Exporting Wordpress Content

Jun 13, 2016 by Sara Rubenstein

Just a quick reminder! In the past you have been able to export your own Wordpress content. Due to changes in the administration settings, however, now only a member of the web team will be able to export your website content. What does this mean for you?  Instead of exporting your content, all you need to do is submit a work request form indicating you want your website's content exported and a member of the web team will send you an email shortly with a pdf attached.

Need To Embed A Video? Here's How!

Jun 13, 2016 by Sara Rubenstein

Embedding a video in your org's website can seem daunting or just downright confusing, so the Web Development created a quick guide to show you how. ***In OrgSync, you can't directly upload videos into the page editor, the video must be uploaded somewhere else (e.g. Youtube, Vimeo, etc.). So for the purpose of this guide, we will use Youtube as an example, but the process is the same for most video-uploading sites.  1. Go to the website page your video is posted on. 2. Beneath the video,...
