Customize text, links and images on every web page in your website in an editor similar to Microsoft Word.
Adding custom pages to your website not only makes it more professional looking, but also helps separate you from your competitors with unique information for you and your business in a way that is personal to you.
Editing, Adding, and Deleting Pages
To add a new page, click on the Add New button.
Step 1: Select Page Type
A new window should pop up that will prompt you to choose what kind of page you would like to create, Basic Page, Template Page, Form Page, or a Recruitment Page for Office and MOW accounts.
Step 2: Add Page Information
Here you will fill out the basic page information including the name and url for the page.
*Helpful Hint - when naming your page, to help with SEO, add dashes instead of spaces.
Step 3: Optimize SEO
You have the ability to optimize the following SEO informiaton during page creation:
- Meta-Tag Description
The page will then appear in the Page Manager under the name that you specified.
You will see the gear can icon next to all of the custom pages that you create.
After you have created the page, you can now add content to it by clicking on the Manage Content button. You can edit any page in the page manager, including stock pages, with this tool.
The page should open in another window or tab depending on how you have your browser settings configured.
*Helpful Hint: If the page is opening up in the same window, and you can’t get back to the dashboard, adjust your browser’s New Page settings to specify that you want the link to open in a new tab or window for easier editing options.
The orange Edit Boxes indicate what can be customized within that page.
From here, click on the Edit option at the top right of the section you would like to edit. Another window should open with the content in what we call the WYSIWYG "What You See Is What You Get".
You have many different ways to add and edit the content that you would like on your page. If you have ever used Microsoft Word, this should be fairly easy to use.
You can add photos with custom sizing:
You can change the font preference, type, size, color, highlight color, and style:
You can add and edit tables:
You can add and remove Hyperlinks:
You can adjust paragraph settings:
And so much more!
If you have the HTML format of the content that you would like to add to the page (which is the purest form of information), you have that option as well. Follow the same steps of editing a page, but when you get to the WISWIG, at the bottom left, you should see the options of Design or HTML. Design is the default view, but if you click the tab HTML, it will switch to the HTML friendly editor.
Don’t forget to hitwhen you are done adding the content that you would like.
You should see what you have added to the page, as it will show on your live website, you will also see a message that verifies that you have saved correctly:
To delete a page, click on the gear icon then Delete Page. You can only delete custom pages, not stock pages from Homes.com Connect.
