Site Attribute Manager

Manage Attributes Help

The SubSite Attribute Manager enables Editors to create or edit content attributes.

Heading Description
Label This is the name that editors and users will see.
Type The attribute can be one of 5 different types: Text Field, Text Area, Checkbox, Radio, or Selectbox. Each is described below.
Value For Text Field and Text Area, the value that you define will become the default text that is displayed in the field. For the remaining types, the values you give will be displayed next to a button or checkbox. For multiple checkbox, selectbox, or radio values to appear, simply type in one value per line into the Value text area.
Searchable Selecting this checkbox allows you to create an attribute that will show up in searches performed by users of the site.

Attribute Types Description
Text Field A simple text box for short text inserts.
Text Area A much larger text box that can be used for more detailed text descriptions.
Checkbox A checkbox control enables multiple selections from a group of values.
Radio A radio button control that enables a single selection from a group of values.
Selectbox Much like a radio button control, the selectbox control enables single selection from a group of values; however, selectboxes utilize a drop-down menu for selection.

Link Types

Link Types are a special kind of attribute, that when used in conjunction with the "Click Tracking" site option, allow you to control which type of links receive a warning stating that the user is leaving the site.

Here's an example of how to create a Link Type that allows you to stop the warnings for internal title and image links (to pages in your own site).

Start by clicking the "Create Attribute" link. Next, you'll want to give your new attribute a label of "LinkType" (all one word without the quotes) and it should also be a checkbox. As for the value, you'll want to give it a name that's meaningful. For this example, we'll set the value to "Internal Link". The Searchable checkbox is optional, you can just leave it unchecked if you'd like. Now click the "Create" button, and you'll now see that you have a LinkType called "Internal Link"

The next step is to go to a page that contains a content item with either a title or image link to another page in the site. Once you've found such a page, click the content object's "Edit" button (the pencil icon). Just below the Description in the "Title and Text" section you'll see your new LinkType. Put a checkmark next to "Internal Link" and click the Update button at the bottom of the page.

Now any time a user visits that page and click on the Title or Image link, their click will be tracked, but they won't receive that annoying warning message.
