Adding content in the USAID RM portal is done placefully, which is to say that you must navigate to the section of the portal that you wish the new content to reside before you use the Add New drop-down menu. You can of course cut, copy, and paste content items from one section to another if necessary.

Content Types

In the portal, you can use a number of Content Types to post certain kinds of content. For example, to upload an image you must use the Image content type. Below is a list of the available content types in order of their appearance, and what each are used for:

Page

A Page is one of the most simple content types available. Use Page to create a web page.

File

A File is any binary file you wish to upload with the intent that it can be downloaded by your site visitors. Common examples are PDFs, Word Documents, and spreadsheets.

Folder

Folders work much like they do on your computer. You can use folders to organize your content.

Collection

Collections are used to group and display content based on a set of criteria which you can set. Collections work much like a query does in a database.

Image

The Image content type is used for uploading image files (JPG, GIF, PNG) so that you can insert them into your webpages, news, or other page-like content types.

Link

The Link content type is often used to include a link to an external website in Navigation and other specialized uses.

News Item

A News Item is specifically for posting news. You can also attach a thumbnail image to a News Item, which then appears in folder summary views next to the summary of the News Item.

Event

An Event is a special page-like content type specifically for posting information about a group event (such as a workshop or meeting). This content type has a function which allows the group members to add the event to their desktop calendar with either the iCal or vCal standard. This includes applications such as: Google Calendar, Outlook, Sunbird and others.
