Create a new page

It is very easy to add a new page in the editor. In the Page Tree area click on the button Create Page, after which a new page menu will show up to allow you to add the relevant details.

 

1. Page Name & Page URI (URL)

In this section you can name your new page and decide on its URI (or URL), which is the individual page address. The Page Name is what appears in the page tree navigation in the editor but also the Menu headings and breadcrumbs on the the website navigation.

By default, the URI will automatically complete itself using the page name but it is possible to change it if desired. Note that if you change the page name at any point it will update the URI so if you wish to keep the URI the same despite changing the page name you'll need to manually enter it again after you update the page name. 

Please note that the page URI can only contain lowercase English letters, numbers, underscores and dashes.

 

2. Template Layout

When creating a page you don't have to start from scratch. Under the Template Layout section, it is possible to choose how the new page is going to look - Frontpage, About, Contact, Product/Service, Gallery or Blank.

 

3. SEO

3.1. Page title, keywords and description

It is possible to add elements to each page of the website to aid with search engine optimization. Add a Page Title, Keywords and Description to optimize your website for search engines (remember, keywords are generally no longer a ranking factor for search engines). When you have completed and saved it, make sure you have a H1 headline on the page as well as ALT texts defined for all the page's images and the little yellow warning next to the page title should disappear. 

 

3.2. Don't Index this Page

When this option is enabled, search engines won't index the page, preventing it from being added to their index, and as a result the search results pages.

 

3.3. 301 Redirects

A 301 redirect is a permanent redirect from one URL to another. On this section, it is possible to write one or more URLs to redirect to the page just created. To find more about 301 Redirects, click here.

 

4. Sitemap.xml

The Sitemap is a file that indexes all the URLs on a website. Search engines use it to make sure they have all the right pages indexed and the right structure in place. In this section, it is possible to choose the page priority, how important this page is in relation to other pages on the website, and the Change Frequency (how often the page may change).
