Support page - accessing support, editing the page, adding site admin details

Louise Cato -

Please note: while the written guidance in this article should be up to date, the screenshots may not be. Please bear with us. We’re carrying out work to update all the screenshots in the Knowledge Base for Citizen Space 7 and (hopefully) to automate the process for future. Thank you for your patience!

When logged in to Citizen Space as an administrator, you can access support at any time by clicking on the 'Help' link on the right-hand side of the dark grey admin navigation bar across the top of the screen.

It leads to a page containing a link to access our Citizen Space quick start guide and a link to this Citizen Space knowledge base. This page can also include the contact details of the key site admin for your Citizen Space hub, so your users know who they can contact for guidance specific to your organisation.

Importantly, the page can be edited by site admins to include guidance and information for your users about how you as an organisation consult.


How to edit the page (site admin only)

When logged in as a site admin, select the 'Site' dropdown from the dark grey admin navigation bar across the top of the page. Next, select 'Settings'. This will take you to the Site settings section, where you'll find the link 'Pages' which leads to the screen for managing editable page content in your site. Select the option from the list called '"More help" section of the admin support page'.


You can then add further information to this page using the box provided. This will all appear on the support page under the heading 'More help'. 

In the example here, we have added in a link to an organisation's consultation guidelines document, as well as embedding a document about the Gunning Principles. To learn how to embed PDFs in Citizen Space, please follow the instructions in this article.

Once you are happy, save your page. You will be shown how the 'More help' section looks, and if you click on the 'Help' link on the right-hand side of the admin navigation bar again you can see how the whole page now looks.

If you do not wish to add your own support guidance, but would like the contact details of one of your Citizen Space site admins added to this page, please let us know who you would like it to be and we can set this for you. Of course, you are also more than welcome to add the contact details of any of your site admins along with additional guidance by using the 'More help' section described above, too.
