Tridion User Guide
Tridion Training VideosBefore getting access to Tridion, you must review the Tridion Training Videos. This series of short videos introduce the basic concepts needed to use the CMS and demonstrate how to make simple edits in the system.
You need to use a web browser (e.g. Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, or Safari) to access Tridion. The program will only be "open" in the tab or window that you are using Tridion. Tridion operates best on Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. If necessary, Explorer 8.0 or higher or the latest version of Safari can be used, but Tridion runs slower on these browsers.
- If you are not using a computer that is directly connected to the Yale network (i.e., working from home), log into the network using the Yale VPN first.
- Tridion can be accessed at http://edit.yale.edu/. You will be prompted to login with your NetID and password.
- Notes: Turn off pop-up blockers for the domain: edit.yale.edu. If it's your first time accessing Tridion, you'll have to select your preferred language before you can begin editing.
