Creating the Edit in Cascade bookmark

  3. For the URL, copy and paste the code below:
javascript:if( typeof $('meta[name=id]').attr("content") !== "undefined" ){window.open("https://cascade.fiu.edu/entity/open.act?action=edit&type=page&id="+$(%27meta[name=id]%27).attr("content"));}

Once you're done, click save. Your new bookmark will appear on your bookmarks bar in your browser.

Happy editing!

Accessible video embed

You can insert videos in any content area with a WYSIWYG editor. Use the embed code for YouTube, Vimeo or other online player and stick it inside this code:

<div class="flex-video widescreen vimeo">
   <!-- Insert video embed code here -->
</div>

The following code is used to give your video a title. This allows for this element on the page to become accessible. Right after the text that says <iframe paste the following code:

title=" VIDEO TITLE"

Replace the uppercase text with a descriptive title of the video. A complete video embed code will look like this:

<div class="flex-video widescreen vimeo">
   <iframe title="FIU commercial 2018" width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/O6DBjrWDZr4" allowfullscreen loading="lazy"></iframe>
</div>

Call to action (CTA) code

If you want to include a call to action link without using the call to action content area, you can use the code below to create the same effect on the link text.

<p>
<a class="cta-link-primary" href="INSERT URL HERE">INSERT CTA TEXT HERE</a>
</p>

The final result will look like this:

Buy the thing

Social media links
