What would you like to EDIT on your site in Cascade?

Edit Pages- edit any page on your site.

Editing Tip #1: If you are finding that the editor is too small to see all of the changes that you are trying to make, click Fullscreen button to make the editor full screen (it is located at the end of the second row of icons and is an icon of 4 arrows going in different directions).

Editing Tip #2: If you are familiar with HTML, you can click Source code button to view and edit the HTML directly without using the Editor (it is located to the left of the Fullscreen button and is an icon of the less than and greater than symbols facing each other).

To edit a page:

  1. Select the page that you would like to edit
  2. The page is now in View mode. 
  3. Click on the Edit tab to begin editing.
  4. Edit your page or use the WYSIWYG Editor Toolbar to make any changes.
  5. Click the ellipses next to the Save & Preview and then click Submit button to save your changes.

Version Control- how to restore a previous version of a block or portion of a page, etc.

If you make a change to an asset (i.e a block or version of a page) and are not happy with the changes, Cascade offers version control.  This allows you to restore a previous version of the block or portion of the page.

Viewing Versions

To view asset versions, click the three elipses More > Versions while viewing the asset. The details of the current version of the asset will appear at the top of the window. Past versions will be listed below with the following details:

  • Name - The version number (automatically generated) and asset link for that version. Hover over the name to view the asset path.
  • Last Modified - The time that this version was last modified and the user who last edited the asset. Hover over the time to get the exact date and time.
  • Comments (for Site Content assets) - Any comments relevant to a particular version. Some version comments will be automatically generated.
To view a previous version of an asset, click the asset link for that version in the Name column to open it in the main content area. From this view you can click More to access additional actions such as restore, delete, view an older or newer version, and view the current version.

Restoring a Version

To restore a version, select it from the versions list and click the Restore this version icon at the top of the list.

When previewing the version you wish to restore, click More > Restore this version.

Tip: Restoring a version does not wipe out the current version for an asset. The current version becomes versioned as well, allowing you to effectively "undo" the restoration.

Delete- how to delete a page (or other asset in Cascade).

Deleting Tip #1: A deleted asset in Cascade is only available to restore for approximately 2 weeks after you have deleted it.  After that time, it is permanently deleted from the system and there is no way to restore it.  Please be careful when deleting anything from your site.

Deleting Tip #2: Deleting an asset in Cascade automatically unpublishes it from the web server (i.e. your public website).  

To delete an asset:

  1. Click a the page/asset you wish to delete and then click More on the top bar on the asset viewer.
  2. Click on Delete.
  3. Confirm you would like to delete your asset in the pop-up (Cascade will display the file path for review).
  4. The asset will now appear in the trash folder.

 If you wish to restore a deleted file, please see the "Restore" documentation, directly below.

Note on Deleting folders: To help prevent leaving empty folders on your web server, when unpublishing assets Cascade CMS will now check if the assets' parent folder on the web server is empty and if so will attempt to delete it (with the exception of the site's base folder).

Restore- how to restore a recently deleted item in Cascade

When you Delete items in Cascade, they are moved to the Trash folder and remain there for approximately 2 weeks. During that time, you will be able to Restore the file.  
  1. To begin, click on the Trash folder which can be found in the left sidebar under Site Content.  
  2. You will be directed to a menu of items you have recently deleted.  If you cannot find your item in this trash folder, you will not be able to restore it (and WTS cannot restore it either.)
  3. Select the file you want to restore.
  4. Click on the Restore icon (an arrow pointing left).
  5. You should see a box on the top right corner saying your restore was successful. Your file should now be restored to its original location.

Inserting Images into a Page- insert an image to a page inside Cascade.

Image Tip #1: To add an image to your web page, the image must be available in your folder structure within Cascade.  If you have not uploaded the image file into Cascade yet, please see the Upload Files (Image, PDF, etc.) section on the Create page for instructions.

Image Tip #2: To insert the image, you must be editing a page.  If you are unsure of how to do this, please close this tab and choose the Edit Pages tab.

To insert an image:

  1. Click a the page you wish to edit and then click Edit on the top bar on the page.
  2. Click on the area of the page where you want to insert the image.
  3. Click on the Insert/edit image icon  located in the toolbar.
  4. Click on the Choose File to select the image.
  5. Select the image file from Cascade's internal search, then click Choose.
  6. Click Ok. Your image should now be on your page.
  7. Click the ellipses next to the Save & Preview and then click Submit to save the changes.
