Creating a Page

Add a Page

  1. In the Site Admin left-hand Navigation Pane, click to highlight the page icon for your main content page. Make sure you first highlight the page one level above where you want to add the page (i.e., the parent page).
  2. In the right-hand Site Admin Details Pane, click "New..." in the menu bar. The Create Page window will open. Alternatively, you can select the down arrow next to the word "New..." and then select New Page.
  3. In the Title field, provide a brief title that will be displayed in the published page's browser title, main page title, and page navigation.
  4. The Name field refers to the URL of the new page. Leave this field blank; the CMS will automatically generate a page URL based on the page title previously entered.
  5. Click on the template you wish to use to determine the basic layout of your content page (see Choose a Template for more information).
  6. Click the Create button.
  7. You will be returned to the Site Admin. The new page will now be listed in both the Navigation and Details Panes.
