Page page icon

Pages are one of the most important asset types in the system. Pages publish HTML (hypertext markup language) to the website in addition to other formats. The "look and feel" of a page is defined by a the centrally-managed homepage template but the content is defined by your needs.There are four types of pages:

  • The "config" page controls some structural elements of your site. This is your administration page for your site and lets you manage elements such as the name of your site. This page is automatically created for you.
  • The "features" page allows you to highlight three areas of your site. This page s automatically created for you but can be enabled or disabled by you.
  • The "index" page is a structural element required by all websites. It acts as the landing page for each site.
  • The Page wizard lets you create all your other webpages with ease. Each page you create is automatically added to the navigation for your site.
