Content Page Management Interface

Unlike Widget Pages, Content Pages can only be edited through the Site Builder and cannot be edited live on the page. Any edits that you make to a page are saved as a draft until you publish the page. Subsequent changes after the initial publication are again saved as a draft, without affecting the live page, until the page is published again. To create a Content Page,

  1. Go to Site ManagementSite BuilderPages.

  2. Click Add.

  3. On the next page, select Content Page and provide a name for the page.

    You will be brought to the Content Page management interface.

To edit an existing Content Page,

  1. Go to Site AdministrationSite BuilderPages.

  2. Click Actions (Actions) → Edit next to the Content Page you want to edit.

You can also get to this page by selecting the Edit button (Edit) from the Control Menu if you’re viewing the published Content Page.

On this page you can view a preview of your page, add Fragments and Widgets, and manage the configuration for the page or any Fragments and Widgets currently residing on the page.

Your tools for building the page are all found on the right side of the page. From top to bottom, the options are

Sections

When you open Sections you see a list of Collections available. Initially, you only have the Basic Sections Collection which is included with the product. You can open the Collection and drag Sections directly onto the page.

Once a section is added to a page, you can edit its background color, background image, and spacing. Since these options are available to marketers and administrators editing a page, the options are limited, and the color palette can be set by the Fragment developer.

Section Builder

In Section Builder, you start with Layouts and Basic Components. Add Layouts to the page to provide a spaces where you can add Components.

Widgets

The Widgets section functions just like the Add menu on a Widget Page. The full list of available widgets is displayed, and you can add them to the page.

The main difference is that only the main configuration options for widgets on Content Pages. Various other configurations like Look and Feel are only available for widgets on Widget Pages.

Page Structure

Page Structure provides a high level view of every Fragment and every field within each Fragment on the page.

Clicking on a field in Page Structure will highlight it on the page. On large complicated page, this helps you keep on top of where everything is and also access items that might be hard to click on directly.

Look and Feel

Click the Look and Feel icon (Look and Feel) to change the theme or manage other options for the page. These options are fully documented in Creating Pages.

Comments

You can also comment on any page fragments. This allows discussion and collaboration for teams creating content pages.

Comments are disabled by default, but administrators can enable them from Control PanelConfigurationSystem SettingsPagesContent Page Editor. Select the Comments Enabled checkbox and click Update. This enables content page comments for all instances. To control this on an instance-by-instance basis, navigate to the same setting in Instance Settings (instead of System Settings).

If comments are enabled, you can access them via the Comments icon (Comments). The comments appear for the selected fragment. You can take the following actions in the comments UI for a fragment:

  • Add new comments and reply to any existing ones.
  • Resolve comments by clicking the checkbox for each. Resolving a comment hides it from view, unless Show Resolved Comments is selected.
  • Edit and delete your own comments via the Actions button (Actions) for each.

If you de-select a fragment or enter the comments UI without a fragment selected, a list of the fragments on the page appears with the number of comments for each. Selecting a fragment then shows its comments.
