Logging In and Out

Instead of logging into a web site for OU Campus, the CMS uses a "secret" link, called the DirectEdit Link, on every web page a web author has permissions to update. Starting with the web page means web authors are taken directly into the page and site they want to update.

Since all of UNC's web pages are now technically one "site", the list of individual sites is very long and this method makes it quicker to get into your pages in the CMS.

How to Log In

Web Authors and Contributors alike can log in to OU Campus via a published page with the use of an on-page link known as DirectEdit™.  The DirectEdit link is the "Page Last Updated" date located in the footer. Every page of a web site managed by OU Campus includes a DirectEdit link to allow content contributors to log in directly to edit a page.

Login to OU Campus with DirectEdit

  1. Navigate to the desired page on the “live” website
  2. Click the DirectEdit link on the published page. For UNCO’s website, the DirectEdit link is the “Page Last Updated” date at the bottom of the footer on each page.
