In this article, we'll talk about the Pages app. This feature will help you build a structure for your website pages.
Go to your Dashboard and select Pages to add, remove, or rename your pages. Upon entering the Pages app, you'll find an overview of your existing website pages. Hover over a page and you'll find options to Edit, Go, Duplicate Page, Set Password, or Delete the page.
Your pages are categorized as follows: Main Pages, Secondary Pages, and System Pages. The Main Pages are visible on your site navigation and page menu, whereas the Secondary Pages appear when redirected from your Main Pages through internal links.
You can edit a page's Title and Alias and choose whether you would like to open it in the same tab or in a new tab, which can be selected from the Target option.
On the top left corner, you'll find the Language Switcher, which allows you to manage the pages designated for each language that you've added via the Languages section in the Dashboard.
The + Icon
Below or next to your website pages, click the + icon to create a new Page Blank, Anchor, Heading Page, External Page, and/or Articles.
A blue dot in the upper right corner indicates that your page is Published. You can revoke this by clicking on the dot or using the switcher. The indicator will instantly turn red to show that the page is no longer live.
You cannot delete the Homepage, however, you can assign any other page as a Homepage by enabling the Homepage switcher.
Please note that you can create up to 3 one-level subpages. If you choose to delete a Main Page, the associated subpages will be deleted as well. Go to Page Settings to remove (or disassociate) the subpages, in order to keep them, before deleting the Main Page.
The Duplicate option allows you a slot to duplicate pages of your website. However, you will need to manually duplicate any subpages. Please note that you cannot duplicate a page with elements that are not a part of your subscription package.
You can also duplicate your current site within your Dragify account, apart from duplicating pages within your current website.
You have the ability to also set passwords for specific pages. From the System Pages section, you can see your password-protected pages from your site visitors' perspective.
Click on the Lock icon, enable the Password Protect toggle, and set a password in the Set Password field.
You can also make your entire website password-protected using the Site Settings app from your Dashboard.
After having activated the Password Protection feature for the separate page, your site visitors will see your page like this.
System pages are the pages that your site users see when there is an error or you've taken your website offline, for say, updates.
You can create a 404 page, Offline page, Legal page, and Sign In and/or Sign Out Required pages.
Once you've defined the structure of your pages, the Main pages will appear on the Header section of your website.
Head back to your website builder by clicking on the Go button on your desired page. Right-click on top of your menu items where you'll find several options to help you customize. Select Edit Page and go to Layout Settings and use the toggles to change your layouts, modes, and so forth.
For example, if you change the mode to Burger, your pages will be shown in the hamburger navigation format. Now, if you click on your hamburger icon that appears, your menu items will pop up on the right side of your screen.
Mobile View Menu
The mobile view of your website will always display your menu in the hamburger navigation format. To adjust this, here are the steps:
- Right-click on top of your menu items and go to Settings.
- Under Layout Settings, switch the Mode toggle to Burger.
- Head back to Page Settings by clicking the < arrow and now head to Burger Menu Settings.
- Choose an icon in Burger Menu Settings.
- Head back again to Page Settings by clicking the < arrow and now go to Layout Settings again.
- Switch the Mode toggle back to Standard.
- Click Save.
- You can use the Preview option on your Left Panel to preview your site in mobile view, as well as desktop view, to see your changes.
