Creating a new webpage in the CMS

Table of contents

  1. Adding a site section
  2. Adding pages directly to the site
  3. Adding and removing editable regions

Your index file (index.pcf) is similar to the chapter overview at the beginning of a chapter in a book. In some instances you may only need this one page. However, if you would like to add pages to the website, there are several ways to do so.

Before creating new web pages, make sure you've gone through The Pages view: how to organize website images, documents, and pages in the CMS.

If you would like to add pages to the site and they require no further organization, you can add additional pages directly.

If you would like to add multiple pages to the site and further organize, you can add site sections, essentially creating chapters in the book that is your website.

File names and page names are case sensitive. use lowercase at all times. If you switch back and forth, this will have repercussions later when you want to share your website with others. Also note for spaces it is generally best practice to use a hyphen ( - ).

Adding a site section

  1. Log in to the CMS by navigating to a page on your website and clicking the Direct Edit link.
  2. Click Content then Pages.

  3. Click New.

  4. Select New Section with Index File.

  5. You will be asked to provide information for this new section. You may give the section a name as well as give the new index file a page name. Note this new index file serves a similar purpose to the index file of your website — it is like the overview page of the site section.
