Editing pages

ShineISP handles the pages as records of a database. When you need to create a new page, you have to login as administrator and click at the menu:

CMS > Pages

A list of data is shown with all the records already created. Click at the Add page link to create a new page.

The standard page contains:

  • Title
  • Slug
  • Category
  • Content
  • Tags
  • Parent page
  • Is Visible
  • Language
  • Layout

Title

The title can be created as you prefer. You can use letters, symbols and spaces of course.

Slug

A slug is the title after it has been cleaned and has had all special characters replaced and is ready to be used in the url and database. If you need to set a custom slug string you have to write something in this field. If not a slug will be created.

Category

The category let you organize the pages in your website and filter them to create a group of smooth information.

Content

The content of the page is the text that you need to show in your website. The content can be formatted as you like by the WYSIWYG editor.

Tags

This kind of metadata helps describe an item and allows it to be found again by browsing or searching. Tags are generally chosen informally and personally by the item's creator or by its viewer, depending on the system.

Parent page

A parent page is a page that is subordinate to another. When you are viewing any page, you can see if it has one or more parent pages.

Is Visible

Show or hide a cms in the frontend side of the website.

Language

Set the language version of the page.

Layout

Layout is built with a small set of XML tags that are easy to learn. For instance:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<layout>
    <default template="2columns-right"> 
        <commons> 
            <blocks>
                 <block side="right">block1</block>
                 <block side="right">block2</block>                 
            </blocks>
        </commons>
    </default>
</layout>

In this case you can set the template layout name and the blocks included in the right side of the 2columns-right layout.
