Adding New Pages to easyCMSlite, the free, easy content management system
1) Log into your site at yoursite.com/admin. Once logged in, click on the Edit Site link in the top navigation bar.
2) In the main page, now with the administrative function available, click on the [ Add New ] links. These links are available in the top navigation bar, either at the top level, or as sub menus under existing menu items. There will also be [ New Link ] links in the side navigation bar.
3) Once you have clicked on one of these links, the new page editor will appear as a popup window.
The first text input box is called "Link Text". Add your link text here. That is, the text that people will see in the navigation bar. For instance, if I wanted to add a top menu item as a main menu (not a sub menu), I could put link text of "Products". This will create the Link Address automatically. You may change the link address manually if you need to. Generally you would not manually change this text, however, this auto created link creates an internal page on your site. For example, in our "Products" page, it will create a default page at www.yoursite.com/products/index.php. However, you may intend for "Products" to point to an external website. In this case you can change the link text to, for example, www.othersite.com/theirproducts/page.html.
There is a slight difference between adding top navigation links and the side navigation links. In the top navigation links, the third item link editor says "Use in Footer Link". Putting a check mark here creates a link in the footer of the site (for templates that have a footer link).
For side navigation links it asks for the Alt text, which also has a value inserted based on your Link Text. You may change this text if you want. This is text which displays when a user keeps their mouse over the link without clicking on it.
Once you are done entering your link information, click on save to create the link and the page.
When it has saved the page, you will see the new link in your side or top navigation bar. If you click on the link text of this (or any other) link you can edit the link text (it is not recommended to edit the link url).
To access the newly created page to edit its content, click on the asterix (*) to the left of the link text. This will take you to that page where you can click on the [Edit this page] at the top of the page.
