Inner pages

Manage the content of your website's pages and the order in which they appear on the navbar and in the menus.

Manage Pages

From the menu on the left select Manage Pages > Inner Pages.

Page structure

Before you start creating your web pages you need to understand how the page structure works. Your website contains 3 different page levels.

  • Top Level pages

  • Child pages

  • Sub pages

The Top Level pages will make up your main navigation bar. Child pages appear in the menu underneath the top level. Sub pages appear in a fly out menu beside the child pages.

Whenever you create a page (top-level, child or sub), if you've selected Include In Navigation it will appear as a menu item. However, when you add a child or sub level page, then the level above it becomes a "menu placeholder" and any content on that page will not be displayed.

For example in the image above, the Child Page CPD contains no information as it is a menu placeholder for the CPD Information and CPD Log Sub Pages.

Child and sub pages

To create a Child Page, click the Child Pages button to the right of the Top Level page title you want the Child Page to appear under. In the next screen, click the New Page Below button.

Once you've created the Child Page, follow the above steps to enter the Page Details and save the page.

The process to create a Sub Page is similar to creating a Child Page. From the Child Page screen, click the Child Pages button to the right of the Child page you want the Sub Page to appear under.

In the next screen, click the New Page Below button.

Once you've created the Sub Page, complete the Page Details and save the page.

Create Pages

To create your Top Level pages, click the New Top Level Page button.

Page details

In the Page Details box, enter the title into the Page Title and Menu Text fields.

To assist with search engine optimisation enter keywords relevant to the page into the Meta Keywords field.

To include the page in the main navigation, make sure you click Yes in the Include in Navigation field.

Member only pages

To make a page accessible only to members, check the Requires Login box in the Page Details section.

Member only pages can also be locked so only particular membership types can access them.

Once the Requires Login box is checked, the Restrict Access To field appears and you can select the relevant membership types from the dropdown.

IMPORTANT: Administrators accessing any locked/member only pages on the public website must also be logged into admin in order to view locked pages.

The Page Details box is also used to define the type of navigation used on your site.

Standard Navigation

The standard navigation displays a dropdown menu for any child pages created under a top-level page, with a fly-out menu for any sub-pages under a child page.

Inline Navigation

Inline navigation displays a secondary navigation bar under the page banner on a top-level page for any child pages created under the top-level page.

Once you've entered the Page Details, click Save.

Page Content

Video tutorial: Using the content editor

Add content to your page in the Content box. The Content box uses a What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG) editor with a number of in-built formatting options, if you wish to create more complex content you can also work directly in the source code.

Modules

Pages can be general web content or they can be linked to modules for system functionality such as the online joining form or discussion forums.

Online Joining Form

Using content categories to split module pages

Content Categories can be used to filter and split module pages into multiple categories. For example, if you have webinars and face to face workshops listed on your events calendar you can add one of these as a Content Category to each individual event when you set them up.

You can then create two separate module pages and apply each Content Category so that webinars are displayed in one events calendar on your website and face to face workshops are listed in another events calendar on a separate page.

To do this, firstly create your page as normal.

In the Page Details section, click on the Content Category field and select the relevant option.

Select the required module and click Save.

IMPORTANT: If you are using Content Categories to allow users to filter the Events Calendar by these categories, then Content Categories must be applied to ALL events.

If some events do not have a Content Category applied, they will not be visible on the Events Calendar.
