Pages are added from 'pages and collections' under the create section of the main menu.
Pages consist of a selection of artefacts which you arrange and present to others. These may include:
- selected files
- CV details
- journal posts
- video and audio files
- social media links
You can re-use artefacts that you create in as many pages as you wish.
How do I create a page?
Pages are created using the Add button on the Portfolio landing page.
This will open a pop up box in which you can choose to create a page or a collection.
Select page, and this will open the add a new page window.
Fill in the details for:
- Page title* - provide a title for your page. If you do not enter a title, the default “Untitled” will appear.
- Page description - write a brief description summarising this page. It will appear on the page itself.
- Tags - enter tags to find your page more easily at a later stage. You can choose from your existing tags by starting to type a letter and then selecting the tag you want to use. You can also type a new tag, and it is added to your list of tags.
Next, click on 'advanced' to open these additional, mostly non-mandatory, page settings.
- Instructions - pages can be set up with instructions that sit at the top of the page rather than needing to use a block for that.
- Lock blocks - lock blocks to a page preventing their deletion from the page by setting this to yes.
- Name display format - choose how you want your name to appear on the page to others.
*These are mandatory fields, all the others can be left blank if you choose.
Select Layout if you want to set a specific layout for this page at the point of creation. This can be done later when adding content to the page. The page will be added with 3 columns by default unless amended.
Finally, click the Save button to save your changes and to continue to the Edit content stage.
