WHAT IS AN ASSET? repeat-alt icon

Reusable content is convenient when working with multiple pages that require the exact same information.

  • Assets allow users to create and manage reusable content in one location, and then place that content on an unlimited number of pages. This allows content to be created and edited in one place, and populated automatically on all subscribing pages.
  • Assets make it easy and convenient to update common content that appear across multiple pages. 
  • In order to insert an Asset into a page or editable region, it must first be created within OU Campus.

How to Insert an Asset

 1. Click on the "Insert/Edit Asset" button on the toolbar.

NOTE: Many assets listed do not currently work in OU Campus.  If there is an asset that you need, or an asset that is currently being used on your pages that does not work, submit a Web Request Form for assistance.

Assets cannot be edited in Edit Mode

Once inserted onto a page, the asset cannot be edited or viewed in "Edit Mode".  

A bar with the asset's name and "cannot be shown in WYSIWYG" will appear after inserted in Edit mode.
