The page overview

When working in the editor, you’ll find a Pages button on the top left. This is where you’ll find and can interact with your pages.

We’ll talk about the different options below.

Creating a page

To create a new page, click on the + New Page button.

Next, you’ll be prompted with a pop-up to give the page a name. Based on this name, the page alias (the part that will be visible in the URL) will automatically be created. This alias be adjusted at any time in the Page Settings.

Note: make sure to name the page by using letters or a combination of letters and numbers. When pages are solely numbered, the order of the pages could get mixed up or pages could become invisible on the preview and live publication.

After entering a name, you’ll see an overview of page templates to choose from. 

Using page templates
We’ve divided them into a number of categories. By default, All is selected so you can scroll through all available page templates.

When you select a template, you’ll see the entire page template in its full length on the right side. This allows you to check what the complete page looks like and see if it matches what you’re looking for.

After choosing a template, click on Create page to start working with the template. Our page templates are flexible and can be adjusted in any way.

Starting from scratch
If none of the templates match what you’re looking for, you can choose to Start from scratch.

This will give you an empty canvas that you can start filling with our collection of pre-designed blocks.

Read more about blocks in our article: Pages, blocks, columns, and elements.

After you’ve made your pick, keep in mind that it can take a while before the thumbnail of the page will be visible in the pages overview.

Inserting a page

If you want to insert pages from other publications into your current publication, click on the Copy page from other publication button.

This will prompt you with a selection screen. Here you can either navigate through your projects (previously known as publication groups) or open a complete overview of all your publications, regardless of the project they’re in.

When you’ve found the publication, select the page(s) you want to insert and click on Insert.

Note: keep in mind that overlays connected to a page in another publication will not be copied over.

Deleting a page

When hovering over a page, you’ll find options to delete or duplicate that page. 

When you click the trashcan icon, you’ll be asked if you are sure you want to delete the page. When you click Delete, the page gets deleted permanently. There is no option to retrieve it after it has been deleted. 

Note: it is not possible to delete a page you’re currently on. First move to a different page and then try again.

Duplicating a page

When hovering over a page, you’ll find options to delete or duplicate that page. 

Click on Duplicate to create a copy of that page. It could take a few seconds before the new page is visible in the overview.

Note: Duplicated pages are suffixed with the word “Copy” by default because page names need to be unique.

Renaming a page

When hovering over the name of page you can edit it by clicking on it. 

Note: The page alias doesn’t change automatically update when a page name is edited. The alias can be updated manually through the Page Settings.

Rearranging a page

At the top of the page thumbnail you’ll find a Drag icon. Click on this icon and hold it to drag the page to a different place in the overview. 

Moving between pages

To switch between pages in the editor, open the page overview and click on the page you want to open.
