Pages

Creating a Page 

Under the Content tab or on the Dashboard, you will see a link to Pages. This is where you can add, edit and control the pages of your site. To add a new page, click the Add link below where it says Pages. 

This will open the page editor. 

As always, when you are editing or creating a page, do not forget to save often. This will prevent you from losing any work.

Display

There are usually five options for display. 

  • Top Nav & Side Nav – If you select this option, the page will appear in both the top, main navigation and any side navigation on a page.
  • Only Top Nav – This option allows a page to only appear in the top, main navigation.
  • Only Side Nav – This option allows a page to only appear in any side navigation on a page.
  • Hidden: Not in Nav – This allows a page to still be viewed by a site visitor but not appear in any navigation. This is often used for third tier pages that are linked to within another page only.
  • Inactive: Not Viewable – This allows you to hide a page so that it is not accessible by a site visitor but it remains in FullPanel.  

Layout

This allows you to choose the layout of your page. Often you are given the option of “Two-column” which has a main content area and a side bar of info or “One-column” which is just a main content area.

Parent

This “nests” the page as a subpage of another “parent” page. By selecting a parent page you will create a hierarchy of pages.

Name (Short)

How the page name will appear in the site’s navigation. It does not have to be the same as the page title.

Title (Long)

How the page name will appear at the top of all other content. It does not have to be the same as navigation name.

Content

This is where you put the body text that you would like on your page. You can add pictures, links, etc, and with the tool bar, you have the ability to use the editor like you would any word processor. 

 

Editing a Page 

Under Content > Pages you will see a list of the existing pages. To the left of each page there is a link that says Edit. Click on this link to edit the desired page.

You cannot paste a photo or PDF into the editor tool, only images and PDFs that have been uploaded to the File Manager. Please see Adding an Image from the File Manager to a Content Page in the next section for instructions. 

Adding a Header Photo

In this tab, you are able to upload a photo or chose an existing photo in the system to use as the header photo. Note that this photo must adhere to the image sizes specific in the CMS.

Adding a Photo Gallery

Here you can choose a photo from your computer and upload it to the page. This tab allows you to title the photo, as well as make a caption for the photo. All photos added to this section will be included in the gallery that will automatically appear in the top right of your page's content. This is great to use if you have more than one photo for a specific page. All photos should be no more than 1,000 pixels tall. Learn more about adding photo galleries.

Uploading a PDF

Here you can upload a PDF to your page and manage your PDFs as well. The title you give the PDF will be the link that is displayed on the page of your website.

Updating Custom Blocks

This section is customized to your site, so it may not be relevant with your design. Here you can edit content in the side bar on internal pages.

Assigning a Callout to a Page

Here you can choose which callout graphics you want to show up on the page if these are included on your site. Callouts usually appear in the side bar on pages with a two-column layout. Learn more about adding a callout to your site.

Updating Meta Information

(Information used by search engines)

Metadata is structured data which describes the characteristics of a resource. Every website page contains meta information that describes the contents and other properties of your website.

  • URL - This will be created for you from your Page Name (Short). There should be no need to edit this field. Once you've published a page, editing the URL can break links throughout your site. 
  • Meta Title - A short title (50-60 characters) that can be viewed in the tab or very top of your browser. This may also show up in search engine results.
  • Meta Keywords - This section of the CMS is not utilized with today’s current SEO strategies.
  • Meta Description - A description (150-160 characters) that is not visible on the actual website but may appear when your website shows up in a search engine results page.

Deleting a Page 

Under Content > Pages you will see a list of the existing pages. To the left of each page there is a small checkbox that allows you to select the desired page(s) to delete. Once the page/pages are selected, scroll to the bottom of the page where you will see a button that says Delete Selected.
