Firstly drag and drop in the layout elements.  For example 1/2 and 1/2 means the page will be divided into two halves.  Or 2/3 and 1/3, etc.

You can also add in a “Color” element first, which will allow you to insert different coloured background or even place images in the background.  If you wish to use this feature, drag and drop it in first, followed by dragging and dropping in the layout elements.

Next, click on the “Content Elements” or “Media Elements” tab and drag and drop one of the content elements over the layout element (Tip: drop the content element when the layout elements is highlighted in green – this will ensure it gets placed within the layout element).

Once you finish adding in the information/images, click on “Save” bottom right hand corner.

At this point, you can choose to place your new page under a particular section.  Simply find “Page Attributes” on the right handside of the “Add New Page” screen and where you see “Parent” click on the down arrow to choose  the “parent” page.

Click on “Publish” top right hand corner.

If you wish to make changes to the page, don’t forget to click on “Update” to ensure the changes are published online.

How to Add a Page to The Menu

If you are adding a key page to your website, such as “About Us”, in most cases the page will be added to the top menu automatically.  However, if you are placing a secondary page, such as “Qualifications”, you will need to manually add that to the menu.

To do that, go your dashboard.  Then click on “Appearance”, then “Menus”

On the  left handside under “Pages”, select the page you wish to add to the menu and click on “Add to Menu”

Then you can drag and drop wherever you wish for the page to display.

Don’t forget to “Save Menu” when you are done
