Have you ever been looking at something on the front-end of your uConnect platform, but not been sure how to find the content on the back end to edit? In this article we’ll be sharing a quick and easy trick you can use to always know whether you’re looking at a Community, a Custom Page, a Resource, etc.
There are a variety of ways you can present content on your uConnect platform depending on the type of information you’re looking to display. If you haven’t already learned about the different ways, check out this article!
From the front-end, you can tell from the URL of the page how to locate the same information in the uConnect dashboard. As you navigate through the platform and enter new pages, the URL changes depending on the content type that was used to display the information on the page you’re on. Here are the different scenarios:
1. Community page: On a Community page, the URL of the page will change to: “https://demo.uconnect.com/channels/demo-community”. All pages created through Manage>Communities will contain /channels/ in their URL.
2. Custom Page: On a custom page, the URL of the page will change to include the title of the page directly after the landing page URL. Here’s an example: “https://demo.uconnect.com/schedule-an-appoitment”. In this case, the title of the custom page is Schedule an Appointment.
3. Resources: On a resource page, the URL of the page will change to include /resources. An example is: “https://demo.uconnect.com/resources/”
4. Jobs: On a job posting page, the URL of the page will change to include /jobs. An example is: “https://demo.uconnect.com/jobs/”
5. Blogs: On blog posts, the URL of the page will change to include /blogs. An example is: “https://demo.uconnect.com/blogs/”
6. Content Category page: On a Content category page, the URL of the page will change to include the type of content, category, and then the title of the content category tag. An example is: “https://demo.uconnect.com/jobs/category/full-time”
The same URL logic will follow for rest of the content types listed in the backend of your platform underneath the “Publish” section - like jobs, resources, and blogs, employers, people, events, classes, organizations, and videos will all also indicate the type of content they are within the page URL on the front-end.
