How to Create a Page

Creating a page is about as easy as typing in any standard word processing application, such as OpenOffice or Microsoft Word. Once a page is created and saved, you can go back and edit as much as you like. Drupal keeps a version history of every page, so don't worry about making mistakes! You can always go back and revert to an earlier version if you think it was better.

  1. Click on "Create Content" (bottom of right sidebar) and then on "Page."
  2. You'll then see a field where you can enter the page title, beneath which is an editing area with a bunch of buttons.


  3. Type in the text area, using the buttons to embolden, italicize, or underline text. It is also possible to insert images and add links, the instructions for which are given on separate How-To pages.
  4. Your page should be added to the website navigation. To do this, click on the "Menu settings" link beneath the Tite field. Then click on the dropdown menu to select the menu in which your page should appear. Finally, type into the "Menu link title" field the text that should constitute the menu link.

    Hint: It's a good idea to keep the menu link title short (see the screenshot below), since the sidebar where it will appear is narrow.


  5. When you're getting close to finishing, click on the "Preview" button at the bottom of the page in order to see how it will look when saved.
  6. Continue editing as necessary (scroll back down to the editing area).
  7. Click on the "Save" button to finalize the change.
