Adding Featured Videos in the News & Events section:

First sign in to the iSchool website with your UW NetID and password . Go to the purple bar at the top of the page. Click on the “Content” tab, this will take you to the  Drupal environment for our site. Click on the “Add content” tab on the second row at the top of the page and then select “Video”. Once the page opens up, fill in the “Title” of the video, select its “Video Source”, paste in the URL of the “Video Link”, and upload a “Thumbnail” of the video screenshot. Make sure you resize the image to exactly 296×160 pixels, and the image size is less than 50KB, otherwise the upload will fail. The “Body” field is optional and displays the video description if filled. The NETID field is also optional, and should be filled in only if the video content is related to an iSchool faculty/staff, AND you wish to display the video on their profile page (example shown here), in which case you will have to fill in their UW NetID(s). Make sure that before you save, the “Published” option under “Publishing options” is checked. You may also preview your entry before you save and publish it.

After you publish the video, an individual view of the video will be displayed. If you click on the “Videos” tab on the left sidebar, it will bring you to the listing view of the Videos. The one you have just added will appear at the top.
