Page Check

Page check reviews your page for spelling, link, World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) validation and accessibility errors. Page check reviews the preview of your page, that is, how the page looks inside Modern Campus CMS without include files. Page check reviews reusable content on the page and performs the same checks as final check.

  1. Navigate to Content > Pages, click the More Actions menu More Actions menu, click Review > Page Check.
    • When viewing a checked-out page, click More Actions in the page actions toolbar.
  2. From the Page Check box select the following:
    • File Type: Select an item from the dropdown.
      • Some pages create more than one item when published, for example, both a web page (HTML) and a PDF file.
    • Run All: Click to run all available checks (Spelling, Links, W3C Valid, and Accessibility).
    • Spell Check Language: Select a language for the spell check.
    • Spelling: Click to check the spelling of the page.
    • Links: Click to check for broken links on the page.
      • Levels 9 and 10 users can Make Exception to allow pages in the account to publish without fixing the link.
    • W3C Valid: Click to check for valid HTML and XHTML code on the page.
    • Accessibility: Click to check that the page conforms to accessibility standards.
  3. When the check is complete, click Show Results to see a detailed breakdown of the problems.
  4. Click Done.

Administrators can configure page check options (including accessibility guidelines) in account settings. They can also set page check at the site and user level.

SpellingLink to this section

The Spell Check Results box lists misspelled words on the page and how many times they occur.

Right-click on the word, click +Add to Dictionary, and spell check no longer counts it as misspelled. Depending on restrictions set by your Administrator, you may not have the ability to add words to the dictionary.

Spell check scans words in the editable page content, the source code, and image descriptions.

Words may display correctly but be marked as misspelled due to tags in the code. For example, writing folde<span>r</span> will appear as "folder" in the page text, but spell check will register "folde" as a misspelled word.

The Link Check Results box shows every link on the page, whether it works or not. It lists the URL, the status of the link on both the staging and production servers, and a status code (if applicable).

Levels 9 and 10 users can Make Exception to allow pages in the account to publish without fixing the link. Link check will automatically ignore links beginning with "tel:" or "mailto:".

W3C ValidLink to this section

Most web pages are written using markup languages such as HTML and XHTML. The W3C develops standards for the use of these languages. The W3C check in Modern Campus CMS makes sure that your page obeys these standards.

As you edit content, the What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) editor translates your changes into valid code. However, it may miss some items. A W3C error doesn't always prevent a page from displaying on your website, but can cause inconsistencies in how the page looks in different web browsers.

The W3C Validation Results box shows errors and warnings along with a location in the source code and a description of the cause.

AccessibilityLink to this section

Accessibility check looks for issues in the page as defined by accessibility standards such as Section 508 and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). It can identify up to four types of issues:

Critical issues block content for people with disabilities and will definitely prevent them from accessing fundamental features or content.Serious issues will partially prevent people with disabilities from accessing fundamental features or content.Moderate issues for people with disabilities will not prevent them from accessing fundamental features or content.Minor issues are considered to be an annoyance for people with disabilities.

The Accessibility Check Results shows the cause of the issue, location of the issue in the source code, suggested repair(s), and a description of the repair needed.

This automated accessibility check scans page content that is visible to the website visitor once it's published. Content that is hidden from a visitor or assistive technology will not be automatically analyzed for accessibility rule violations.

So any view that is offscreen—such as dialogs, modals, pop-ups, accordions, or tab regions—cannot be automated for accessibility. Please check these elements manually for accessibility conformance.

Level 10 administrators can add exceptions to the accessibility check by clicking Make Exception for an identified issue. Exceptions are still noted by the system but don't prevent page publish, if the page needs to pass page check to be published.

When adding an exception from page check results, that exception is made for every page in the site. Manage accessibility check settings and exceptions from the account settings.
