Manage pages and menus in Oxwall platform
Drag’n’drop items across menus to change their location. For example, you can move temporarily unused page to the Hidden Pages section to make it invisible on your site. Moved page will be accessible via the direct URL only.
How to create a new static page
You can also create your own static pages with the content of your choice. For example, you can create the new page and place the Help Center of your site there. Just click Add Item button, specify all needed details and click Submitt.
Here you can manage set of widgets and their positioning on User Dashboard page. The page itself is divided into three section (top content, main content, bottom content). Move the cursor to change the widths of columns in main content section. This is useful if you would like to place newsfeed in one of the columns and quick links in the other.
Set of widgets you can use is predefined by the plug ins installed on your site. You can also create unlimited number of widgets of Custom text/HTML and RSS feeds types and place them on User Dashboard page.
Note: If you would like to “freeze” widget on certain position to make sure that site users won’t be able to delete or reposition it, place the widget in needed place, click “Edit” and check Freeze check box.
Frozen items’ positions are fixed and can not be moved or edited by users. They always occupy the upper positions in containers.
Here you can manage set of widgets and their positioning on User Profile page. Similar to User Dashboard this page is divided into three sections. Use cursor to change width of columns and drag&drop tool to move items across different section.
Splash screen, is the page that pops up to your site visitors the first time they open your site URL. Enable this option to put a welcome notice, warning, or any other content of your choice. Splash screen always has Enter and Leave buttons. You can change Enter button’s label andLeave buttons URL using the form bellow:
Here is how your site visitors will see website’s splash screen:
Note:Splash Screen shows up when a users opens you site for the first time. The Splash Screen log is saved in the browser cookies, thus preventing it from showing up repeatedly for a particular visitor. But if the member logs out and closes the browser – the cookie logs are removed. Thus, when they open your site after that, they will see the Splash Screen again.
Use Maintenance Page to disable your site and show maintenance message instead. To access your site under maintenance mode as a site administrator sign in as admin using following URL: www.yoursitename.com/sign-in.
