4 Step 3 - Wepages
Your website is made up of a number of separate webpages all linked together in a way that allows you to display information and your customers to access information . The most important webpage is your home page. The home page is the first page that your customers will see when they visit your website.
There are just 4 basic activities you need to undertake to create and manage your website. To need to be able to:
All the webpage management activities take place in step3. The access the webpage management functionality, simply login and click the step3 button at the top of you screen.
4.2 The webpage management screen
After clicking step 3 you will see a screen that looks similar to the one shown. Each webpage appears as a separate line in the table.
You can name each page anything you like but the home page must always be called 'Home'. You website will initially look for the home page when your visitor firsts visits.
There are 4 further columns in this table (Settings, Hide, Show Groups and Delete). Each of these will be explained in more detail within the Change the Webpage settings section later. In brief the functionality is summarized below
Settings - allows you to change all the various settings for the webpage.
Hide - allows you to hide the page or force the visitor to click a link to see the page
Show Groups - displays the product category buttons (RIGHT buttons)
Delete - deletes the page
Finally there is an input field at the bottom of the screen that enables you to create a new webpage.
To create a webpage:
Once you have created a webpage you will see that a new line appears in the webpage table and a new button appears on your website:
It is simple to delete a webpage. However, this is a permanent activity and once deleted, data cannot be recovered.
To delete a webpage
Login to your website
Click the step3 button
Click on the [Delete] icon to delete the entire webpage and all its content.
You will then be prompted to confirm this deletion. If you wish to proceed click the blue tick.
Once you have deleted the webpage you will see that the webpage will no longer appear in the webpages table when you click step3 and the navigation button for this webpage has been removed from your website.
Note about deleting the Home-page
If you try and delete the [ Home ] page the system will present you with a warning and not allow this actioned to be performed.
There are a number of settings that you can change on each of your webpages. To change any of these settings you can either click the settings icon for the webpage you wish to change or click either the [ Hide] or the [ Show Groups] Icons for the webpage you wish to change.
If you click any of these icons, the following screen is displayed:
If you wish to change the name of the webpage without removing the content and starting again simply edit the name in the box.
Because of the size of the button and the limited space available the page name must be less than 16 characters.
Note on changing the name of the HOME page.
Caution should be exercised when modifying the name of the home page. Our system WILL allow you to rename your webpage. However, if your site remains without a webpage named ' Home ' our system will add the following image to your home page:
By default all webpages on your website will be displayed in the order in which they were created. This may not be ideal, for example you may wish to create a new page that appears at the top of the list.
The system makes it possible to do this by allowing you to change the value of a parameter called [Position in List].
It is important to understand that system applies the following rule when ordering the buttons :
All new webpages created are created with a [Position in List] value of '1'.
It is important to note that the system will apply a relative weighting to the order of the webpages. (for example if there are three buttons having [Position in List] values of 5,6 and 7 respectively then a new webpage created with a [Position in list] value of say '4' would appear at the top of the list because it is the lowest number, not at position 4 as you might expect.
Every time you create a new webpage a navigation button appears on your site that allows your visitors to see the webpage you have created.
However, there may be situations where you do not want all you pages displayed.
For example you may have a Special Offer or seasonal page that is only displayed for a specific period of time. If you have lots of pages you may not want a long list of pages cluttering up all your webpages. You might wish to create a 'User Journey' that forces the user to view pages in a certain order.
In such cases you will want to Hide the webpage and suppress the creation of a webpage button for that page.
It is simple to do this. Just click the radio button as shown below
This section is only really relevant if you have purchased a Gold or Platinum package and have added products or items into categories in Step 4.
If you click the tick box :
All the groups that you have created and elected to show will be displayed on this webpage.
You have full control over the content that you display on your webpages. You can login to your site and update the content as often as you wish.
There is a powerful editor that lets you to modify the content without any programming or HTML skills.
To edit a webpage:
If there is already information in the page, this will appear inside an editing window. You can then use the functional buttons within the editor to change the look and the feel of the content.
