Saving Your Page

Once you’re finished editing your page and you’re ready to save it, you’ve got a couple different options. You can save a Draft or you can Publish the page.

Save A Draft

If you’re finished editing your page content for now, but aren’t quite ready for the world to see it, you can save a draft. This will save the page in it’s current state, but will not publish the page to the front end. This is perfect if you need to take a break or you can’t quite get the content finished in one sitting. All of your drafts for the page are saved at the bottom of your Governor Content Management page under the Revisions header. You can view or revert back to any of these previous versions at any time. This will create a new version of the page.

Publish Your Page

If you’ve finished editing your page content and are ready to put it out there for everyone to see, click the “Publish” button. This will save the page content and publish it to the front end website for your site visitors to see. This action will also save the latest version in your “Revisions” section.

Preview Your Page

You can preview your page at any time by clicking the “Preview” button in the top right corner of your Governor Content Management page. This will open up a view of the page in a new browser tab but it will not save the page or a draft.

Accessing Modules

Each Module you have added on to your Governor site has it’s own set of management. To access each Module’s management features, click on the modules tab in the left side navigation. Any Modules you have installed will be shown in the left side menu. To see the management options for each, the name click the Module name in the menu.

Page Settings

Visible Selection

Check this box if you’d like this page to be visible on the front end of your site.

Use this as parent title only

Check this box if you’d like this “page” to only show as a navigation parent, with no actual page or content associated with it. For example, if I had a website with a main title of About, with subpages of Team and History and I didn’t want the “Parent” About to actually have a page to click to, I would check this option.

Make External Link

Check this box if you’d like this “page” to only be a navigation item that links to an external page (not a page within your site). If checked, you’ll be asked to input a URL to link to . This will create a navigation item on your website that links to a page off site.

Use Password for Page

Check this box if you’d like visitor to be required to enter a password to access this page. If checked, you’ll be asked to enter the desired password. This is perfect for showing a private project page to a client.

Parent Page

If this new page is meant to be a sub-page, select the main page that it will fall under. For example, if this new page is "Team" and it needs to be a sub-page of "About", select "About from this dropdown. In the Site Map table, the "Team" page will now be nested underneath "About". You can also do this at a later time by dragging the page on the Site Map view.

Select a Template
