Creating custom content pages

If you cannot meet your objectives by customizing any of the pre-built landing pages, you can create and configure custom content pages to supplement the pre-built pages. Your site includes templates that you can use to create content pages. You create a copy of the template and then configure it. The templates that you use are pre-linked to the appropriate landing pages, but you must map the new page to a specific section of the landing page.

Note: If you are adding multiple pages in one sitting, you can save time by adding multiple pages before moving on to the next step.

When you have finished adding the custom page, described in the steps here, you must complete these steps, which are described in detail elsewhere in this guide:

Task Description
Name the page The new content page has a generic name. Give it a new name that reflects its subject matter. When you name the page, the page title and any links to the page are set.
Set group access When you add a page, you must assign access to the groups whose users you want to have permission to view the page after it is published.
Specify the landing page where the link to the new page is displayed The landing page is preset, based on the template you copied when you created the new content page. If you want to change the landing page, configure the subject data item on the new page.
Specify the section in which the link to the new page is displayed on the landing page Configure the section data item on the new page.
Rename the topic Change the topic name so the search engine can identify the page. The topic name can be identical to the document name.
Populate with content Add text and links.
Publish the page When the new content page is ready to be rolled out to your workforce, you must publish it to the live site.
  1. Access the document manager.
  2. Click Add New Document > Add From Organization. The Add Method menu opens, showing all of the pages in the organization.
  3. In the Add Method menu, click Copy.
    Review your Landing Page Planner for assistance for the source documents. Integration documents are added as a Reference, not Copy documents.
  4. Locate the page that you want to copy. Use the filters. For example, to find the Benefits content page, type Benefits into the Area field and click the Search button.
    Each landing page has an associated content document to use for mapped content. For example, the Pay landing page is associated with the Pay Content Page template.
  5. Click the page that you want to copy and click Add.
  6. To add more pages, repeat steps 3-5. When you have finished adding pages, close the Add Method menu.
  7. Click the Refresh button to refresh the list of pages in the Document Manager. The page(s) you added are at the top of the list and below all checked out documents. Now you can check out the page and configure it.
