Instructions for Editing Webpages in OmniUpdate

To update, edit, and maintain the Skyline College websites, we use a content management system called OmniUpdate Campus. To be able to edit webpages, you need to log in with the correct username and password for that particular site.

An easy way to add formatting to your content is to copy and paste any of the content on this site into OmniUpdate in Editing mode. Then highlight what you pasted and type in your content. You can retain the formatting that way. We do have some style constraints so that each website stays recognizable as a member of the Skyline College site.

How to use this site:

  • These webpages demonstrate all the formatting you can copy for your site.
  • From your browser, copy any section from these demo webpages and paste into OmniUpdate in Editing mode.
  • Then highlight what you pasted and type in your content. Save and publish.
  • The formatting is retained.

Step # Detailed Instructions
1 In OmniUpdate, make sure you have open the page you want to add formatting to and have clicked the Edit button to get into Editing mode.
2 In a new tab or window, browse in Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Chrome browsers to the Skyline College page you want.
3 Then, copy the section of interest by starting on the line before the section you want and continuing to the line after. This ensures you have captured all of the formatting.
4 Go to the Omni page being edited and paste.
5 Highlight the pasted text and add the new text you want to replace the highlighted text. It should have the same formatting.
6 If you have trouble, undo (shortcut is Control key + 'Z') and just highlight within the pasted text. Then replace with your new text and delete any remaining characters of the previously pasted text.
