How to add a page


If you have something new that you want to tell people about just, add another page. All you have to do is click a link, add a title and your content, then save your work!

Follow these steps to add a new page to your website. The essential points are highlighted in bold.

  1. Make sure you have logged in to your website using your admin details, then click an 'Add a Page' link in the 'Admin Menu'. This will automatically link your new page to the corresponding menu item. Here, you can see this website can add pages to a 'News' menu item and a 'Campaign' menu item.

  2. Give the new page a title in the textbox just above the toolbars.

  3. Use the content editor and its toolbar icons to add your content. (See here for more details on how the content editor works.)

  4. If your page is longer than a few short paragraphs (100 words or so), it is essential to use the 'Insert Read More' icon to create an introduction. Failure to do this may break your website's layout.

    The editor will use this to create an introduction, with the rest of the page available to your visitors through clicking a 'Read More' button. If you want, this short introduction can then be displayed in the 'Frontpage' publishing area. See the example below...

  5. Scroll down to the 'Publishing' area and decide on any options. These should be left as set, but if your website has a 'Frontpage' publishing area, you can set your content to appear there by changing the 'Show on Frontpage' option to 'Yes'.

Tips to help you add a page to your website:

  • Remember you are writing text online and this is therefore subject to your internet connection. This means it's a good idea to frequently click the 'Save' button and save your work to prevent data loss.
  • Once you save your work, it will be visible to the public. You can however hide your work from public view while you make changes. Do this by ensuring the 'Access Level' is set to 'Special' in the 'Publishing' area, then saving your change. Now only you will be able to see this content, so don't forget to return the setting to 'Public' when you have finished.
