How to Make a New Page

Creating a new page on the SKEA website is mainly just a matter of picking a title for the page and then typing in the text you want on the page. Headers and footers will be automatically added. There are some settings for the menu and breadcrumb, which are described below.

  1. First login, if you haven't already (click "login" in the footer of any page)
  2. Look for the menu box at the bottom of the page just below your name
  3. Do you want the new page to have a photo at the top? If so, click "Create Content > Page with Top Photo"
  4. Or do you want a plain page? (good for longer pages and lists where you don't have room for a photo at the top)
    In that case, click "Create Content > Page Plain"
  5. Follow the instructions below

Details about each field on the "new page" form

The fields marked by a * are required.

  1. Title *
    Type in a title for the page. The Title will appear in two places: at the top of your web browser window, and at the top of the new page, just below the breadcrumb.
  2. [Fields for "Page with Top Photo"]
    • Top Photo: * upload the photo you want at the top of this page
    • Intro Title: a sub-heading for Intro Body (optional)
    • Intro Body: * a few lines of text that will be placed to the right of the photo
    • Additional Body: you can leave this blank if all your text fits into the Intro Body. Otherwise, type in the text for the rest of the page here. To format the text, make links, and add photos, see Using HTML on your page.
  3. [Fields for "Page Plain"]
    • Body: * type in the text for the page here. To format the text, make links, and add photos, see Using HTML on your page.
  4. Input Format Ignore this field.
  5. Menu Settings *
    This sets the path for the breadcrumbs.
    1. Menu Link Title: type in the Title (same as #1 above), shortened or abbreviated as desired
    2. Parent Item: Choose this page's "parent" page, such as "Art Camps" or "About" or "Home".
      Note: choosing "Primary links" will a link into the menu that appears at the top and bottom of every page, so use this with caution.
    3. Weight: Ignore this field

  6. Revision Information
    This is used to keep track of changes on the page, who made them, and when. You can ignore this when making a new page.
  7. File attachments
    Use this section to upload a photo or file (like PDF) for your page. First click "Browse..." and locate the file/photo on your computer. Then click "Attach" to upload it. Once it's been uploaded, you will see the file's URL underneath the Description box -- it begins with "http://" You will be using everything after to embed a photo into your page (i.e., "/sites/default/files/blue.jpg") See Using HTML on your page for how to embed a photo. If you just want users to see a link to the file you uploaded at the bottom of this page, then leave "List" checked. Otherwise, un-check it.
  8. URL Path Settings *
    This section sets the URL (URL = web page address) to a name instead of a number. By default, a URL will be generated for you, using the Title. If you want to make your own URL (because the title is too long, or any other reason) just un-check "Automatic alias" and type something into the box, such as "uke_classes" (no spaces allowed).
  9. Authoring Information
    Ignore this field (it will automatically make you the author of the page.)
  10. Publishing options
    You can un-check "Published" if you want to make the page unavailable to the public. Editors will still be able to view it.
  11. Save *
    Click Save to save your entries. Note that "Preview" is the same as clicking the View tab at the top after you have saved, so it's not that useful.
