Creating a Page

To create a page from File Browser

From the LiveWhale interface, click the “Pages” tab. (If the Pages tab does not appear, the administrator has not assigned page editing permissions to you.)

You will see a file system browser allowing you to navigate to the directory in which your new page should live.

Once you’re in the directory where your new page should be, click the “Add a new page here” button. (If the button does not exist, an administrator has not assigned page creation permissions to you.)

On the “Add Page” screen, fill out the form to create a new page.

  • Provide a page title. This is required.
  • Enter the file name within the path provided. Note: when typing the name of your page in the title, the Page URL will auto-fill with appropriate underscores (“_”) where there are spaces to make the URL friendly.
  • Creating new web pages in LiveWhale requires the existence of templates to use as the basis for new page. Under “Choose template”, select the template you wish to use for your new page. (If no templates are available, see “Adding a page template”)
  • If you wish to clear the editable regions on your new page, check the box that says “Clear content from editable regions”. Otherwise, leave it unchecked, and you’ll be able to modify the content when editing your new page.
  • Set optional description and keywords for the page. This will be added as a meta tag to the web page for improved indexing in search engines.
  • Use the tags field to tag the page.
  • If you wish to receive a notification when this page is edited, check the box labeled “Subscribe to notifications about changes to this page”.
  • If you want LiveWhale to periodically send editors a reminder to update this page, check the checkbox labeled “Send editors a reminder to update this page”. Choose the schedule upon which you wish to be notified to update this page’s content from the dropdown (weekly, monthly, yearly). After choosing a schedule option, also choose the date to count from (for example, monthly from this Monday), as well as the users who should be notified. You may either choose “all editors for this page” to have the notification sent to all editors with access, or choose “an e-mail address” to specify a specific e-mail address to send to.

To save the new page and return to the LiveWhale interface, click “Save these changes”. If you wish to edit your page right away, click “Save changes and view page”.
