Update a page

There are three steps to updating a page on mun.ca using Site Builder:
      1. Find the page
      2. Make the edits
      3. Save your changes
1. Find the page

The quickest way to find the page is to scroll to the bottom of that published page and click the last updated date, which looks like this:

the last updated link

Clicking on the date will open up the page in Site Builder in a new tab.


If you see this error message when you click on the last updated date, it means you do not have permission to edit the content on this page. You must have permission to edit the page before you can proceed.

Another way to find the page is to locate it within Site Builder.

It helps to examine the URL of the page you want to edit. For example: http://www.mun.ca/marcomm/resources/index.php indicates that you're looking for a page called "index" in a folder called "resources" on the Marcomm website.

Once in Site Builder, click "content" tab at the top of your page.

Then, locate the folder that contains the page you want to edit and click the folder.
A red arrow will appear beside the folder:

Scroll down to the "Published Content" box,
which will list all pages and files in the folder you selected. 

Locate the page you want to edit, and click the pencil-and-paper "edit page" icon pictured below:

Note: if you cannot see the edit page icon, it means you do not have permission to edit this page. You must ask a local admin to grant you this permission, orif you are a lcoal admin, you can grant yourself the permission. 

2. Make edits

You've found the page, now you need to make changes.

Once you have selected a page to edit, you will see the screen below. Using the WYSIWYG editor, you can edit the content on your page. 

Once you have finished editing, be sure to save changes.

3. Save changes

To save a page, we recommend publishing the page to your site.

  • Using the "Save Draft" feature is not recommended, as sometimes draft pages lock and prevent you from editing them. Check out the Troubleshooting section for more information on what to do if your Draft pages lock.
    • It is recommended that you construct your content in a program such as Microsoft Word, and then move it into your page.
  • When you publish a page, if you do not link it to a menu, the general public will not be able to find it unless they know the link, or find it via a search engine. This allows you to make edits in a semi-private environment.
  • Once you've updated a page, remember to add meta elements so search engines will be able to find your page.
  • Deleting pages is also possible on Site Builder, but we advise caution when deleting pages; once they're gone, they're gone.
