Logging In and Navigating

Log in to your Drupal site

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.

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.

The ID lets you know you’re logged in to the site. 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. The arrow allows you to toggle the menu bar from the top of the screen to the side of the screen.

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. 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 the content types together and displays like content types 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  • Status - this groups pages that are published and unpublished and displays them in order.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 search for specific content using the search bar.
