In addition to your pre-existing content pages (About Us, Terms and Conditions, Home Page, etc), you can create your own pages to be used on your website. Say you have a third-party company that you would like to broadcast on your website or would like to add a page specifically for the training classes you provide, you can use the WISYWIG editor to easily design your own page!
Creating a New Page
Navigate to CMS > PAGES > MANAGE CONTENT.
This brings you to the list of content pages that your website contains. In the top left corner, you can select the option to Add New Page.
Once you have selected to add a new page, you will be directed to enter the information corresponding to the new page you will be creating.
- Page Title- Title page so that it can be easily identified.
- Status- For the page to be active on the front-end, the status must be enabled.
- URL Key- What can be typed behind the URL of the website that will take you directly to the page.
- Cannot contain capital letters or spaces.
- Example: www.sitebiz.com/support
- Include in Navigation Menu- You can choose to include a link to this page in the navigation menu of your website.
Creating Page Content
After entering the Page Information, you can select the Content tab to the right of the Page Information tab. Here you can select the Show/Hide Editor and use tools similar to Microsoft Word and Paint to create the content of your new webpage.
You can use the toolbar to add:
- Embedded Media
Next, you will need to select the Design tab and select how you would like the design of your page.
You have a few options you can choose from:
- 1 Column- The contents of the page span the full width of the webpage.
- 2 Columns with Left Bar- The main content spans to the right of the page and the sidebar floats to the left.
- 2 Columns with Right Bar- The main content spans to the left of the page and the sidebar floats to the right.
- 3 Columns- Has the main content and 2 sidebars. The main content and the left sidebar column are wrapped together and float as a unit. While the other sidebar floats to the right.
You have the option to enter a Meta description and/or Meta Keywords. This helps your page gain SEO scores.
The last tab to the right is Versions and is more useful for future instances. This contains every version of the webpage that has ever been saved. In case a webpage is ever damaged, you can come to the versions tab of any page and select the version you wish to restore.
Once you have approved the content and layout of your new page, you will need to Save and Publish the page.
Now you'll want to flush cache and reindex if necessary:
SYSTEM > CACHE MANAGEMENT. Select Flush Cache Storage at the top right of the page.
SYSTEM > INDEX MANAGEMENT. Select All, Submit next to Reindex Data at the top right of the page.
