About your provider page in Public Site Manager
The provider page is your top-level, or main page welcoming users to your site. When you first sign in to your new site, iTunes U Public Site Manager creates a default provider page ready for publishing; including top content, categories, and so on. You can use the default provider page as is or customize the page to display your institution’s specific design and information. For example, you can add provider art, feature boxes, all courses, and URL and Languages lists, as well as configure the page and preview the layouts through a single user interface.
In addition to the features allowing you to add and customize boxes and lists, the configurable provider page also provides you with tools to see how iTunes U Public Site Manager displays your content for iTunes and iPad and iPhone devices:
Availability Guide. For each provider page interface element, the Availability Guide indicates whether or not the element is available for iTunes, iPad, and iPhone. If an element is not available on a device, iTunes U Public Site Manager displays a dimmed device name in the Availability Guide.
Layout Guide. The Layout Guide uses blue highlighting to indicate where each provider page interface element appears in iTunes, iPad, and iPhone provider pages.
iTunes U Public Site Manager can always display two states for your site: the currently staged, work-in-progress site and the live, published site. Using the configurable provider page menu items you can view both:
Use the View Preview menu item to preview your work-in-progress iTunes provider page.
Use the View Live Page menu item to view your live iTunes published provider page.
You can use these menu items to compare your work-in-progress provider page with your live provider page after you publish.
Note: If you need to change your provider page title, contact iTunes U Public Site Manager support.
