Pages Tutorial

Pages are used for content that is not time-sensitive. About and Contact information are good examples of when to use Pages.

Organizing Pages

Pages can be organized by having “Parent” and “Child” Pages. For example, you can organize Pages like this:

– Primates (parent)
—— Orangutans (child)
—— Chimpanzees (child)
—— Baboons (child)

To do this,
1) in the left column of the admin, look for Pages and select Edit (which shows you all of your Pages) or select Add New
2) create or edit your Page. In the right column, look for the section called Attributes. Underneath that is a subsection called Parent. If you are creating a top-level or Parent Page, then “Main Page (no parent)” should be selected. If you are creating a sub-page or Child Page, then select the appropriate Parent page.
3) in the right column, click the Update Page button

Comments / User Feedback

Generally, Pages don’t have comments, but they can. You can toggle comments on and off by editing the Page, and checking or unchecking “Allow Comments” and “Allow Pings” in the Discussion section (located in the main column of your Page).

Pages in Navigation

Depending on how your site is set up, your new Page may show up in the sidebar navigation of your site. If you want your Page to show up or not, then edit your Page in the admin. There’s a section in the right column under Attributes called Exclude Pages. Check or uncheck the box to show or hide the Page in the navigation.
