Demonstrating EdWeb


Your proxied content can be set to resemble EdWeb content. Some elements are set in EdWeb, but most are set by the proxy itself.

Which elements are set where?

Set in EdWeb

Some aspects are controlled in EdWeb:

  • metadata (description, keywords, search engine indexing)
  • references
  • location and navigation (top level)
  • publishing (proxies still use established EdWeb content workflows)

Set by proxy

  • page title
  • navigation
  • subsections

The page summary that appears on the page is set by the proxy, but there is also an EdWeb summary, which is used where the page is automatically shared within EdWeb.

What features can I use?

Heading levels can be used as far as H6. It may be better to split your content into more pages, which can be achieved within proxied content by using the available navigation options.

Headings - page elements

You can and should use abbreviation and language tagging in the same way that you would on a generic content page.

Accessibility and editorial approach

You are still responsible for the content presented on your page, and it's important not to forget laws about accessibility and cookies, as well as editorial and IA guidelines.
