Troubleshooting page edits

If you are experiencing difficulty editing a page, there are a few common issues you may have encountered. Here's how to troubleshoot those issues. 

Properly navigate to the page

If you log into a page and click menu items or links in the Preview or Editor window, then the edit buttons will not appear. Instead, you must navigate directly to the web page using a web browser or within OmniUpdate using the Pages list.

To go to the Pages list, log in and click "Pages" Pages button in the upper left-hand corner. Then find the file or web page you want to edit and click to edit it. 

Get access to the page

If you should have access to a web page, then complete this form to request it. The web development team will be in touch with you shortly. 

Unlock the page

Only one user is able to edit a page at a time. When a user edits a page it becomes locked and only they can access it. To unlock the page, you must contact the person who has it locked and ask them to unlock it. You can tell who has it locked by hovering over the the lock icon. Lock icon

If you are unable to have a page unlocked, then please contact the web development team by completing this form.
