How Pages Work

Pages in Agility are the main representation of the structure for your website or digital solution. In general, there are 3 simple types of pages:

  1. Page
  2. Folder
  3. Link

Page

A Page is composed of a Page Template, Content Zones, and Modules. Pages can either be a standard Page or a Dynamic Page, which allows you to build pages dynamically based on entries in a Content Model (i.e. a list of posts or products).

Page Properties

  • Page Template - Defines your overall page layout and where you can place modules.
  • Menu Text – The ‘link’ text that will be used when the page appears on your sitemap.
  • Page Title – The text that appears in the “title” element of the raw HTML, and is therefore used as the main title in the browser.
  • Page Name – this is the name of the page within the context of the website: for example, a page with the name “home” would be accessed via the URL “~/home”.

Dynamic Page Properties

  • Page Template - Defines your overall page layout and where you can place modules.
  • Build Pages From - The Content Model that will be used to create individual pages dynamically based on the entries in the list.
  • Sitemap Label - The label to identify this page in the sitemap.
  • Page Path Formula - Create the URL slug for this page from a combination of fields on the list items.
  • Page Title Formula - Create the Title for this page from a combination of fields on the list items.
  • Menu Text Formula - Create the Menu Text for this page from a combination of fields on the list items.

Folder

This is a virtual folder to group pages. The folder Itself cannot be accessed as a resource.

Properties

  • Menu Text – The same as in a page, this is the text that appears as the directory on links in a navigation control or on a sitemap.
  • Folder Name – Similar to the page name above, this is the name that represents the directory in the context of a website: so a folder named “news” means that all pages below it would start with “~/news/”.

Link

A Link can be used to place a link in the sitemap to another page, a document, or to a completely different website.

Properties

  • Menu Text – The same as in pages and folders, this is the text that appears as the directory on links in a navigation control or on a sitemap
  • Link Name – This will form the URL of the link in the sitemap, relative to its position in the page tree
  • Link – This is the target resource to which the link will redirect. Agility allows you to pick another page within the page tree, a document within the document tree, or a completely custom URL
  • Target – the target window to open the link into.
