One of the core features of any CMS is the ability to create a new page and add content to it. To do this in TerminalFour, start by locating the “parent” of the page you’d like to create. For example, if you want to add a page directly under the LMU home page, the LMU home page would be the “parent”, and the new page would be the “child” of the LMU home page. If you wish to create a page under the English program’s home page, the English program’s home page will be the “parent”, and the new page will be the “child” of the English program’s home page.
Once you determine the parent, to the right of the parent page you’ll see a blue “Actions” dropdown menu. Expand that, and click “Create Section”, which is the first option in the menu.
You’ll be presented with a new, blank “General” tab that you’re likely already familiar with. There are many options listed, but you only need to be concerned with three of them near the top: The page title, the page status, and whether or not you want the page to display in the left-hand navigation. You can almost always ignore everything else on the General tab.
If you’re unfamiliar with page statuses and how the left-hand navigation works, please refer to these two other guides:
After you’ve specified those three options, click the blue “Save changes” button at the bottom of the page. After that’s done, you’ll see that the new page has been created under the selected parent. You can now open the new page, go to the “Content” tab, and click the green “Add content” button to start adding content to build out the page.
