Page Editor

Page Editor is where you create and edit pages for your website. You'll be using it if you create a new page in  Page Manager, or click an existing one.

Creating a page

To create a new page, go to Page Manager in the main menu, browse to the folder where you wish to create the page, tap 'New...' at the and select 'Page'.

You'll be greeted with a blank canvas, ready for your next creation!

You'll find the 'Save' button in the top-right corner. Each time you save the page, it'll update on your website soon after. 

Getting started with pages

Page Editor uses a  WYSIWYG editor, which is similar to other document apps you might have used. You'll see a toolbar across the top for things like format, size, colour, lists, etc.

We recommend keeping different font sizes and colours to a minimum. Your content will look best when it's simple and fits in with the rest of your website. You shouldn't need to change the font size for all text, your website will apply some basic styling.

A website template for a page will be selected by default. If you'd like to change it, you'll find the option in the Advanced section.

Inserting content

Tap the green + button at the top to insert something into your page.

  • Media opens Media Manager, which lets you upload a file or find something you've uploaded before, such as an image or audio file.
  • Form, Sectional, Poll and Photo Album, all let you create things without leaving your page, or select an existing item.
  • RSS Feed will let you pull in items from a third party feed.
  • You'll see options for a few third party services which let you easily embed their content. For anything else, choose Embed and try dropping in a URL.
  • If you've got a chunk of HTML you need to paste into your page, HTML Block makes this easy.
  • Share Buttons lets you include buttons for sharing the page to Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp really easily.

For content from other websites, like YouTube, you can also just paste the URL of the YouTube page straight into the WYSIWYG editor. It will automatically convert to an embedded player.

Advanced coding; HTML, JavaScript and CSS

If you know what you're doing with HTML and need to either build a page that way, or drop something into your existing page, you can flip to the Code Editor using the menu in the top-right corner. You can always switch back again at any point.

If you need to include some code in the <head> part of the page, go to the Head HTML/JS/CSS section. This is for people experienced with HTML only, don't say we didn't warn you!

Share a page with other sites

Pages can be shared with other sites in an organisation, using the 'Share page with sites' option.

If you do this, the page will be added to each site's Page Manager in a corresponding folder. The URL must match on each website, so if the folders don't exist, they will be automatically created when the page is saved.

Metadata

The summary and images will be used if the article is tagged in an item added to a Sectional. This allows you to update the properties of the page in one place, while adding it to multiple Sectionals. 

You should note which image will appear when the page is shared with Facebook and Twitter. This can be changed in  Site Settings.

Appearance of a page on Sectionals

This section lists all the sectionals where the page has been added as a tagged item (using Tag to Page).

This could save a user time as the page can easily be removed from sectionals, or live/expiry dates set, without having to go into each individual sectional. 

Comments

A comments section can be added at the bottom of pages, if the  Comments app is enabled for your site. Comments can be enabled per page, and a link is provided to view all submitted comments for the current article. 

Comments must have first been enabled for pages globally in the Comments app (Settings section), before they can be added to an individual page. 

Requiring a person to be logged in to the listener club

You can require that visitors  must be logged into the listener club before they can see the page. They will be presented with a login screen if they're not currently logged in.

Basic password protection

An article can have a basic password protection page, requiring visitors to type the password before the article is visible. The password entry page cannot be customised.
