort content by clicking on active column headers. On the Manage All Content page these headers are: Title, Type, Published, Updated Date, and Author. Once you have found what you are looking for, you can simply edit, delete, or view the item by clicking on the appropriate links.

Using bulk operations

Bulk operations work best on content type-specific pages. Bulk operations allow you to select several items and make the same change for each item.

To publish several items, for example:

  1. Click the checkboxes next  to each item you want to publish.
  2. Click the Choose an operation arrow.
  3. Select Publish.
  4. Click Execute.
  5. On the confirmation page select Confirm.
