Website 101

This information can assist your program in maintaining the residency or fellowship pages for your program. Within each program, the Program Coordinator, Program Director, Chief Residents and/or other designated individuals can be given access in order to be able to edit the page on an ongoing basis. As of August 2020, all interested residency and fellowship programs migrated to a revised template and layout for their residency and fellowship pages

This video highlights the basics for updating and editing content on program webpages.

Included in the video is information on:

  • Utilizing LSU Health Web Best Practices

  • Using toolbar features in the Content Management System (CMS)

  • Creating a New Page/Listing Pre-Existing Files

  • Uploading a Document/Image

  • Embedding Videos

  • Editing Pictures

  • Tips for Recording Videos

*Please note: the video starts around the 2:15 minute mark

To replace an existing image (when you get a new resident photo), upload the new image, then enter the edit the page function.  In the page editor,  click on the image that needs to be replaced and then click the image icon on the toolbar.  (The images may not display when you’re in the Page Editor… that is OK).

Once in the image properties window, click the Browse Server button to tell the system where the image that was uploaded is located.

Once that’s done, you should be able to save the page and see the changes.  

Copy the following code into the “Source” view of a CMS editor in order to embed a video. The code will allow the video to scale responsively. Replace VIDEOID with the video ID from the video’s URL. For example, the Video ID for is 3LGnHrQHgc4.

<div class='embed-container'>
<iframe frameborder="0" height="420" src="//" width="700">&amp;#160;</iframe>
