Outline

This page contains materials to help you edit content in Drupal. Information can be found on adding content, editing existing content, creating new pages, setting permissions, etc.

Creating New Pages

Every department has a main page, but each subsequent page must be created. Where a page should appear within your architecture determines where it needs to be created. 2nd tier pages should be created from your main page, and 3rd tier pages should be created from the 2nd tier page they supplement. If done properly, your new page will appear in the proper section of your navigation bar.

Adding a Page

  1. Navigate to the parent of the page you are creating.
  2. Find the "Edit Console" in the top left of your window. Click the "Settings" tab.
    • A new list of options appears
  3. Click the "Add sub-page" tab.
  4. Enter a title for you page in the "Title" field. The title should be descriptive because:
    • The page title is what appears at the top of your window.
    • The page title appears in the navigation bar.
    • The page title is used in compiling search results.
  5. Enter a URL in the "URL" field.
    • The URL determines the web address for the page.
  6. Scroll down and click the "Create sub-page" button.
    • The screen now shows your blank page and asks you to add content
