Editing Page Settings

Page settings are different from the content on the body of the page. Page settings include the page title, slug, whether the page is published or not, etc. For instructions on how to edit page content, please see the Adding Web Content chapter.

 

  • Page Settings 1 Full

To alter your page settings, go to the page on which you wish to change the settings. Click on the gear in the lower left-hand corner and select PAGE SETTINGS.

  • Page Settings 2 Full


A modal (pop-up window) will appear with all the PAGE SETTINGS. They are as follows: 

Title:

This is the name of the page. This name appears at the top of the page and in the navigation.

Slug:

This is the URL for the page. If you change the URL, be sure to update other pages that may have links to this page.

Type:

This specifies the page type. There are several types of pages that you can create. Below is a list of common page types and their use:

  • Default: this is the most common page type,  and is what you'll probably be creating most of the time
  • Landing: this type of page is used as a homepage for sub-sites. For example, the homepage of academic department websites is a Landing page.
  • Stories Index or Message Index: this type of page is like a library; it stores all the stories or messages you want publish and archive. An example of a Stories Index is F&M Latest News, while an example of a Messages Index is the president's Messages to the Community. Further details about how to create and use these types of pages is covered in the Stories and Messages chapter.
  • Calendar: this type of page lists events. The College Events Calendar is an example of a Calendar page. Further details about how to create and use Calendar pages is covered in the Events chapter.

Published:

This determines whether the page is visible on the website when logged out. Unpublished pages are visible only when you're logged into the CMS. Therefore, leave incomplete pages unpublished. Publish pages when all content is in place.

Show in navigation:

Determines whether the page will display in the breadcrumb navigation. If this field is set to "no" the navigation will not have a link to this page.
