Configure the content page

This section of the guide explains how to configure a standard content page. In other words, we are describing the 'what' and 'how' of the changes you can make to the layout and formatting of your page. This is so that you can tailor your page to suit your communication purposes.

You can make changes to the following layout/formatting aspects of your standard content page.

Overview

Breadcrumbs are a list of clickable links showing the path taken to the location of the current page. Colleagues viewing your page can use these breadcrumb links to navigate back through the path leading to the page. Navigating this way may help them discover other useful content.

Content authors are able to switch breadcrumbs on and off as desired.

Example/s

Procedure

  1. Navigate to the page.

  2. Click the 'Edit' button or add '/_edit' to the URL of the page. This will open up the Edit+ Interface.

  3. Enter the Metadata screen.

  4. Within the Page Layout section, navigate to the Show breadcrumbs? metadata field.

  5. Edit the Show breadcrumbs? metadata field as follows:

    • Breadcrumbs switched on: keep 'Use default' tick box checked.

    • Breadcrumbs switched off: un-tick 'Use default' and select 'No'.

  6. Save the change.

Page heading

Overview

The page title of a content page sits and the top of the page and tells the user what the page is about. There may be a reason you don’t want to display the page title to your colleagues.

Content authors are able to switch page headings on and off as desired.

Example/s

Page heading switched on

Page heading switched off

Procedure

Author block

Overview

The Author block of a page contains:

  • the user avatar and name of the person that created the page

  • the date the page was created on

  • a favourite button (allowing users to 'favourite' the page)

  • an Edit button (allowing user to click through to the Edit+ interface to edit the page).

Content authors are able to switch the author block on and off as desired. It is important to note that switching off the author block will hide all of the above information/features.

We recommend that you keep the author block switched off for landing pages. You will need to switch the author block off, as it will display by default.
