Pages are used to organize static, timeless content in a hierarchical structure on your website. We recommend using pages to host information about your unit including program(s) you offer, admission details, funding opportunities and/or any information that will not change frequently.
Add and Edit a Page
To add a page:
- In your Dashboard go to Pages (located on the side navigation menu)
- Click on Add New
To edit an existing page:
- In your Dashboard go to Pages
- A list of page will be displayed. Find your page within the list, or use the search bar to search for it by name.
- Click on the page name to edit the page
Or if the page is already published on the website:
- Find the specific page on the website
- Click on Edit Page located near the top of the browser
There are three possible page layouts for your site, each designed for specific types of content. You can find these options listed to the right of the page editor under Page Layout.
Span6layout (default page layout) is used for all content pages, i.e. any pages that are not top-level pages or program overview pages. This layout accommodates a side navigation menu and an optimal line length for readability.
Span9 layout could be used for displaying a loop query with a side navigation menu.
Span12 layout is used for all section pages, i.e. top-level pages and program overview pages. These pages are very visual and provide an overview of their child pages through the use of modules. Text will be formatted as a span6 layout to accommodate readability best practices through the use of containers (HTML). You can use the built-in section page template by selecting Page Attributes > Template > Featured Landing Page in the page editor. Span12 layouts (without the section page template) could also be used to display a loop query, but without a side navigation menu.
Modifying Page Layout
To centre the text in your featured landing page/full-width page:
- Ensure the full-width page template is selected and that the Page Attribute is using the “Featured Landing Page”
- In the page editor, switch from the “Visual” tab to the “Text” tab located on the top right corner of the editor
- Add the following set of HTML around the text (do not include modules within the divs):
<div class=”span6 offset3″>
