Collection customizations

  • Log in at CONTENTdm Admin.
  • From the Collections tab, select Website to log into the Website Configuration Tool.
  • From the Editing Collection dropdown, select desired template.
  • Click Change.

Customizations must be applied to each collection individually at the collection level. However, if Your Institution's Template is selected when the collection is created, they will be automatically incorporated into the new collection. Be sure to save and publish your changes using Save and Publish.

The following minimal customizations are recommended:

  • Appearance > Header
    • Check box: Override global settings for this collection
    • Edit Header Text
    • Upload your institution's banner (recommended size: 150 x 1920)
    • Changes to background color, header text color and header icon color are optional but should be consistent.
    • PowerUser's tip: Once you've made these changes, save a screenshot to use as a guide in customizing future collections.
  • Appearance > Buttons
    • Optional; if changes are desired, check Override global settings for this collection.
  • Page Types > Landing Pages
    • Edit collection titles and descriptions here.
      • Home Page edits affect the KDL homepage.
      • Landing Page edits affect the collection level page.
  • Custom Page
    • More to come.
