Add a New Page

Inner Pages will build the skeleton of your website. This will show you how to create additional pages and organize the information on your site. There are two types of Inner Pages: Parent Pages and Sub Pages. Parent Pages appear as a primary menu item visible at all times, while Sub Pages appear underneath another page as a drop down. Notice in the screen shot below: the pages labeled Home, Programs, About Us, and Team Central are the Parent Pages. About Our Club, Our Staff, Alumni, Announcements are all Sub Pages.

 





Steps to Add an Inner Page:

  1. Click Website on the Blue Sombrero bar.

  2. Click the green button labeled New Page.



  3. Now give your page a Name and click on the Save Page button.



  4. To make this page a subpage, click and drag your new page, hovering your cursor over the page you'd like to move it underneath. 

  5. Choose how you'd like your page to display in the site's navigation. If you uncheck the Page box, you will make your page an navigation placeholder ( think of this as a heading for grouping sub pages). If you uncheck the Showing box, the page will not display on the main navigation. You will need to link users directly to the page.
