What is a Department Root?

A Department Root is a special kind of folder which allows a site to be hierarchically organized into several content domains for organizational units. Department Roots hold several properties which are inherited to their child objects. Such properties include the department's portlets, a department-specific image or -stylesheet to be used for displaying the published objects.

The following screenshot shows an example of how Department Links, a Department Image and the Department Title can be used in in the published version of a Department Root. All three properties are present on each published child object of the department.

How to add a Department Image

Like a Department Stylesheet, a Department Image can be used to emphasize the individuality of the department's web-presence apart from a default look and feel. You can assign a Department Image by filling in the appropiate field in the "Edit Department Root" dialogue.
