Creating & Editing Content

Pages

Pages are every webpage you create and can be identified in your Folder Directory by the page icon (page icon). Every site section should have an index page.

To Create a New Page

  1. Using the Menu Bar, click NEW > DEFAULT >  PAGE
  2. Enter a SYSTEM NAME, which corresponds with the URL and appears in the Folder Directory. The system name should be all lower-case and contain no spaces (for example, “index”)
  3. Select a PARENT FOLDER (the folder which will hold your new content) by clicking the folder icon (folder icon) and selecting a Parent Folder. Click CONFIRM to record your selection

To Edit an Existing Page

  1. In the Folder Directory, click on either the page’s name or the page icon (page icon) to the left of it. For example, in the “about” folder at right, both “history” and “index” are among the page names
  2. Click the EDIT tab to open the Page Editor (see below)

Editing Rows and Columns

Rows and columns allow you greater flexibility in how you lay out and organize your page content. See page layout examples

In Cascade Server, all rows will have one or more column contained within them. Rows will stack vertically in the Page Editor (pdf), so the top row in Cascade Server will also be the top row on your page. Columns stack left-to-right within rows, so the topmost column in a row within Cascade Server will be the leftmost column in the row on your page.

If you stack two rows with the same number of columns, the result will be similar to simply having two separate paragraphs within the same row.

To add a row in the Page Editor, click the plus icon (plus icon) located directly beneath the Main Content Area – Row heading. To add a column, click the plus icon icon (plus icon) located to the right of the CONTENT COLUMN field.

Using a Right Column / Feature Column

A Right Column, sometimes referred to as a Feature Column, is a column on the right-hand side of your page with a smaller width than a regular second column. For examples of Right Columns, see the Page Layout Examples section.

There are two options for creating a Right Column.

The first option uses a second column that you have already added (a total of two columns in one row), and changes the second column to a Right Column through the USE SECOND COLUMN AS RIGHT COLUMN UNDER MAIN IMAGE option. Use this option if your banner image extends across your entire screen, as seen in this example.

The second option adds a new column to your page through the Right Column section of the Page Editor, marked with the header. Use this option if your Right Column sits next to your banner image, as seen in this example.
