All pages on your TwentyThree site are generated automatically based on your layout setup, but you might also need some customized static pages. Examples of such are About pages, Conditions etc. Common for all of these are the fact that you obviously want them to have their own unique links, which means that simply putting the static content into your layout won't do.
This is where the concept of "static pages" comes into play. Static pages can be found by going to Inbound → Manage pages, and by default you will see one page called "About", which is an empty page automatically added when you set up your TwentyThree site. Clicking on the eye icon next to the page title opens the page on your video site and allows you to preview the content as it is presented to your users, whereas clicking the edit or delete icon allows you to respectively edit or delete a static page. Adding a new page is as easy as clicking "Add a new page".
Editing or adding a static page
When adding or editing a static page, you will be presented with a series of options. First off is the actual content of your page which is defined by the Page title and the content itself denoted by Page content. The content of the page can be formatted in different ways, which have the characteristics as follows:
|Pure text||The page content is formatted just as you write it - ie. all HTML tags are displayed as text. TwentyThree automatically handles inserting line breaks.|
|Text with a bit of HTML||The page content is formatted just as you write it but with the addition of actually adding HTML tags. Line breaks are however automatically handled, so in the case of using tables or other multi line nested tags, Pure HTML is the formatting you need.|
|Pure HTML||The page content is not formatted as all, meaning that all content is displayed as written in HTML. No line breaks will be added automatically.|
The second half of editing a static page is deciding how and when access to the page is displayed.
The URL of the page is the link by which people access it. Allowed characters are letters a through z, A through Z, the numbers 0 through 9, dots (.), dashes (-) and underscores (_). All URL's are located in the subpath of /page/, but apart from that, you have complete control of the URL.
The last configurable option for a page is where a link to the page should be displayed. You have the following options:
|Link to page?||Links|
|Don't link to this page automatically||No links to this page will be displayed in any automatically generated blocks.|
|Link to this page in the menu block||A link to this page will be automatically added to the menu block, if a such is used in your layout.|
|Link to this page in the pages block||A link to this page will be automatically added to the pages block, if a such is used in your layout.|
|Link to this page in the footer block||A link to this page will be automatically added to the footer block.|
