Provision Teacher Site (Personal Site)
Teachers will learn how to provision their personal website. We'll also discuss the difference between a class website (having multiple owners) and a personal/teacher website (having a single owner).
How do I provision my website?
- While on the dashboard go to your account name that is located in the upper right-hand corner, click and select Personal Sites in the drop-down menu.
- On the new screen, click Add Site.
- Enter the name of the site in the Name field, press Tab which will automatically fill out the slug field located.
- Select the school that your site will be under so it inherits the theme of that school in the Container field.
- Finally below that is Model, click and select Teacher Model.
- Click Create and you will be taken to your new personal site.
What is a container?
A container is a collection of styles for a site(s). Sometimes there are different ones for each of the schools in a district depending on the branding of the schools. A container is used to keep any pages that would be included in a school’s using the same colors and styles that have been set up.
What is a model?
A model can be thought of as a template for your website. It tells Campus Suite what settings and pages your website should initially have.
I provisioned a new personal site but it doesn’t look like the others?
Did you remember to select the correct container and model. Usually, if a new personal website does not match others is because an incorrect option in one of those has been chosen.
How do I see a listing of my personal website(s)?
While on the dashboard go to your account name that is located in the upper right-hand corner, click and select Personal Sites in the drop-down menu. This will take you to a screen showing all of your personal websites.
How do I see a delete my personal website(s)?
To delete your personal site go to the dashboard, click on your account name that is located in the upper right-hand corner and select Personal Sites in the drop-down menu. This will take you to a screen showing all of your personal websites, there click on Delete Website in the section for the personal site that you would like to delete. Please remember once a personal site is deleted it cannot be recovered and will need to be manually rebuilt.
Note: While you can create more than one personal site, you can only link one to your profile.
