Create a New Video Page

If you need to embed a  video on a page in your Cascade website contact the New Media Lab.  They will put a new asset on your site that will allow you to create a new page that contains your video.  Once they have set up your new asset you can follow the directions below.

  • Before you create a new video page you will need to determine where the page will fall in the navigation
    • Remember a page will appear in the navigation based on what folder it is in
  • Highlight the folder where you will be putting the new video page
    note: if it is in the main navigation high light the Base Folder
  • To create a new page you will need to use an asset from the Add Content menu at the top of the screen
    • Select “Second Level Video”
      • note: your site may have different page assets for each folder

    • you will see the following screen
  • In the screen enter
    • Page Name: the file name used in the url (do not enter the .html). For example, if you are making a page for awards, make the page name “awards”
      • remember to use good web naming conventions
        • no spaces; use underscores or dashes instead (e.g. student_awards)
        • no special characters (? ! .)
        • use capital letters sparingly
    • Content Above Video: enter the content you want to appear above the video
      • this may be a title that relates to the video (using Heading 1)
      • this may be a paragraph introducing the video
      • this may be left blank – there will be nothing above the video
      • use the wysiwyg editor to format your text in this section
    • BrightCove Video ID or Brightcove Playlist ID:  
      • You may use only one of the two ID options, one must be left blank.
      • Both IDs are 13 digits that will be provided by the person who uploaded your video or the upload video screen
    • Account: dropdown is defaulted to NML
      • use the default — if you need to change it you will be informed
    • Content Below Video: enter the content you want to appear below the video
      • this may be a paragraph about the video
      • this may be left blank – there will be nothing above the video
      • use the wysiwyg editor to format your text in this section
