Page Blocks & Page Panels

Page Blocks/Page Panels are additional elements that you can add to a basic page with our CMS. Within these Page Blocks/Page Panels you can add various content elements. These elements are then used to layout content within one of our available Content Layout Modules.

The page example to the left shows how a page block or page panel is added to a standard web page.

Depending on your site configuration, you may be able to add the following content layout modules with a page block or page panel.

If these are not available then please contact us about upgrading your site to add these.

To add a Page Block / Page Panel to an existing page

  1. Go to the Edit page and expand Pages.
  2. Keep expanding the pages until you find the page to which you wish to add the page block.

  6. Give it a name (this is not shown on the website) and enter a description if needed.
  7. Once you have finished, click Save Data.

  3. Keep expanding the pages until you find the page to which you wish to add the page block.
  4. Click Add next to the page block in the child elements and choose the type of content element to add.
    (It is best to only use 1 type of content element per Page block).
  5. Fill out the content for this element and once you have finished, click Save Data.
  6. Repeat step 4 for each content element you wish to add.
  7. You will now need to Publish for these changes to appear on the website.

 

Changing the order of Page Blocks

If you have multiple Page Blocks on a page, you can re-order them to display in the order you wish. To do this, simply locate the blocks in the edit tree, then click, hold and drag them up and down to change their order. Please note that the CMS lists blocks in reverse order - meaning the block at the bottom will be the first shown on the page. Once you have re-ordered the blocks, you need to Publish the site in order for any changes to appear.
