Customizing your page's url

If you have created a new page, you need to customize the url:

At very bottom of page under Body field, Uncheck “Generate automatic URL alias” box and manually type in your custom url path in the URL Alias Box below.  Do not put a / in front.

Example: You’ve created an Our Team page under About section of your site.  Your url path could be entered in the field like this:  (no / in front of the first word, all lowercase)

Example: You've created a new primary navigation menu item called About. Your url path could be entered in the field like this:  (no / in front of the first word, all lowercase)

**If you saved the page first and forgot to change the url path:

  • Click Content on top bar
  • Click edit next to that page title
  • Scroll down to bottom left sidebar – click “URL Path Settings”
  • Change url path

Click Save at bottom

Unpublishing a Page

By default, when you create a page and click Save, the page is published and "live."

If you added the page to a menu, then the public can find your page right away on the navigation menu.

If you did not provide a menu link, the page is live, but no one will be able to find it on your navigation menu. A person could access it via search or by having the direct url link.

Publishing Options

If you are working on a draft and would rather keep the page unpublished, click on "Publishing Options" in the bottom left sidebar and uncheck Published. Then click Save button.

Note: The page's background will be a light pink to denote that it is unpublished.
