Your Drupal Website
Congratulations, your new Drupal website is up and running. Thank you for your partnership with us and for building this site in Baylor’s new web content management system.
Below, are some helpful reminders about how to manage your website:
Each Drupal website has a unique place to login, and your web consultant will provide this to you when creating your site. If you don't have that link handy, you can access the login page by appending
/login to your website's URL.
For example, to manage this site's content, you would go to
Most of your site’s information is contained on Basic Pages. You can create, edit, and delete these pages. Some content will be on Landing Pages, and like Basic Pages, you can create, edit, and delete these. Please be aware that Landing Pages have additional configuration options that your web consultant can help with.
In order for content to appear in the menus, you have to manually add a Basic Page or Landing Page to the menu. Within the menu, you can also add photos, icons, and summary information that can be displayed on a Child Page List.
Images and Documents
Images and Documents can be uploaded to Drupal's media library and placed within Body fields on a variety of content types.
Other Commonly Used Features
Your Drupal site may also contain other features. While Basic and Landing pages will contain most of your content, you may see these features:
- Tout Collections
- Message Centers
- Video Players
- Quick Search

While Drupal is the new web content management system, online forms are managed through two systems:
- Baylor Forms: Most forms will migrate to this platform when your site launches. Your web consultant will provide a link to login to this system if you have active forms there.
- Baylor CMS Forms: Older forms may continue to be managed in the Baylor CMS until 2023.
As a department administrator, you have the ability to administer content managers for your site using the Role Management application. Your web consultant is available to help with any questions you may have.
