Clicking on the name of a page in this view will open this page in the  Edit Page  view, which features add, edit and settings buttons above the content, allowing you to make changes to it. To change the page settings, click on the  Page Settings  button next to the page name.

The navigation bars on your site will be automatically populated from the pages shown here, so changes made here will be displayed on your site's navigation.

The CMS is structured in a hierarchy with the home page as the primary page. Therefore, to show any item of content on all pages of your site, add it to the home page and select "show on child pages ". It will then be shown on every page of your website.

Pages that stem from the homepage at the first level form the main menu on most websites. To add a page to the main menu, click the add page button to the right of the home page. To add a page to the sub menu within a section, click the add page button related to that specific page. For example, if you wanted to add a sub page to about us in the example below, you would click the add page button to the right of about us (the second from the top in this example) and the page would then be added to the sub menu of about us .

On many sites an additional navigation area is available for less important links, which you do not need featured in the main menu. To add pages to this menu, first add a page at the top level (by clicking on the add page  button to the right of the home page) and call this new page Information . Set the status of the new page to live but leave all other settings as they are. You can then add the pages to this menu by clicking the add page  button to the right of the Information page.
