Pages

The Pages plugin allows you to create and alter pages without the need to edit a single line of html code. A default DF/Manager installation has a number of built-in pages. Built-in pages can be freely altered, but cannot be deleted. Pages are new to DF/Manager 1.5.

Creating a page

  • Go to the Pages plugin from the admin Dashboard.
  • Click the New Page button.
  • Enter a page name and click Save.

You now have a basic, empty page.

Altering a page

Open the page you want to edit.

Template

Select the layout template for the page. Each template has a number of regions. You can add elements to a region in the Elements tab.

Permalink

The permanent link to the page. A permalink is created when you create a new page. You can alter permalinks afterwards, but you should be aware that changing the permalink will result in a 404-error for the previous link. Built-in pages have fixed permalinks and cannot be changed.

It is recommended to use only lower-case letters and numbers and replace spaces and other strange characters with dashes (-).

Title

The title of the page. This is visible to visitors in the title bar od their browser.

Keywords

Comma separated list of keywords for the page.

Description

Short description used for the description meta-tag. Google recommends no more than about 150 characters.

  • From the Add element listbox, select the element you want to add
