Support for our UBCMS developers.
Sorry, gang, for an awkward page. It's currently a quick dumping place for what we feel may be useful tips.

To maintain security and stability of the UBCMS, we have established the following guidelines for customization and development.
Site authors (developers) can do the following.
These actions are not allowed.
Please keep in mind:
The Akamai content delivery network (CDN) delivers our Web pages through high-speed 'edge' servers physically located around the globe, instead of through the 'origin' servers directly (our UBCMS servers). The CDN helps accelerate, filter, and secure web traffic.
The link to CRXDE is off the Start page. Look on the left for the Tools hammer icon. Click that to reveal 'General'. Click that to reveal the link to CRXDE (developers only).
The link to the Tag Admin Console is off the Start page. Look on the left for the Tools hammer icon. Click that to reveal 'General'. Click that to reveal the link to Tags (admins only).
The links to the User Admin and Group Manager Tools are off the Start page. Look on the left for the Tools hammer icon. Click that to reveal Security. Click that to reveal the link to both user tools (admins only).
Display your page as it would appear in mobile phones and other size devices.
You can copy and paste content from one browser tab to another.
Compare two versions of a page, usually the current with the last published.
Use this trick to compare two different pages side by side in one window. It's similar to the Diff tool, but for any pages you specify, and without markup.
This example compares two university news releases in from shared content: https://ubcms-author.buffalo.edu/mnt/overlay/wcm/core/content/sites/diffresources.html/content/shared/university/news/news-center-releases/2021/01/001?item=/content/shared/university/news/news-center-releases/2021/01/003&sideBySide
