Jetendo Site Manager - Page Features
Length: 13 minutes 58 Seconds
Feature outline as shown in the video:
- The pages feature should be used for all content that is meant to be permanent and which doesn’t need a custom layout.
- All of the built-in landing pages and custom records are listed at the bottom of manage pages to make it easier to find other content that exists or can be edited.
- You only need to type a title when adding a page. The summary field is shown when the page is shown as a child in its summary view. The body text field is used for the detail view of the page.
- You can sort pages by clicking and dragging the arrow icon.
- You can add child pages to a page and it will automate the creation of links from the parent page to the child page(s).
- Once you create a child page, you can navigate to view/edit the subpages by clicking on “Subpages” or the title of the parent page.
- You can create unlimited child pages and sort them.
- You can attach images to pages and set how they are displayed.
- You can create child pages on an existing child page to make a deeper hierarchy.
- To help visualize the structure of a site that has many child pages, you can click on “Site Map” to see all of the pages with their child pages indented and sorting disabled.
- If you need to move a page to a different location, you can edit the Parent Page field on the Navigation/Layout tab.
- You can change the layout of how the child links appear, or hide them. These child link layouts are automatically mobile responsive.
- You can make the child pages appear unlinked, so that this feature allows building layouts that don’t need the sub-page feature, but otherwise would look good with pages.
- You can restrict a page to only being visible to logged in users of specific user groups. All of the child pages of that page will also be restricted automatically.
- If the listing application is enabled on a site, you can set a listing search and the listings will appear directly below the page content.
- The import feature allows typing a titles on separate lines to make many pages at once.
Advanced Developer Features:
- Developers can “hide” pages so the client can’t view or edit them. This avoids confusion for pages that are placeholders to make the site work, or built-in pages like “home page” which often have a custom way of being edited.
- You can create many pages at once by first creating a specially formatted CSV, which can also automate creating subpages if the IDs and URLs are consistent. The import should only be done once. It is not meant to be used for updating.
- Developers can create a page that is used on a specific page, but that doesn’t have routing enabled. This allows you to create a custom layout for that page. You create a script that works on the same URL to do that. There is a function you can call in order to include the page content where you want in your custom layout.
