Creating and editing a basic page

Basic pages make up the majority of most website content. They don’t use a template, and are built using components.

When to make a basic page

A basic page is a great fit for most informational content. Most of your program pages and admissions page will be basic pages, as well as content about your unit.

Before creating a new basic page, consider the pages already on your website. 

  • Do pages about this topic already exist on the site? (Would it be easier for site visitors to find your new content if it were a section on an existing page, rather than a new one?) 
  • Is a basic page the best format for your content? (Would it fit better as a news story, event, student or alumni feature, or work post, for example?)
Access your published pages and drafts and create a new page on your site. (Watch in full-screen for the best view!)
