Page Settings

This settings determine how this page is displayed.

Title - On all pages, this is where you edit the name of the page. 

Featured Image - On all pages, this is where a featured image can be set to display at the top of the page. Learn more about the featured image.

Page Template - On all pages, this is where the page template is set. The default template is “Basic Page.”

Custom Page URL - On all pages, this is where the page’s URL can be set. On the homepage, do NOT edit this otherwise it will prevent visitors from being able to access your site properly.

SEO / Social Settings

This is where you can set or modify the page information that appears in browsers, search engine results and social media sites.

Browser Title - By default, the page title that appears in a browser tab will be the page title. You can modify that in this field. It will only change what appears the browser title -- it won’t affect the title for search engines or social media.

Canonical URL - This is usually not applicable for a homepage. This field is only used if a page is an exact copy of another page that is considered the “original source” of the page info, and that is found elsewhere on the internet. Adding the original URL here can contribute to better search health by not attempting to “take credit” for content that is found elsewhere.

Search Keywords - Write the key words someone would include in a search when looking for your page or content. Separate each one with a comma and space. (Eg. Homily, Easter, spring)

Meta Description - This is the text that is found under the page title in a search result. Clearly describe what your page is about and try to use key search words. The description found on the homepage will be the description for the entire site by default. You can modify the meta description for every other page.

Social Media Description - This copy shows up when someone shares a link to this page on social media. This should give context to this page and invite others to look at the content. This is optional as, by default, social media will display the meta description. Use this field when you want a specialized description for social media that is different from the meta description.

Social Media Image - If you want a different picture than the main photo to show up on social media, you can upload that here.

Navigation Settings

Redirect URL - If you would like to redirect this page to an already existing page on your site, you can add in the URL path here (eg. /about-contact)

Options for Page as a Parent - A parent page creates its own folder in the CMS that helps you organize your sites pages and child pages within them. Parent page slugs also appear in the URLs of its children. The dropdown menu has three options:

  • Standard page - A regular parent page that is included in its child page URLs. e.g "About"  "/about/contact"
  • Redirect to first child page - I want this page to be skipped and to go directly to its first child.
  • Set as a folder - Remove this page's slug from its child page URLs. e.g "About" points to "/contact"

Choose a Parent Page - Assign this page as a child to a parent page that already exists.

Menu Title - Editing this text will affect how this page is displayed in the menu navigation. However, it is better to manage navigation items using the Navs tool. Read more here: Add a Custom Page to the Site Navigation

Display this page in site menu checkbox -  Uncheck this box if you want to remove a page from your site menu. This can be handy if you have a page you want to link people to directly but don't want to show the page in the menu.
