Module Settings

Module Settings are located in the Settings drop down menu to the right of the Edit option in each module’s content pane. Also in this drop down is Help related to the module, the option to Delete the module, and the ability to Refresh the module. Below, we will cover the Settings portion for modules and what can be completed in this area.

Module Settings Tab:

Here you can change the Module’s Title, Insert a Header or Footer, add a Start/End Date, and see what pages the Module has been copied to.

Page Settings Tab:

Here you can change the alignment of the content within the module, apply a background color or border, select to display the container (essentially adding another border) and select what type of module container you wish to use. You also have the option to move the module (this does not copy, it actually physically move the module).

Export Content:

Using Settings allows you to export raw data from a module and place it in a new module. This is much like copying a module; however the two modules can be edited independently of one another, allowing you to have 2 similar but different modules. Below we outline the steps needed to export module content.

  1. Switch to the page you wish to export the module from. Make sure you are in Edit mode by clicking Edit Page in the top right.
  2. In the module pane, click the Settings button op_mod_set_8.jpg and select Export Content from the drop down menu.
  3. Click Export to prompt the system to refresh your Folders. Then, using the <None Specified> Folder drop down menu, select the folder you wish to export to.

  4. Designate a File Name for your exported file. This defaults to the module type if no new name is specified.
  5. Click Export again to Export your modules as an XML file to the specified Folder.

Import Content:

Once you have exported a module’s raw data as an XML file, you can import that file into a new module. Please note: You MUST have created a module of the matching type (HTML, Registration, etc.) on the new page in order to import the content. Follow the steps below to import module content into a fresh module of the same type.

  1. Switch to the page you wish to import the module to. Make sure you are in Edit mode by clicking Edit Page in the top right.
  2. In the module pane, click the Settings button op_mod_set_8.jpg and select Import Content from the drop down menu.
  3. Click Import to prompt the system to refresh your Folders. Then, using the <None Specified> Folder drop down menu, select the folder you wish to import from.
    • Please note, at this time a red banner warning will appear reading “The module content does not have a valid XML structure”, ignore this message.

  1. Select the file you previously exported from the File drop down now reading <None Specified>.
  2. Click Import again to import the raw XML content from your other module.
  3. At this time, you will have two modules with similar content inside them; however you can hover over the Pencil icon op_mod_set_7.jpg associated with the module to configure it separately from the original module.
