When you want to add a new page to your website, complete the following tasks in your website administrative area:
For more information about logging into your administrative area, contact Skyview Development.
- In the left menu bar of the administrative area, go to Pages > Add New
- In the top text box, enter the name of the new page
TIP: Keep the title short and do not include symbols such as “+” so that it appears as expected on various pages of the website.
- To create the contents for your page, add the information in the large, centered text box. There are several ways to edit your page using the Visual and Text(HTML) tabs:
- Visual – If you edit on the Visual tab, you will have access to rich format buttons, such as those in Microsoft Word
- Text – If you edit on the Text tab, you can use the included HTML buttons or manually enter any HTML tags and content.
- Media – You can use the Add Media button to upload media files, edit metadata, and insert the media into your page on either tab
- In the right column, scroll down to the Page Attributes section and edit the following fields:
- Parent – Select the parent page (such as “Services”) from the drop-down box
- Template – Select the appropriate template (such as “Default Template”) from the drop-down box
NOTE: Your default template might include your menu sidebar on the page. In some cases, you might want to use a “Full Width Page” template to use the full page and remove the side menu.
- Order – Do not edit the Order field, because the pages will be displayed alphabetically
- In the right column, scroll up to the Publish section and click Publish
- Optionally, you can use the following publishing settings:
- Save Draft – You can save your post as a draft for later editing so that only you can view the page
- Preview – You can preview your page before you publish it so that you can view and correct any errors
- Visibility – You can protect your page so that only users with the password can view it
- Publish date – You can set a page to be published in the past or in the future
