How to Create a URL page and How They Work

In this tutorial we will walk you through how to create a URL page and explain how they really work.

What is a URL page?

A URL page is a type of page that appears on your navigation menu, but it’s actually a link out to an external URL. This can be a booking platform, an e-commerce platform or any link of your choice.

For example, our main website has a link out to Easy Sites, which opens out in another window:

Step 1

To add a new URL page, you will first need to start by logging into Easy Sites and finding the website you want to edit. If you encounter any issues with this step, please simply get in touch and we’ll be more than happy to help.

Step 2

From the default Pages menu, bring up the Create a Page pop-up window by clicking the “+ Create” button on the top left.

Step 3

Use the dropdown menu to change the Page Type to “URL Link

Step 4

You will then be presented with the following window, which I’ve filled out as an example:

Aside from self-explanatory fields such as Page Name and the Target URL, the additional dropdown on the bottom allows you to toggle whether this new page is opened in your current tab, or a completely new tab.

Thought it's more convenient to have the new page open in your current tab, please bear in mind that this will also mean that they'll be leaving your website when they click on the link.

Step 5

When all fields have been completed, the “+ Create URL” button will allow you to save your changes and add the page.

You should receive a notification on the top right of your screen to let you know that the page has been successfully added. Don’t forget to toggle the visibility of your new URL page and if required, re-order it into your existing pages.
