Creating a New Page

Video Tutorial Available:  Creating Files

A new page can be created from existing templates within the OU Campus system by accessing the Pages list view. The Pages list view can be accessed by selecting Content > Pages from the global navigation bar. Pages should be created from within the appropriate directory to avoid needing to move pages and accidentally creating broken links.

New Page Creation Options

A new page can be created from the Pages list view by using the New button. Users can additionally click the drop-down indicator on the New button to display the available templates.

New Content Menu

The New button and the drop-down indicator can both be used to create a new page, but reveal different styles of menu. The drop-down indicator reveals a menu within the directory structure. The New button navigates away from the directory structure to a new screen.

New Content Screen

When users either click the New button or use the drop-down menu on the New button, the Select New Content screen is displayed.  From here you can click one of the template icons which will open a dialog for editing the new page properties using the selected template.

 Select New Content Screen

New (Template Name) Page Screen

After users select the template to use for the new page creation process, a dialog displays. Fill out all necessary parameters in this dialog to create a basic page with no content. You will utilize the WYSIWYG Editor to create custom content to include in the page.
