LibGuides Tips & Tricks for Librarians: Moving Stuff Around

This guide is intended for the authors of libguides, not the general users of the content.

Changing the order of the tabs

When you add a new page, the new tab automatically displays as the last one. If you want to move the top level tabs around, select "Reorder Pages" from the drop-down list under Add/Edit Pages in the Command Bar. Drag and drop the page to the desired position.

Regrouping the tabs and subtabs

When you create a new page you have the option in the process of positioning it as a subpage. If you don't make that decision until after the various pages exist independent of each other, you can shuffle them around to establish whatever pecking order you prefer.

Select "Move Tabs/Subtabs" from the drop-down list under Add/Edit Pages in the Command Bar.

Moving boxes around on a page

If you want to change the position of a box on a page, either to a different column or to a different rank within a column:

  • select "Reorder Boxes on This Page" from the drop-down list under Add/Edit Pages in the Command Bar
  • wait a few seconds after the text appears for the page to completely load
  • drag the box to the new location until it displays in green

NOTE: If you're creating a new box on a page and you don't want it to be the last box in the column, you have the option during the creation process of selecting it's vertical position in the column.

Moving boxes to another page

You can copy or link boxes to display content on another page, but if you want to change the home location for a box:

  • open the page where the box currently resides
  • select "Reorder Boxes on This Page" from the drop-down list under Add/Edit Pages in the Command Bar
  • wait a few seconds after the text appears for the page to completely load
  • drag the box to the right column until it displays in green under the page to which you want to move it

This can be particularly useful for reorganizing if you had created a page, but it eventually became too long and you decide to break it into multiple subpages. Create the blank subpages and then open the main page and sort the boxes to the new subpages. You'll probably need to open up each subpage and reorganize the boxes on each page.

Bulleted lists

If you don't want to use the box types for Simple Web Links, Links & Lists or Books from the Catalog, you can code bulleted lists using the rich text editor. If you're backspacing while editing the list you may find that you've inadvertently deleted some of the coding. The least problematic method is to just type up the list without bullets including lines of text beyond the list you're going to bullet and then highlight the sections to be bulleted once you're done. You can also highlight sections within the bulleted list to subindent using the indent button in the Rich-Text Editor. Example:

THESAURI
