Logging In and Navigating

Log In to Your Drupal site

Once you have gone through training and been given login access, follow these steps to log in to your new site using Single Sign-On (SSO):

  1. Type the name of your site in the address bar. For example: https://case.edu/yoursitenamehere
  2. Add “/caslogin” at the end of the URL. Now the example would look like this: https://case.edu/yoursitenamehere/caslogin. This will take you to the SSO screen.
  3. Enter your CWRU ID and password, then log in. If you are already logged in elsewhere, typing in the URL may automatically log you in and redirect you to your site.
    • Never give out your CWRU password to anyone. This presents a security risk to the university. If you find that you need additional help editing the website and have a coworker in mind, please submit a help desk ticket and let us know the CWRU ID of the person you would like to be trained and the website you are requesting assistance for.

Note: You can only login from your homepage. If there is anything else after the URL the site will give you an error and not allow you to log in.

What You Will See When You're Logged In

Drupal Toolbar

Now that you’re logged in to Drupal, you’ll see the toolbar at the top of every page on your site. If you don't see the toolbar, you are likely not logged in.

If this is your first time logging into the website, click Manage on the left-hand side of the toolbar to the left of your CWRU ID. This will present a new drop-down where you will see the options for Content and Main Navigation Menu. 

If you click your CWRU ID, a set of options will appear on the left-hand side of the toolbar: View Profile, Edit Profile and Log Out. To get back to the editing options from your CWRU ID settings, click the Manage option on the left-hand side of the toolbar.

The Content Overview Page

To access the content menus on your site, select the Manage menu in the toolbar. 

Clicking on Content takes you to the Content Overview page. This is where you’ll be able to see all of the pages on your site. 

In Drupal, you’ll see that pages are referred to as content types. These are assigned when the page is created based on the type of content a page will contain.

To help you find the page you need, you can sort by:

  • Title: This sorts alphabetically by the title of the page.
  • Content Type: This groups pages together of the same type and displays like content in order.
  • Status: This groups pages that are published and unpublished and displays them in order.
  • Updated: This will display the pages based on when they were last updated.

You can also search for specific pages using the search bar if you know at least part of the page's title.
