Becoming a Drupal Editor

Each department decides who they would like to be an editor of their website.  All users are required to attend Drupal Training prior to website access.

The first step to getting started in Drupal is signing in!

A first time login is required by you, after which University Communications and Marketing (UCM) can setup your account. 

Follow these steps to sign into Drupal with your FlashLine credentials:

  1. Go to https://www.kent.edu/user.
  2. Username = FlashLine User Name, for example ailge64 is the FlashLine User ID for ailge64@kent.edu (the part before @kent.edu)
  3. Password = FlashLine password
  4. Click the Login button.

Logging In Day-to-Day

Login at www.kent.edu/user using your FlashLine credentials.  You will be directed to your Dashboard and will have access to the black toolbar which contains information about the page you are viewing.
