What belongs on a landing page?
Think of a landing page as a mini-homepage for each section. It should give useful context for the topics a site visitor can find in that section, and link to pages within that section.
Creating a landing page
It should be rare that a site editor needs to create a landing page on an FAA unit site. The only likely need would be if your unit is reorganizing your website and creating a new section.
To create a landing page:
- Hover over Pages in the Dashboard menu and select Add New. A template for a new basic page will load.
- In the Page Attributes section, select Landing Page in the Template dropdown menu. The page will reload with the template for a landing page.
- Give your page a title.
- As topmost pages in a section, landing pages do not need a “parent page” under Page Attributes.
- Under Publish, select Publish.
Editing a landing page
To edit an existing landing page:
- Hover over Pages in the Dashboard menu and select All Pages. You will see a list of all basic pages, landing pages, and listing pages on your website.
- Find the landing page you want to edit. You can do this by searching for the page title or scrolling through the list.
- Hover over the name of the page and select Edit.
- Make the changes.
- Click Update to save your changes.
Standard fields on a landing page
The Introduction section on a landing page includes a hero image (a horizontal, high-impact image that appears at the top of the page), alt text for that image, and an optional introductory text section.
The rest of the page is built using components.
