The pages of your website are displayed in the hierarchical “parent/child” format. Notice that all pages are children of the Home page. The direct children of your Home page represent the primary navigation of your website and should not be renamed or repositioned once your website has been published.
To display the children of a parent page, click on the arrow to the left of the page name. This will expand the list of child pages under the parent page, if any exist. If you click on any page name, you will be taken to the Page Edit view of that particular page. If you leave the Page Edit view of a page after making unpublished changes, you will see the word “Modified” in red text after the name of the page, as shown in the image above. To publish those changes, you can return to that page and click the “Publish” button. If you have several modified pages that you want to publish at once, you can click on the “Publish all modified pages” link in the Administrative panel. You can also View deleted pages in this panel.
Tip: You should never delete a page. If a page no longer has relevant content, then it is best to hide the page rather than deleting it. (See page 9 for details on how to hide a page)
Find and Replace
In this example, we are changing the name of our business from Einstein Industries to Einstein Medical. To execute this function, we go to the Pages tab, click on “Find and replace,” enter the appropriate terms into the Find and Replace fields, and click the “Find and replace” button. Next, we review the revised text in the preview that appears below the Find and Replace fields, and click “confirm”.
Tip: Once you have completed the Find and Replace, you will need to publish the pages before your changes will be visible on the live site.
More options appear when you hover over a page name. You can move any child page up or down in relationship to its sibling by clicking the single arrow to the right of the word Published. Clicking the double arrow will move that page to the top of the list. To the right of the sort arrows are four further options. Click the icon to add a child page. To add an external link that is displayed in the navigation like a child page, click the icon. Your EinsteinApps Blog and Gallery are examples of external links. Click the icon to change the name of a page.
Tip: When adding pages, carefully consider which parent, or subject, the new page should fall under.
Adding a Child Page
When adding a child page, first select the Parent page that the Child page will fall under. Next, choose the name of the page and enter it in the “Name” field. Then put the name of the page into the Path field and replace any spaces with hyphens as shown above. Select “default” as the Page and Site templates. Next decide which navigations you want your new page to appear in by putting a check in the box next to that navigation. Adding a new page to your “main” or “utility” navigation should be carefully considered. Put a check mark in the “Published” field and click “Save changes.” You can return to these settings anytime by clicking the “Edit” link in the “Page” view. You can continue to work on a page and hide it from the public by putting a check mark in the “Exclude from nav” checkbox. The “Exclude from site map” check box will also keep pages from appearing in the footer navigation.
Caution! Changing the paths of your pages will result in broken links and can harm your website’s performance in search engines such as Google. Changing the name of the page will not affect your website adversely.
Caution! Moving any parent page may break your site’s navigation. You should only move child pages.
