Editing pages: Checking in and checking out

While logged in and on the desired page, if you want to edit that page you will need to “check out” that page.

To check out, select the light bulb icon, located next to the publish button in the upper-right corner of the page.

You may visit OMNI support for comprehensive training on checking in and checking out. Become familiar with the icons that indicate page status.

Remember to check out
It is a good habit to check out after each editing session, in case another editor needs to access the page.

When you click on the green Main Region button, the region will open and you may use your What You See is What You Get (WYSIWYG) toolbar to make changes to the page.

Learn more about editing your existing page.

Using OMNI’s JustEdit WYSIWYG toolbar

Review the JustEdit WYSIWYG toolbar. You may not see all options featured. Some options are only available to web administrators.


Publishing your page

Changes made to your webpages are done on a staging server. The live website exists on the production server. Pages, files and other content changes must be published to the live server to appear on your live site. To do this, click on the green publish button to the right of the light bulb.

Omni CMS provides a video and detailed guide to publishing pages.

Pro Tip
When you publish, you will be prompted to add a version description if you choose. A description will help you, or others, to know what change(s) have been made to the page.
