    Content Guidelines

    • As with all sections in people listings, a proper heading will automatically appear on the page above the text you enter into it.  If the information that you're adding is long and complex enough to need headings within it, please use a level three (H3) heading when breaking information up into distinct blocks.   Headings can be accessed from the drop down menu showing "Paragraph" below.  

    • Content added here should be text-based.  Please consult with the Maxwell Communications office (maxcomms@syr.edu) if you would like your faculty page to include extra photos, audio or video files.  

    • If linking to content outside of the Maxwell School's web site please have the links open up in a new window.  

    • Consult the detailed tutorial on using the Sitefinity text editor for more instructions including how to add hyperlinks (link to come).
