Building web pages in T4 using responsive content types
Duration 3 hours
Team Digital Communications Team

This course is run by the Digital Communications team

In the last few years, most of the University’s webpages have moved to responsive templates.

This means that pages automatically resize to fit different screen sizes and devices (e.g. mobile phones and tablets).

Responsive pages are constructed from easy-to-use building blocks or ‘content types’.

The aim of this workshop is to help you understand what these different content types are, and how to use them effectively to build responsive pages in T4.

Pre-Requisites

This workshop is for staff who already publish to the website in T4, but who are less experienced or confident in using the newer responsive content types to build and edit pages.

All Faculty and School sites use the responsive content types, whereas they're used in only a few sites across Professional Services. Ask your Site Admin for guidance if you’re unsure whether your site does, or simply view your site on your mobile phone – you should not need to ‘pinch and zoom’ to read text on a site that uses responsive content types.

Content in this workshop is covered by the online T4 responsive training course. If you have recently completed that training, you may find our quick guides more useful as they focus on specific tasks.

Please note, this course is NOT for new web publishers, who must complete the online training course before they are given access to edit the website in T4.
