Making a Page Live on Your HC Website

After the page has been created and the content added, the next step would be to add it to your live website. Not all of the pages within the page manager are viewable on your website from the start, you have to take some time and determine which ones you would like and then add them as you go. To see about Adding Content to Homes Connect Pages, please see the relating article.

There are a few ways to go about adding pages to your website. 

1. You could add the page directly from the page manager, to your main menu:

 

This will also tell you if the page has already been added to the menu or not.

If you are looking to add the page directly to the Main Menu, click Add and you should see a dropdown that shows you all of the “Top Level Items” on your Menu already:

 
          

*Helpful Hint: The page will go on to the dropdown menu on your Home Page with the same name that you have it labeled in the page manager. If you would like to add it to the Main Menu with a different name, please follow option 2.

2. You can add the page from the Menu Builder within the Website App in the Dashboard. For your convenience, the Menu Builder has been added to the Quick Actions Menu at the top right of the Page Manager or you can go back to the Website Overview and choose from there:

 

*Helpful Hint: When adding directly through the Menu Builder Application, you can rename your page in order to have a more personable title to your links. You can also “drag-and-drop” pages to make organizing your website more convenient.

3. You can create a “Quick Link” (or Hyperlink) in a page to another existing page within your page manager.

a. First choose what page you would like to make the link on (in this example I am using the About Me Page) - and click the edit icon

b. Then choose what you would like to turn into a hyper link (I chose an Image), highlight it, and click on the hyperlink option (looks like the globe with a chain in front of it)


c. It will open up another window in which you can choose whether you want to link it to an existing page within your Page Manager or an outside link that you have selected.


d. From there you and name the link and select a “Target” (whether you want the link to open in a new window or tab)

e. Last but not least make sure you hit OK and then Save on the Editors.

*Helpful Hint - If you ever want to remove that link, just highlight what you would like removed and click the icon in the editor that looks like a broken chain.
