Step 2 - Name your page
Step 3 - Choose the Page Type
Learn more about each page type:
Step 4 - Drag your page to the menu and click Save
Removing a Page
Step 1 - Click the Remove a Page button
Alternatively, if you're in Advanced Mode click the Manage Pages button
Step 2 - Drag the page to the trash can and click Save
Keep in Mind:
- You do not have a limit of main pages or subpages.
- You can drag and move the Site Editor tool panel in your browser's window to see a section it might be covering.
- Try to give your pages short names such as Ministries, Events or Contact.
We recommend naming your page short names such as Ministries, Events or Contact. This not only creates more space within your navigation, but it also helps create shorter URL's that are easiest to share. The URL is based off of the page name so a page named Events would be www.yourdomain.com/events. If your page names has two words, such as About Us, the URL would be www.yourdomain.com/About-Us. At this time, the only way to control the URL is to change the page name, so try to use one word when naming a page.
When you add a new page to your website, and place it under a pre-existing page, the pre-existing page will continue to act as a landing page. A landing page is a page that can be viewed by anyone visiting your website, with its own unique content and layout.
However, you can change it to a non-landing page at any time by clicking the gear symbol on the Manage Pages screen and checking the box under Page Options, like, in the image below. A non-landing page is a page with no content, that cannot be viewed. Someone who clicks on a non-landing page will be automatically redirected to whatever the first subpage is under the non-landing page. So, for example, if you look at the image below, you'll see the Ministries page is currently a landing page. If we were to uncheck that box, Ministries would become a non-landing page. That means anyone who clicked on a link to the Ministries page would be redirected to the Staff page instead, since its the first subpage under Ministries.
NOTE: Setting an "External Website" page as the first subpage under a Non-landing page will cause the Non-landing menu option to be nonresponsive when clicked. As such, it is recommended to have "External Website" pages listed only as the 2nd (3rd, etc) subpage under a Non-landing page of your site menu or simply setting the page in question to be a Landing page instead.
Non-landing pages can be really helpful when you want to organize a group of similar subpages into one area on your website but you don't want to create a brand new landing page, with new images and text, to put it under. By adding a non-landing page, you are essentially creating a descriptive banner to organize your subpages under.
