Creating a Generic Page

A Generic page is just as it sounds. A page without any exact role, but able to fill many roles depending on the information you enter in. It is simplistic by nature, with only a few areas to fill in information. The most common uses for a generic page range from directions to a venue (complete with maps!), details about the event proper (Dress code? History of event?), or any other information you need to have given to your Supporters! Creating a Generic page is as simple as going through your Manage Project Website, using the drop down menu to select Generic Page, and clicking Add. From there you can fill in the page with whatever information you would like. A brief walk-through can be found below. 

  1. From the Project Home, select Manage Project Website under the Project Website header.
  2. Using the drop down titled Add a Page, and select a Generic page.
  3. Click Add.
  4. The Creating a Generic Page form will appear, here you can fill in all the necessary fields for creating a page.
  5. Determine the Page Name, Page Visibility and Navigation Text, and the Page Layout.
    • The green question marks will have additional information about Page Visibility, Navigation Text, and Page Layout.
  6. Fill in you Main HTML text. This will take up the majority of the screen. You can adjust size and color of the font, Insert Images, Hyperlink, or if you are a web-savvy developer use the HTML pane to custom write your HTML coding.
  7. Fill in the Sidebar HTML text. This will be either on the left or right, depending on what kind of Page Layout you have set up for the page. Note that the Sidebar HTML text box has the same capabilities as the Main HTML.
  8. Make a check mark for creating a Friendly URL. This is a shortened URL that is easy to distribute to your Supporters, and it’s easier to remember too! The first portion of the Friendly URL is specific to your organization and must be present on your Friendly URL.
  9. Click Save to save your work and be taken back to Manage Project Website. You can always go back and edit what you have entered by using Edit Page Settings!
