The Basics

The Basics

Pages hold the content (headings, paragraphs, images, videos, etc.) of your site. Some templates can cater for multiple pages in a single location, such as 'News' or 'Bio' templates. Others may not require pages at all, for example 'Landing' and 'Homepage' templates. You can refer to the template manual (created and sent to you during UAT) to see the selection of templates available for your site.

Here's some guides for managing Pages on your CMS:

Creating New Pages

To create a new page, go to 'Pages' on the navigation bar. Then, using the Site Structure menu on the LHS, select the location in which you would like to add the new page and select 'New'.

PageNew1

In the 'Basic details' tab, give the new page a title and alternate title - selecting selecting 'Get suggested' will automatically create a URL so that the full path of the page is defined. Scroll down further in the 'Basic details' tab to add a thumbnail for the page, utilize page tools such as forms, polls, and so on. Learn more about editing the basic details of a page here.

To add to / edit a page's content (text, images, etc.), see the next section of the accordion. 

Editing Page Contents

Pages are used to store the content to a site. Images and files can be uploaded to locations and then related or embedded to these pages. 

To add content to a page, go to 'Pages' on the navigation bar. Find the page you want to edit in the 'Site Structure' menu on the LHS, and select it.

PageContent1

Navigate to the 'Content' section of the page, where you will be able to add different types of text, files and media. Click 'Edit' below the navigation bar, or the red button highlighted in the image below, to begin editing.

Saving a Draft Page

To save a page as a draft before publishing it live to your site, follow the steps above for 'Creating a New Page'. However, when finished editing, change the setting at the bottom of the page so it reads 'Save to draft folder' as opposed to 'Publish', and select 'Save'.

DraftPage1

Publish a Draft Page / Unpublish a Page

To find a draft page, first select 'Pages' on navigation bar. Use the 'Site Structure' sidebar on the LHS to select to the location in which your page exists. Tick the 'Draft' checkbox to include draft pages in the list of pages within the selected location. This page can then be published by changing the setting at the bottom of the page so it reads 'Publish' as opposed to 'Save to draft folder'. Finally, click 'Save' to complete the publishing. 

DraftPage2

To unpublish a page without deleting it, follow the same steps as above to find and select the relevant page, and select 'Unpublish' beneath the navigation bar.
