Organizing content: Folders, Boards and Posts

In Finalsite Posts, you can use Folders and Boards to organize your content.

When you first open Posts, you'll click on the "Boards" button to display a list of Boards, sorted into Folders. Folders let you organize your Boards by whatever organizational scheme makes sense for your school. 


Click the green "New Folder" button to create a folder and add new Boards to it. (Boards can only be created within folders.) 


Note that only Site Admins who have the "Posts" Admin right have the ability to create new Folders and Boards.

Regular Posts users with Admin rights to an individual Board cannot create new Boards or Folders, they can only create new individual Posts.


Boards are collections of Posts related to the same topic. Each Board has its own group of Admin users who are able to post to it. When displaying content from Finalsite Posts on a site page, you can do so using either a "Boards" element, or a "Posts" element.

"Boards" elements will show a list of Boards in a folder that you choose. Users can click on a Board to see its posts. Use the dropdown menu in the "Content Filters" section to select a Folder.

"Posts" elements show the Posts on a Board (or Boards) that you choose. Users can click on a Post listing to see the full Post content either in a popup window or on a new page. On the "Posts" element, the "Content Filters" controls let you select which Boards to display.
