Create section

Standard interface

T4 refers to webpages as Sections. Go to Site structure. Use the blue Actions dropdown menu and select Create section. This adds a page to the site structure. The new page shows at the bottom of the list.

Direct Edit

Login to the page via Direct Edit. In the left menu, select . The Create new page window appears. Provide a Page name and click + Create page.

First tab: General

The Name field in the General tab is what determines the URL of the section.

Output URI

If you use a special character in the section name, use the Output URI field to clean that up. T4 is set to translate spaces in URLs into hyphens. It also ignores special characters.

Example: If the section name is Tuition & Fees, the URL would be translated into tuition--fees. To avoid double-hyphens, go to the  Output URI field and enter tuition-fees. When entering content into the Output URI field always use lowercase and separate words with a hyphen.

You have created the new page. Now to add content.

Second tab: Content

Here is where you will spend most of your time. Here you will create new content, modify existing content, and re-order content in the hierarchy.

Last tab: More

Click the More tab, select Subsections. This menu allows you to re-order sections that live under the one you are in. Use the the four-way arrows icon to move a section up or down in the list. You can also drag and drop to reorder. Be sure to Save changes before leaving the page. If you don't the updated order will not be saved.
