Create New Pages


1.

To add a new page of content you will want to click on the “Pages” tab

on the left hand side of the

set up for you).

2.

Once you click on this, there will be a small blue “Add New” link underneath the “Pages” tab. Click
on “Add New

Once you click on this a screen will appear where you can add the page title, page content, SEO
title, keywords and description. You will want to enter your page content under the “Visual” tab

HTML code. The URL of the new page
will be dependent upon what you name the page in the page title field.

4.

When you are editing or creating a new page, you can determine which main navigation item you
would like it categorized under. On the right hand sid
e of the edit screen, there is a box titled
“Page Attributes”. “Parent” pages are the pages that will be the parent of the new “child” page you
are creating. If you are creating a new “parent” page that is okay too. If you are creating a
“parent” page, si
mply do not select a “parent” for this particular page.

5.

To view all of the edit functions available to you in the admin you will want to click on the “Visual”
tab, and then click on the icon called “Show / Hide Kitchen Sink” (looks somewhat like a small
