Resources

Last edited 9/24/2020
The Resources section is a digital repository of files that you can assign to pages or use as direct links anywhere on the web. Documents can be managed within the page editor as well as in the Resources section of the website admin interface.

This page addresses the Resources section.

Resource features for admins include:

  • Organize resources into internal categories.
  • Search your master list of resources quickly.
  • Restore previously deleted resources.
  • Replace a current file and all existing links to that resource will automatically direct to the new file.
  • Assign individual documents from any category* to pages.
  • Add any resource to any page or to multiple pages.
  • Manually link to resources within content on your Tentaroo site or on other websites, social media accounts, emails, etc.
  • Embed Image Files - use resource links in your website content.
  • Page Editor Resources - search, assign, add, edit, or delete resources from within the page editor.
  • Menus - link to a resource from a menu item.

*Prior to the launch of the new CMS (Website) admin interface, resource categories were assigned as a whole to pages and all documents would appear on the page. Now, individual documents are assigned to a page and can be chosen from multiple categories. Adding a new resource to a category will, therefore, not automatically add that resource to your page. See Page Resources to learn about assigning resources to a page.

Access Resources

  1. From the Admin menu on the left, select Websites, then click on your site or minisite.
  2. Go to Resources in the blue bar at the top. These are the initial steps for all other instructions on this page.

Manage Categories

Categories are helpful for internal organization of your documents and are not displayed to the public. You can add, rename, or remove categories as needed.

  • Click on the Categories tab.
  • Click the green NEW button to add a category.
  • Search for a category using the Search function. Click the Show Deleted toggle to include deleted categories, which can then be restored. When a category is deleted, files will still be available but you will be prompted to update the resource category next time you edit them.
  • Quickly delete a category using the trash can icon.
  • Edit a category using the pencil icon. You can rename or delete a category here.
