Create a New Page (Advanced)
In addition to the Basic Settings, there are a number of optional
Advanced Settings that you can use when creating a new page.
All of these settings are optional!
1. Click the Add button on the Control Panel.
Configure the Basic Settings as you learned in the previous
tutorial Create a Page (Basic).
2. (Optional Step) If you want your new Page
to have the same modules on it as another page in your website you can
specify which page to Copy Modules From. Select the page
from the dropdown list.
3. (Optional Step) Check Copy Content if
you want the Modules on your new Page to "mirror" the
modules on the page you copied from.
This means that any change to the module content on either the
copied page or your new page will be reflected in both!
Start Date and End Date
4. (Optional Step) Enter a Start Date
and/or End Date for when the Page should be visible.
Visitors to your website will not see this page or its Menu item
until that future date. If an End Date is specified the
page will stop being visible to website visitors on that date.
Both fields are normally blank (so the page is always visible).
5. (Optional Step) The default Link Type
for a Page is None, pages are not normally links.
But you can select a different link type so that your Menu item behaves
differently. We'll look briefly at each type below. You can
select only one.
Specify the URL Link Type. The Settings page will
update and provide you with a field to type in the URL. The
Menu item that is created by these page settings will open the URL
that you type in this field (instead of a page with with modules).
Specify the Page Link Type. The Settings page
will update and provide you with a dropdown list of the pages on your
website. The Menu item that is created by these page
settings will open this page instead of a new one. This makes it
possible for you to have more than one menu item that opens the same
Specify the File Link Type. The Settings page
will update and provide you with dropdown lists to specify the folder
and filename on your website. The Menu item that is created
by these page settings will open this file instead of a traditional
page. This makes it possible for you to have a menu item that
opens a document or an image.
6. When you have finished with these steps, scroll to the bottom of
the page and click Update to save your changes!
