This guide will outline how to create a new page on your website in Easy Sites and the associated page types available.
Login to your Easy Sites account
Let's start by navigating to www.easysites.uk and clicking the login button at the top right of the page. Once pressed you will be presented with a Login Screen where you can enter the username and password provided by Easy Domains. If you do not have access to your username and password please follow our Forgot Password tutorial.
Once you have logged in you will be presented with a list of your domain names and websites. You will need to click "Edit Site" under the website that you wish to update.
Creating a page
You will be presented with a list of your existing website pages. To begin creating a page, simply click the "Create Page" button.
You will be presented with a popup window asking you to enter your page name and page type along with a few other options, depending on the page type.
What does this all mean?
Page Name: Your page name is simply the name of the page you wish to create. This will be displayed on the navigation and on the footer.
Page Type: You currently have 8 page types to choose from: Page, URL Link, News Feed, News Post, Placeholder, Footer Navigation, Mobile Feed and Reviews Page:
- Page: The default page type and one you will likely use the most.
- URL Link: Create a link to another internal page or external website.
- News Feed: A placeholder page to populate the feed for a blog.
- News Post: A post that will be added to the blog feed.
- Placeholder: A non-clickable link and can be used as a dropdown/heading.
- Footer Navigation: A link that will only be included on the footer.
- Mobile Feed: A page populated with uploads from your mobile.
- Reviews Page: A dedicated page to allow users to post reviews to your website.
Page Options: These are the options associated with each individual page type:
- Custom URL: You can set a custom URL that is different from your page name.
- Target URL: The URL of the page/website users will be redirected to.
- Target Window: You can choose to set either Same or New Window for the redirect.
Your main navigation page names should be kept short and concise to draw focus to your main subjects or service areas. Dropdown menus can be created to expand on your main subjects. If you're a used car dealer - eg. Used Cars - Dropdown: Audi, BMW, Citroen, Ford, etc.
This is the most popular example of how a dropdown can be used to highlight your primary and secondary navigation. You can alternatively create any number of hidden pages and link to them in the content of a primary navigation page.
We're more than happy to talk you through the ways in which you can link to pages and which would be best for your website/business.
