Adding a New Page

Problem

You want to add a new page to your web site in the WCMS.

Solution

When you add a web page in the WCMS, the page design is already built in and does not need to be changed. Your main responsibility as a contributor in the WCMS is the content in the main content area.

All web sites in the WCMS have regular web pages, but some sites also have specialized pages, such as faculty directories or home pages that have a slightly different design.

To add a new web page:

  1. In the Asset Tree at the left, click on the folder where you want your new page to be stored
  2. Click on New in the top navigation bar, and select Page
  3. Add your content to the page by filling in the fields in the web form
    • In the Title field, type the title that you want to appear in the browser title bar for this page
    • In the Page Title field, type the title that you want to appear at the top of the content on your page
    • In the WYSIWYG Content field, type the content for your page. You must press the Return or Enter key at the end. (See also the information about using the WYSIWYG field.)
  4. Change the System Name (This name will be the name of the HTML file that the WCMS will create for you, and it will become part of the URL.)
    • Do not use the ".html" file name extension. (The correct extension will be added automatically when you publish the page.)
    • Do not use spaces in the name.
    • Do not use punctuation in the name.
    • Do not use capital letters in the name.
  5. Click Submit

Your new page will be saved in the WCMS after you click Submit, but it will not appear in your web site until the page is published.
