How to Create Pages

  1. Log in to your website’s dashboard.
  2. Click the Pages link at the top of the page.
  3. You’ll be shown a list of your default and created pages. You can drag-and-drop each page to reorder them on your navigation bar. Pages that have a line through them are currently inactive, meaning they won’t show up on your site. To enable them, click Show next to the Edit button.
  4. Click Add Page at the top of the list.
  5. When adding a new page, there are several fields for setting up the page:
    • Name: the name of the page or link.
    • Type: set to “Page” if you want the page to have content on it. If you just want to make it link to another page or another website, set this to “Link” and fill in the Custom URL field.
    • Vanity URL: the vanity URL will become the location where your page can be accessed on your website. For good SEO, it’s best to make the vanity URL all lowercase letters and replace spaces with hyphens. Note: this field becomes Custom URL if the Type field is set to “Link.”
    • Meta Title: search engines will use this value as the page title. This is how your page name will appear in search results. In most cases, you can set this and the Name field to the same value.
    • Meta Description: search engines will use this value as the page description. This is displayed in the search results under the page name.
    • Meta Keywords: some search engines don’t use keywords anymore, but we still give you the option to add them.
    • Page Settings: this is how you can set the page to be visible on your website and/or include the page as a link on the navigation bar.
    • Page Modules: you can assign default or custom page modules to a page. Think of page modules as content blocks that can be combined and organized to make up the content of your page. Learn how to create page modules here.
  6. You can preview your page settings while you make adjustments by clicking Preview. Previewing your site only affects the page for you, not the rest of the world.
  7. When you’re ready for the rest of the world to see your new page, click Save & Publish.
