Adding Page Content

You can copy text from just about any source and paste it into the editor, but you may end up with strange results because of all the extra formatting that is also pasted. If you are copying your page content from Word, the styles will be incorrect because Word adds A LOT of extra formatting tags that you do not see but are within the code.

It is best to type directly into the editor or use the “Paste as Plain Text” option in the Editor.

The Page Name field controls the URL for your page. This value should be all lowercase with no spaces or special characters.

The Active and Allow Indexing options control page display. If you turn the Active option off, the page will only be viewable when logged into the CMS. If you turn off Allow Indexing, the page will no longer be visible in search engines (once re-indexed) or internal site searches.

If a page requires a different layout than the default, you can switch the page template using the Master Template field. Select which template you want to change the page from the drop-down.
