Q. How to Create Pages

It is very likely, the most commonly used page/section type in your site will be "Create Page".

Normal pages, which can contain formatted text, lists, tables, and graphical elements such as lines and images. You can also add hyperlinks – links to other pages, sites, or to downloadable files you've placed in your “media” directory.

Editing Pages

To edit a page, log in to your site administration. Select the Pages > Edit option, you will see a list of all of the pages. Select the page you wish to edit and make whatever changes you would like. Be sure to click on the Update Page button in the right column when finished.

Q. Page Administration

Administration of your web pages

The pages administration consists of three main section:

  1. Modify/delete page
  2. Add page
  3. Modify intro page (this section is only visible when Settings -> Intro page is enabled)

General Settings

Depending on the used backend template (see Settings -> Backend-Theme) the pages administration might look a little different.
Pages can be moved at will within their menu level using drag & drop - if drag & drop is enabled at "Admin-Tools -> Javascript Admin -> Reorder pages by the use of drag-and-drop".

Permissions

The available functions displayed in the pages administration depend on the permissions of the user logged in. If a page title is colored black, you have no permission to modify the page. Is the page title colored blue, you have the permission to modify the content of the page.

Subpages

A green plus sign indicates, that this page has one or more subpages. When you click on the plus sign the menu tree expands and the subpages are visible. The plus now changes into a red minus sign. So by clicking on these icons you can show and hide the subpages.

Visibility / Page Title

Each page possesses a page title, which is shown in the header of a browser. The icons alongside the page title display the page's visibility for all visitors of the website. WebsiteBaker knows 5 visibility settings for a given page.

  • Public: The page always appears in the navigation menu – if appropriate - and all visitors are allowed to view it. 
  • Private: Only specific groups are allowed to view this page. The page is included in the navigation menu only after a user from an allowed group has logged in. Anyone trying to access the page directly – by typing the page's url in their browser – will be redirected to a login page.
  • Registered: same as 'Private', with the exception that the page always appears in the navigation menu – if appropriate.
  • Hidden: same as 'Public', with the exception that the page never appears in the navigation menu. The page can still be accessed by users typing the page's url directly in their browser. Useful for pages which you wish to keep outside the navigation hierarchy – such as 'Terms & Conditions', copyright notices, etc.
  • None: The page never appears in the navigation menu, and is not accessible, even if a user directly types the page's url in their browser. It can only be accessed via the pages administration in the backend, which can be useful if you want to modify a page before it is published online.

Menu Title

The menu title is displayed in the website's navigation and also defines the filename of the page. Each page possesses an individual filename.

ID

Each page (and even every section) has an individual ID. This can be useful mainly for Droplets and customizing modules.

Actions

Depending on your permissions, the following actions are availabe from the page administration panel:

 icon settings Settings
Change the page settings.
  Manage Sections
Create, modify and delete the sections of a page. If the icon is grey there is either no section available, the sections are not time-dependent or inactive. If the icon is blue, there is at least one section currently time-dependent active.
  Delete Page
Deletes the page
  Order
Move page up/down (changes the page position in the navigation menu).
Note: Sort of the pages can be done with drag & drop if 'JavaScript Admin' ist enabled in Admin Tools.

Page Type Concept

WebsiteBaker ships with six page type modules highlighted below:

  • Code: allows you to enter and execute PHP code
  • Form: enables you to setup custom forms fo gather information from your visitors
  • Menu Link: allows to add hyperlinks to external pages which appear in the navigation menu
  • News: kind of blog which allows you to post articles for others to read
  • Wrapper: allows you to embed an external page or site into your website's page
  • Create Page: graphical text editor for adding text, images, hyperlinks ...

The page type needs to be choosen when adding a new page. Depending on the chosen type, different settings and features are available.

Forms


Q. What Are Forms

A “Form” page/section enables you to set up a custom form to gather information from your visitors and users. The information is gathered through textfields, checkboxes, radio buttons, drop-down menus, and other interface items, which you specify, and sent to an email address of your choice. Submissions are stored in the database and can be viewed in the backend administration. The form may optionally contain a captcha, to help avoid spamming.

The Form Editor has two main buttons - “Add Field” and “Settings” - as well as 2 sub-sections - “Modify/Delete Field” and “Submissions”.
