Folders are an excellent way to organize a list of pages. This feature allows you to group similar pages under a single heading making easier for visitors to navigate your website.

When a visitor clicks the folder name from the page menu, the folder will expand to reveal a list of the pages included inside of it. You can even include a subfolder that would be visible under the main folder (learn how).

As an example, you might create a folder named "Community Documents" and insert pages for meeting minutes, financial reports, and governing documents inside of it. 

How to add a folder

  1. Visit the "Pages" section in the Admin Portal and click the "Add folder" button from the menu at the top of the page.

  2. On the next page, enter a name for the folder (e.g. Documents, Photos, Links), then click the green "Add" button.

  3. Once created, scroll to the bottom of the page list. This is where you will find the new folder. Next, under the "Move" column, click on the double arrow icon and drag the folder above the pages you'd like to add inside of it.

Placing existing pages inside of a folder 

To place existing pages inside of a folder, click the double arrow icon under the “Move” column and drag and hover it over the folder or the page before it that has been placed inside of the folder. As you hover over the folder, the corresponding page icon will appear to indicate which page you're moving.

When a page is moved into the folder it will be indented within the page list and will be numbered in accordance with the parent folder (e.g. 11.1, 11.2, 11.3).

As a note, if pages are not added to a folder, the folder will not appear in the page menu. 

Add a new page to an existing folder automatically

  1. When creating a new page, click the drop-down under "Place in a folder." This will display all existing folders.

  2. From here, select your desired folder.

  3. Lastly, click the green "Add" button. Your new page will now be automatically added inside of the selected folder.

As you can see, creating a folder prior to adding the pages you plan to place inside of it can save you a few steps!

Removing pages from a folder

To move a page outside of a folder, you'll click on the double arrow icon under the “Move” column and drag the page down so it is below the folder. Once that happens, the number of the page will no longer be indented in accordance with the parent folder.
