UQ Base Template



Welcome to The University of Queensland Site Editor training tutorials for the UQ Base theme websites. All new users to the Drupal Content Management System (CMS) are required to undertake Editor Training.

  • Which theme is applied to my website?

    If the front page of your website has the following image in the bottom left hand-side of the webpage, it is has the UQ School theme applied. If it does not have this image, then it has the UQ Base theme applied." If you website is using the UQ School theme, access the UQ School Template training.


  • Site Editors have the basic set of permissions that will allow them to easily maintain the websites that they are responsible for. Their primary purpose is to generate and maintain content for their UQ website.
