Page Creation

 

Parent pages are always listed. To see all the pages on your site you will have to click on the down arrow on the left of the parent pages to see the child pages.


Parent pages with child pages will display navigation tabs to the left of the top of the page when viewed on a computer. If you wish to have the whole page dedicated to something, you will need to not have child pages. You are limited on how many pages you can have on the navigation bar so keep this to a minimum. On the MN Wing website, the News page was designed this way and so has no child pages.

When you create child pages the parent page then becomes a tab with a drop-down menu. This is visible on a computer but when you click on the parent page on a phone it goes to the parent page. I recommend that on the parent page that you put a link to all the child pages that are on the page so when a parent page is click on a phone it does not lead to a blank page. See the examples below.
