Web Tip: Creating a New Page

May 29, 2013

Are you a department editor, and need to place information into a new page?  You have two options 1) create a blog page, or 2) create a new page in the left side menu bar. Blog/Announcements are the optimal choice when you have a lot of information to share. Your blog pages are re-editable, have a unique URL, and people can choose to follow your blog RSS feed which will alert them each time you create a new page.  

However, if there is information that students or employees will continually need to access in order to successfully complete their goals, consider adding a page to the menu bar.

Creating a New Page in the Left Side Menu Bar

First, be certain you actually need a page. Some content may be better as a a blog post/announcement, or as an event for the web calendar.

When you are ready to create the page, log in to the website. Then click the admin toolbar in the upper left.

Click "Create Content > Page"

  • Enter the Title of the page
  • Enter the content of the page under the Body section
  • Select your department from the Section dropdown on the upper right of the page

Save the page, then copy the URL and then notify the web team of the new page and where it needs to be placed if necessary.

The web team will then review and publish the page. You may continue to edit the page as needed.
