Create a page

Sitebuilder automatically defaults to a basic page template.

  • Create a unique URL for this page which is short and meaningful – it must be all lowercase with no gaps or special characters although numbers and underscores can be used. It is a good idea to have consistent naming convention, eg student surname and initial or initial and then surname
  • Type in the title of your page in Page heading and then copy [Ctrl + C] and paste [Ctrl + V] it into the Title bar caption (tab in Internet Explorer) and the Link caption (tab on website).
  • Show in local navigation (shows in tabs above when on a different page). If you deselect this then no tab will show and you will need a link to this page from another page.
  • Allow search engines – decide if the page is private or not.
  • Keywords - these are used by search engines so can maximise the search potential of your website.
  • Additional options, eg span right hand side – automatically defaults to this option.
  • Click Create new page which will take you back to your live page. You are now ready to add content to the page.
