Creating More Content

Creating Content
Step 1 of 7

Earlier we created some content without knowing where it would go. Now you have the context of how the site is organized. Next, use the same principles for creating content on the front page to create articles for the About Us page.

On the About Us page, you’ll add information about the Lunar Resort and other related Space Program initiatives.

Creating the About Us Page Content

Recall that you created the Welcome page’s content in Site Administration and then added it to the page. You’ll use a slightly different method to create the About Us page’s content. Specifically, you’ll use the Web Content Display app to create the content directly in that app.

  1. Go to the About Us page.

  2. In the portlet bar of the left column’s Web Content Display app, click the Add button (Add) and select Basic Web Content. This takes you to the app’s web content creation page. The content you create here only appears in this app, on this page.

    Figure 1: You can create basic web content directly in the Web Content Display app.

  3. Enter the following information for the following fields:

    • Title: The Lunar Resort
    • Summary: Information about the Lunar Resort
    • Content: The Lunar Resort is an all-inclusive, one of a kind vacation spot with attractions and activities unlike anything you’ve ever seen or done before.
  4. With your cursor still in the Content field one line below the text you just entered, click the plus button and select the image icon. Select lunar-resort-logo.png.

  5. Resize the image if necessary, then click Publish.

The Web Content Display app in the left column now contains your content.

To add content in the remaining Web Content Display apps, repeat the above steps for each app but add different information in step two, and a different image in step three.

  1. Add this for the Web Content Display app in the middle column:

    • Title: The Space Program
    • Summary: Information about the Space Program
    • Content: The Space Program is our parent company and contains our research, development, and exploration divisions. You can learn more about the Space Program here.
    • Add the image space-program-logo.png.
  2. Add this for the Web Content Display app in the right column:

    • Title: S.P.A.C.E.
    • Summary: Information about S.P.A.C.E.
    • Content: The Space Program Academy of Continuing Education (S.P.A.C.E.) is the Space Program’s educational wing. You can visit its lunar campus during your Lunar Resort stay.
    • Add the image space-logo.png.

Great! The About Us page is now complete and provides all the information that the Lunar Resort’s visitors need.
