The “Change Settings” area allows you to set all the basic information about the page, as well as several individual page preferences.
To enter the Change Settings area of a page, click the “Change Settings” link in the header of the “Modify Page” or “Manage Sections” area of the page, or click the page's “Settings” icon in the Admin -> Pages -> Modify/Delete Page list.
Once you enter the Change Settings area, you will see the Change Settings header for the page:
The “Manage Sections” link will only show in the header, if this has been enabled in Admin -> Settings -> General Settings -> Show Advanced Options -> Manage Sections (Advanced).
Enter here the title of the page. Depending on the template used, the page title may be displayed in the browser's title bar when the page is being viewed, as well as featuring prominently on the page layout. It may also be used by search engines to help catalogue and classify your page.
Enter here the text that will appear on the navigation menu, to link to this page. By default, this is the same as the page title. This allows you, for instance, to have a home page with a page title of “Welcome”, and a menu title of “Home” - which is clearer than 'Welcome' for navigation purposes. This is also specially useful for abbreviating long page titles, so they display well in the menu.
Use this option to select where in your site's hierarchy you wish to place your page. The 'parent' is the page the visitor usually has to navigate to, before they can reach your page. The page will only appear in your site's navigation menu, when the user is visiting its parent.
If parent is “None”, then the page always appears in the topmost level of your navigation menu - at the same level as your home page.
Note: Deep hierarchies make it harder for visitors to navigate, and to find the information they may be looking for in your site. Some studies suggest, that if a user has to click more than 3 times to find the information he needs, he will abandon the search – and your site. You should try to keep the hierarchy of your site simple, and avoid nesting pages too deeply inside each other.
This menu allows you to specify whether the page will appear in your site's navigation menu, and who will be able to access it. The options are:
Pages with “Registered” visibility can be used as 'teasers' to increase membership in your site: by being present in your navigation menu, all visitors will know that they are there, but that they must register first before being allowed to access it.
By default, every page in your site uses the Website Description – defined in Admin->Settings->General Settings – as its Page Description. You can, however, override the default, and give a page its own, specific description, here.
It should be a short text, briefly and concisely describing your page. Depending on the template used, this text may be displayed as a special information within the page. It may also be inserted as a meta-tag into the html 'head' section of the page. This meta-tag can be used by search engines to help catalogue, describe and list your page in their database.
You should not use html in the page description.
By default, every page in your site uses the Website Keywords – defined in Admin->Settings->General Settings – as its Page Keywords. You can, however, override the default, and give a page its own, specific keywords, here.
This should be a comma-separated list of words, terms and/or expressions that users are going to use in search engines to find your page. This list is added as a meta-tag to the html 'head' section of the page. This meta-tag is used by most search engines to classify your page, and greatly influences how successful your site is in these search engines.
You should not use html in the page keywords.
The order and quantity of keywords does matter. Some search engines will grade how closely a search matches your page, depending on how far down the keywords list the match is found. Most search engines will also shorten your keywords list, if it is too long, to an acceptable length, and ignore repeated entries.
This setting specifies where the visitor's browser should display your page. Options are:
The “New Window” setting can be both appropriate and useful for displaying sites with relevant content such as “terms and conditions”, or the imprint.
By default, all pages in your site use the System Default template specified in Admin->Settings->Default Settings->Template. Here you can override that setting, forcing the pages to use a different template.
WebsiteBaker ships with merely a handful of templates. There are, however, dozens of user-contributed templates, that can be viewed and downloaded from our official Add-ons Repository .
The content, style, and features implemented by template designers vary greatly from template to template. Notice that not all templates display features such as: a log in form, search form, breadcrumbs, site or page descriptions, support for multiple menus, support for section blocks, etc.
The chosen template will dictate the aspect – as well as some of the functionality – of your page.
It is quite easy to customize a template, to add the extra functionality it does not have, and which you may require.
For further information, see the Designer Guide .
Some templates allow you to have more than one navigation menu in your site. This may be useful, for instance, if you would like to have a 'footer menu', with pages such as 'terms & conditions', 'privacy notice', 'copyright notice', 'links', or others, which you may want to show throughout your site, but which are not part of the normal navigation hierarchy of your site.
In order for this feature to work and be useful, you must:
If this feature is enabled, and the template you are using supports multiple menus, then you can select in which menu this page will appear, from this menu.
If the template you are using does not support multiple menus, you may be able to easily modify it and to add the extra menu(s) you want. To find out how, see Designer Guide .
Use this menu to specify in what language the page is written. This information is used by some search engines to classify your page and its contents, and can affect the success rate of users searching for your site.
The language selected here will also affect the text displayed in frontend items such as the login form, or the search form.
WebsiteBaker ships with quite a few languages, 21 at the moment.
This setting specifies whether or not the contents of the page should be searchable. If searching is enabled, then when visitors and users use the search form in the frontend, WB will search through the contents of this page. If searching is disabled, then WB will ignore this page when searching, and it will never be listed among search results.
Disabling searching may be useful for pages such as site maps, site copyright, and terms and conditions pages.
Tick to select the user groups that will be able to modify and delete this page.
