Create a New Content Page

1. Click the 'Add New' button

To create a new page, click the 'Add New' button. If creating a subpage, make sure to click the parent page in the page tree so the row in that page tree turns light grey. This is to assure the new page will publish as a subpage under the selected parent page.

2. Select Page Type

Content pages are for all general content pages including the Home page. The News page is for a page with a news feed module. Section Landing pages are not content pages and only list links of a landing pages sub pages. A Link page is used to include an external link as a menu item.

3. Select Page Layout

Page Layouts display how posts are organized and broken up on a web page in specific Page Layout Sections. There are often separate page layouts for home, inner, and module pages.

4. Click the 'Add Content Here' button to add a post to a Page Layout Section

In each Page Layout Section, there is a button to add one or more posts to that section. This will open up the Posts List.

5. Select desired post from the Posts List

If the desired post is already saved in the Posts List, click on the 'Existing Post' tab to open the Posts List. Search for the desired post and click on the post's corresponding checkbox to place the post on the page. Repeat steps 4-5 until all desired posts are placed on the page.

6. Add Page Settings

Add the page settings by clicking on the 'Settings' tab above the Page Editor. Add the page title to the 'Title' field. This title also determines the URL of the page. To activate the page, check the 'Active' checkbox. To display the page in the main or sub-page navigation, check the 'Display in Menu' checkbox. Optional settings include Start/End dates which hide/un-hide a page on the website and the Summary which allows the admin to add a custom description for the page. This summary displays when a site visitor shares a page from the website to their social media platforms. Redirect 301s URLS, Restrict Content, and Page Path are managed by the NCBA Web Team. To learn about Restricting Content on pages, go to the Restricting Content section.

There are two ways you can add existing posts to a layout section:

  1. Single
    1. A single post is one you’ve created previously.
  2. Collection
    1. A collection is a filtered list of posts which match a set of criteria. When adding a collection, you can determine the maximum number of posts to display, which tags the posts must have, as well as a date filter.

Note: When adding a single post to a layout section, whether new or existing, you will not be able to also add a collection without removing the single posts first. Conversely, when adding a collection to a layout section, you will not be able to also add single posts to that section until you remove the collection itself. (Removing a collection does not delete the posts visible in the section, but instead will display each of them as an individual post.)

Edit Layout

To edit the page’s layout, click “Edit Layout” in the upper-right portion of the screen. This will give you an option to navigate to a specific section of the current layout or to choose a different layout.

Note: Changing layouts may require you to manually add posts back to certain layout sections.
