Kaltura Embeds
Videos shown on the resource sites are embedded using LCC’s media platform, Kaltura. See below for an example of the embed code—code for each individual video can be pulled from the Kaltura Media Center (ask Mike if you need assistance with this). When embedding video be sure to use class="kaltura-video"
<script src=""></script>

Parent / Child
Parent/Child relationships determine the URL structure of the site, as well as the breadcrumb navigation. Breadcrumbs are managed by the Prime Strategy Bread Crumb plugin. Ensure that relationships make sense, and that wherever possible, the parent/child relationship is reflected in the primary navigation menu.
