Add content (artefacts) to a page

Content (or artefacts) includes personal information, external content uploaded as documents or images, and internal content created within Mahara. This guide describes the (generic) process for adding these to a page.

  1. Create a new page, or turn on editing on a page using the pencil edit icon at the top right.
    On the left of the page, there is a block menu. Each block represents a type of content or artefact. This list will be slightly different depending on which page type you are editing - dashboard, profile, 'normal' page.
  2. Expand the menu sections if necessary (click on the down arrow )
  3. Drag and drop a block onto one of the grey content regions on the page (draggable blocks are indicated by the crossed arrows icon ).
  4. A window will fly in from the right-hand side.
    • Edit the block title if available.
    • Choose from the list of available artefacts, or add new content using the relevant fields.
    • Tag the artefacts if they are not already tagged.
    • Click save to add the artefact to the page.
  5. Reorganise artefacts on the page as required.
  6. Change the layout of the page if this suits the content better.
  7. Click display page at the top left to see how the page will appear to

Artefacts, other than text boxes, created in-situ on the page will be stored in the Content section so they can be reused.
