Content pages are pages that you can use to provide information about your organization.

They are actual pages that can:

  • appear on your navigation bar
  • be linked from another page, i.e.: content pages, news articles, or event pages, to this content page
  • contain links to: other content pages, news articles, or event pages
  • hold form iframes for participants to fill out
  • contain images, embedded media and links
  • be edited using html

Example of a content page in a navigation bar:

1. While logged into Admin, go to Manage> CMS

2. Create a new page or select the page which you would like to edit.  Learn about best practice rules for creating and editing content pages.  If you are editing a page, it can help to have the page opened in another tab or window so that you can see live how the changes save.

3. From the page that appears, you can edit the look and feel of your home or other pages very similarly to how you work in other word editors and can also work with the HTML coding for the body of the page. Scroll over the tools to find their description:

4.  Avoid drastically changing the Page Title, as this directly correlates with the page's URL and may become confusing in the future (learn more).  If you need to add new content pages, avoid editing pages you do not need, rather create a new page. 

5. Appears on Side List refers to if the page will appear in the site's main menu. 

6. By clicking Yes for Display on Mobile Site, the page content will be available on the mobile version of your site (~/mobile).  Avoid placing pages with lots of images on your mobile site.

7. Page Location is the sort order of the page, and determines how the main menu is organized as well as how the list in Content > CMS is organized. 

8. Content - type in content here, for more information about adding images and links to your page, see tutorial above.

9. To increase traffic onto your site and help users search your content easily and efficiently, it is wise to write the key words of your article or page into the Keywords field provided at the bottom of the page.  This will also help search engines to identify your page directly, so it is important to add key words to content pages.  You may choose to use the Yahoo Auto Keyword Extractor Tool to derive keywords from your longer pages and articles.

10. Click save after you are finished creating or editing your page.
