Page settings control various aspects of a page including visibility and access.
Displaying page settings
To view the page settings for a page, select the page within the Site pages list and click the Edit button.
The page settings will appear in a panel along the left side.
If you are already editing the page and the page settings are not displayed along the left side – maybe you're currently displaying the list of available gadgets – click the Page icon towards the top of the screen.
Once you are finished modifying the page settings, click the Save button to save your changes.
Available page settings
The following page settings are available:
The name of the page as it appears in the site menu and within the breadcrumbs that show your current location within the site hierarchy.
The name of the page within the page URL. The value you enter here will be combined with your Wild Apricot domain name to form the complete page URL. For example, if you enter About in this field, and your Wild Apricot domain name is:
then the complete page URL will be:
You cannot use the same page URL for multiple pages within your site. For more information, see Custom URLs.
The page template to be used as the basis for this page. The page will inherit the template's content and layout. Switching to a different page template after you have begun modifying the page may result in layouts and gadgets changing position within the page. Switching back to the previous page template may not restore them to their previous positions. You can, however, restore a version of the page that was saved prior to switching templates.
Position in menu
The location of this page within your Wild Apricot site menu. You can position the page after another page, group it under another page, or designate it as the home page. You can also choose to exclude or hide this page from the site menu altogether. For more information, see Page access and visibility.
Controls what type of visitor – members, administrators, the general public – can view the page, whether through the site menu or directly via a page URL. If you choose the Restricted option, check boxes will appear for each membership level and member group you have set up. To restrict access to particular membership levels or member groups, check each of the levels and groups you want to grant access to. If you restrict access by both membership levels and member groups, then members who belong to any of the selected levels or groups will be able to access the page.
If you check the All levels or All groups option then all levels or groups – including any levels or groups added in the future – will be selected.
If a visitor to your site does not have permission to access a page, it will not appear in the site menu for that person. Your site menu, therefore, may display different sets of pages depending on whether the visitor is logged in as a member or not, and what their membership level is.
For more information, see Page access and visibility.
You can assign meta-tags to be applied to the page. Meta-tags are HTML elements used to provide information about a page, redirect a page, and load scripts or styles. You can also assign global meta-tags that are applied to all pages.
