Page Content

Page content is like post content. Both are structured the same way. The difference is in the use. Posts are transitory and are meant to change. Posts are the cool little tidbits that keep people coming back to your site. Pages are for information that is meant to stay the same for a long time.

Creating a page starts off by going to the Dashboard -> Pages -> All Pages.

Add content

Adding content to the template is made faster because the template is formatted with content areas that are waiting to be filled in. The process is rather straightforward.

Once you have inserted the template into your page, the next step is to figure out what content you want to enter first.

There are three widgets used to create the first two content sections.
  1. Title widget used to create a title that can be linked to something
  2. Text Editor widget to control the content beyond just words
  3. Image widget that allows you to add an image with links, captions, and alignment controls.

If you hover over a section, a box outline become visible and a set of controls are made available.

  1. Hamburger – Three lines stacked used to move thing around
  2. Two squares – used to make a copy of the segment
  3. Floppy Disk – Used to save the section you have created to the templates library.
  4. + – a plus adds a new section
  5. X – an X is used to delete a section

The other control is a little pencil icon on the right hand side of an individual widget section that connects to the left side menu content edit area. By clicking in the content you want to edit or by clicking on the pencil icon, you can open the content editor section.
