This guide walks you through the basics of editing pages and working with modules.
Selecting a page to edit
Whether you are editing your Homepage or one of your site's interior pages, the process is the same:
- Go to your Site Center, click the page you would like to edit.
- Click the Edit button.
- The 'editing view' of the selected page is displayed, allowing you to edit the modules.
- Depending on the homepage template selected, you may find that several modules are already posted to the page.
- These modules are pre-set in the Homepage as part of the template.
- There are also customizable sections as seen in the screenshot below.
- Snap templates are fully editable.
- Click within the Customizable Columns to add new modules, or click one of the preset modules to begin editing that module.
When editing all pages other than the Homepage, the page starts out blank:
- Hover over the blank space where a column should be, and a highlighted box appears where you can add a module.
- Click the empty box to select the empty column and add your first module.
Adding Modules: The Module Window
When you add a new module, you will see a window asking you to select a module type, as follows:
The Text module is a good option for your first module providing a rich text editor.
For information on your options, see the article on Modules and their Functions
Working with Modules
To get started, see this Easy Start Guide on working with modules. Below is a brief overview of Modules:
- Modules can be added in the following ways:
- To empty columns (as described in the 'Adding Modules' section of this guide).
- Added above or below other modules, or
- Dragged and dropped into other positions.
- When a module is selected, look for options to edit in two places:
- Within the body of the module itself, or
- In the toolbar that appears at the top of the page when the module is selected.
- The below screenshot shows where to find the options and settings when working with modules:
Saving Drafts and Publishing
At the top right corner of your edit page (as seen in the screenshot below) the following options to save or publish your work are available:
The following table provides a description of each option:
|Download||Saves a copy of the page as a file. Rarely used.|
|Preview||Displays a preview of what the current draft will look live.|
|Publish||Publishes your current draft to display live on your site and returns you to Site Center.|
|Save Draft||Saves your current work as a draft, without publishing, and returns you to Site Center.|
|Cancel||Discards all information in the current draft and returns you to Site Center.|
|?||Allows you to search the Help Center.|
Working with Drafts
Here are some recommendations and information regarding drafts (see the screenshot below for more information):
- As you work within the page, click Save Draft anytime you would like to save your work, but not publish your changes.
- When you return to the Site Center, the date of the current draft appears above the date of the most current published version.
- Cancel the current draft and return to the most recently published version if required:
- When a draft is active, you can return to the Edit screen to resume your work.
- Clicking Cancel within the Edit screen cancels any new work and returns you to the most currently saved draft.
- To fully cancel the draft and return to the last published version, go to the Site Center and click Cancel Draft.
Closing the Edit screen
- To close the Edit screen, click any of these three buttons:
- Save Draft
- This closes the screen and returns you to the Site Center.
- Any changes on the page are automatically saved as drafts.
- If you fail to close the Edit screen properly, the page is displayed the next time you log in and are prompted to Publish, Save Draft, or Cancel the latest auto-saved draft.
Publishing your page
Click Publish when your page is ready.
