Posted in by

After you have logged in, from the Dashboard mouse over the “Content” tab and in the drop down menu click on “Pages”.

  • Before you click on the “Add New Content” button. If you want to create a page with a similar format as another page, just mouse over the icon on the far right side of the screen that looks like two sheets of paper. If you hold your courser over this icon it will read “Copy”, click on this icon to create a duplicate page.
  • If you want to create and entirely new page, click on the “Add New Content” button near the top of all of the page titles.
  • Under the field labeled “Title:” input the title for the name of the page.
  • Under the “Menu Text:” field input the name of the page as you want it to appear in your CMS pages directory.
  • For the “Parent” drop down menu only select one of your other pages if you want this new page to be a sub page or “child” of another page.
  • Now you can paste in the content from a word document into the “Content*:” field. You have to click on the 4th icon from the left in the top row.
  • Once you have entered the content you can hit “Apply” to process your changes or you can hit “Submit.” Hitting Apply will allow you to make changes and continue to keep editing. Hitting Submit will process your changes and shoot you back to the Pages directory.
