In progress How to add pages

Post by jan4jam on May 26th 2015, 6:53 pm

Good afternoon,

I was wondering when reading some of the tools it says you can add some pages, may you please direct me where to find out how to do so? I would love to add a home page and one more thing is that free?

Thank you have a good day,
Jan

@jan4jam A home page is free. In order to add a custom page:

Administration Panel > Modules > HTML & JAVASCRIPT > HTML pages management

Here you can use one of two different editing tools: WYSIWYG or HTML.


WYSIWYG = What You See Is What You Get

This is probably the best tool for beginners. In this mode, what you put on the page is what will be displayed. However, due to its simplicity, you can't get all of the perks that you would get from HTML.


HTML = Hyper Text Markup Language

This is for advanced programmers who want to edit the minute details of their forum. Unless you are very skilled in HTML, do not start with an HTML page.

Hope that helped ;*

Thank you SL Gray, and Ace 1,

I did what you said Ace, and I also went to the link you provided SL Gray but I do not understand at all what it means, I guess I am one of those who need to use the easy way. Not the html I mean?

What I want to do maybe if I can understand it is to add articles to my Home page? I did add a title and my old description that I had at my old forum, it is great if I could have a home page I will be estatic:) But the thing is I had a huge amount of help in doing the other one, I do write my own articles though.

BTW: All I did after I put in a description was click preview and then I like what I see but if I click submit is it going to be a short page as it looks with my short description, what I mean is after I click submit i am nervous, is it going to say something like add article, or do I go to the box where I put my description in and add the articles there to appear on the home page like that, make sense? I hope so for as you can see I have no experience?

And if I can add articles to the homepage how I explained above if I am right will they go in order on the page, it is just I do not get why the page looks so short? I know probably cause there is nothing else there yet, but before I submit it I just want to make sure I understand how to add more stuff to it make sense? I apologize ahead of time for my lack of experience?

If this is too complicated for you to explain just say so it is okay because before I knew you could have a homepage I created a Category "Home Page" and put it all on the forum? And was going to just add my writings there daily or weekly or what have you?

Thank you for your patience have a good day
Jan
