Web Pages

Note: Until recently, Web Pages were referred to as "General Pages," so you may have heard this term in passing. Other than the change in name, the pages and forms to edit them should function the same.

Web Pages are the primary content type that you will use to create all pages in your Drupal site. The Main Content Area is where you will do a majority of your text input and edits.  It consists of the Top Hero Media Content, the Primary Body, Main Related Content, Main Syndicated Content, Bottom Hero Media Content, and the Secondary Body. In this area of the Web Page, there are two required fields, Page Title and URL Alias. Web Pages are the primary content type that you will use to create all pages in your Drupal site.

Creating a Web Page

1. To create a new Web page, select Add Content in Drupal's left navigation.

2. Select Web Page.

 

Content Areas on a Web Page

Enter a name for the page in the Page Title (required) field. This title will appear at the top of the page and at the top of the browser.

If desired, enter a Subtitle for the page. This information will appear directly below the title of the page.

The Top Hero Media Content area allows authors to add content that will appear directly below the title and subtitle of the page. This area can contain an image, a video, an image gallery, or a video gallery. (For more detailed instructions, see the Media Types section of this documentation.)

Primary Body is the main content area and appears toward the top of the page. Use the WYSIWYG editor to add images and add and format text in this area.

Main Related Content contains references to other content related to the current page. The list can point to external links or to internal pages, but you can only point to internal pages that have already been created and approved for publishing. 

  • Using the provided code (<h2>Related <a href="">Content</a></h2>), add a title and URL to which the Block Header should link.
  • Under Main Related Content, add the internal site pages or external links that you've added as nodes.
  • Using the provided code (<div class="module_more_link"><a href="">More</a></div>), add Block Footer text and a URL to which it should link.

Main Syndicated Content takes the URL for remote content. For example, add an RSS feed of events to have the results display in the main content area of the page.

  • Using the provided code (<h2>Related <a href="">Content</a></h2>) add a title and URL to which the Block Header should link.
  • Under Type (required), select HTML or RSS from the dropdown.
  • In the URL field, add the feed URL for the remote content (note - the URL should be specifically for the HTML or RSS feed, not the URL of the page containing the feed items).
  • Using the provided code (<div class="module_more_link"><a href="">More</a></div>), add Block Footer text and a URL to which it should link.

Bottom Hero Media Content allows authors to add content to the region of the page that appears directly below the title and subtitle. This area can contain an image, a video, an image gallery, or a video gallery. (For more detailed instructions, see the media types section of this documentation.)

Secondary Body is an additional text area that appears toward the bottom of the page. To add related links and a list of links to more information to this page, use code snippets.

URL alias (required) is the name for your page that will appear in its URL. For example, type "about" when writing an about page. Note: Use a relative path and don't add spaces or a trailing slash or the URL alias won't work. URL aliases should contain only letters, numbers, dashes and forward slashes and should be lower case.

Publishing Options allows you to set the state of the page: Draft, Needs Review, Published. Once you've selected a state, click Save to save your page. 

To Edit your page, use the New Draft button at the top right of the newly created page.
