Services: Add a New Page

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. 

  1. In the left menu bar of the administrative area, go to Pages > Add New
  2. 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. 
  3. 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:
    1. Visual – If you edit on the Visual tab, you will have access to rich format buttons, such as those in Microsoft Word
    2. Text – If you edit on the Text tab, you can use the included HTML buttons or manually enter any HTML tags and content.
    3. Media – You can use the Add Media button to upload media files, edit metadata, and insert the media into your page on either tab
  4. In the right column, scroll down to the Page Attributes section and edit the following fields:
    1. Parent – Select the parent page (such as “Services”) from the drop-down box
    2. 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.
    3. Order – Do not edit the Order field, because the pages will be displayed alphabetically
  5. In the right column, scroll up to the Publish section and click Publish
  6. Optionally, you can use the following publishing settings:
    1. Save Draft – You can save your post as a draft for later editing so that only you can view the page
    2. Preview – You can preview your page before you publish it so that you can view and correct any errors
    3. Visibility – You can protect your page so that only users with the password can view it
    4. Publish date – You can set a page to be published in the past or in the future
