Adjusting Page Information

It is quite easy to adjust page information, including the page title.  There is more than one way to go about it.

The URL of the page is determined based on the page information -- as well as overall website configuration.

Page Information

Sample page information screen

The page information screen is where you configure settings for the page, including:

  • Page Title: Typically used in browser title as well as to define the URL for the page. (you cannot define a page without a page title... This is a required field)
  • Hide Page: If your page is not ready for public view for any reason, you may want to "hide" the page.  The default for a new page is hidden.
  • Page Type: In most cases, the default "standard" page type is what you would use.
  • Hide in menu: This can be useful if your website uses automated menus.  Sometimes a page needs to be available but should not appear in menus and sitemaps for some reason.
  • Start/Stop: If for some reason, you have a temporary page that needs to appear /disappear on a particular date, you would indicate the time/date for it to start/stop here.
  • Target: Typically automated menus link from one page on the website to another without opening a new window.  If you want this page to always be opened in a new window, place the work "_blank" (no quotes) in the Target: field.

Adjust any of these settings and then save the page information using the small disk icons at the top or bottom of the page.

Different types of pages

Depending on the page type for the page, you may see additional fields in the Page Information screen.  If you change the type for an existing content element, you may see some fields disappear and other fields appear (note: usually, you can change type back to what it was before and find old data still there!).

Type: Advanced -- Sometimes there is a need to adjust additional information associated with a page.  For instance, when using a Subpage automatic menu, you may want to include an abstract for the page.  You will need to set the page type to Advanced in order to adjust the abstract field.

Type: External URL -- This will create an extra page in automatic menus -- only redirecting to the URL of your choice. 

Type: Shortcut -- This will create an extra page in automatic menus -- only redirecting to another page on the website.

Type: Spacer -- This will create an extra page in automatic menus -- only without any link.  Thus, it is used for spacing or to mark menu subsections. To create a blank space in the automatic menu, make the title " " (with no quotes). To create a subsection marker, put your desired text in the title field.

Type: Direct Mail -- This is a special page type used to send emails through the website. More details are available on this website about how to setup and send your e-news website page.

Note: The e-news feature must be installed on your system to utilize the "Direct Mail" feature. If it is not yet installed on your system, please contact your web developer.
