Key concepts:

  • Pages: webpages that surround your map
  • Templates: there are five available templates on Pagemaker:
    • Homepage: the main homepage for your Humap 
    • Content page: additional content, such as About pages 
    • Article list page: a directory for articles on your Humap site, such as team blogs or instructions 
    • Landing page: a landing page for a specific user pathway 
    • Map content search page: a way to search for content that is on the map without clicking into the map
  • Articles: blogs and other documentation 
  • Modules: pages are made up of different modules. 
  • Hero: hero images are the big images at the top of the page
  • Parent page: a parent page has child pages nested within it – for example, if Home is your parent page, your child pages might be ‘About’ or ‘Meet the Team’

Use the menu on the left of this screen for instructions on how to create and manage pages and modules.
