What are page properties?

In SiteBuilder, the settings you specify in Page properties determine:

  • what the page is called
  • whether the page is displayed in local navigation or not
  • whether the page can be indexed by search engines or not
  • the active page template and its respective options
  • the page contact

View or edit page properties

  1. Browse to the page you wish to edit.
  2. Go to Edit > Edit page properties. You can see properties similar to the following:

    Editing page properties screen

  3. Enter the Page heading – this displays at the top left of the web page (beneath the navigation menu) and in Warwick Search results. Use a descriptive page heading so that a visitor can quickly determine what they can expect to find on the page and whether it's relevant to them. For example:

    English and Italian Literature reading group

    …is a better page heading than:

    Reading group
  4. Enter the title bar caption – this displays in the visitor's web browser window/tab and is indexed by external search engines e.g. Google. Try to keep your title bar caption less than 60 characters.

  5. Enter the link caption – this displays in the local navigation menu.
  6. Specify the page contact – this displays in the page's footer:

    Page contact highlighted in footer

  7. At the right of the Editing page properties screen, you can see Change page template & options. Click the arrow to expand the options and view all available templates.
  8. Expand the Advanced properties section by clicking the arrow. Each property has a help icon; click these for further information.
