Create a new page in a folder

  • Navigate to the new page's destination in the site tree at left (which folder do you want the page in?).
  • Select New from the navigation bar, then Page.
    select new page from navigation bar

Indexing

  • Select the System tab, and enter index as the system name for your page if this is going to be the default page for the folder you've placed it in. If this is a secondary page, give it another name consisting of only lowercase letters and dashes (-). *Important* A space before or after a folder name will break a link in a browser.
