Request Access

To get access to your web pages on wilkes.edu within Omni CMS, please contact Web Services at brittany.terpstra@wilkes.edu to schedule a training session.

The DirectEdit Link

The DirectEdit Link is the simplest way to log in and go directly to the page you need to edit. It is a "hidden" link on every published webpage that you can use to access the Omni CMS interface.

The DirectEdit link is the © sign in the footer of wilkes.edu. Clicking the link prompts you to log in using your department assigned credentials.

Assuming you have editing permissions for that page and that you logged in successfully, you will then be taken to the Edit View for the page.  From there, you will be able to edit any editable regions and will also be able to navigate to other pages and information that you have access to using the Omni CMS menus.
