WiscWeb CMS - Using Section Pages

A Section Page can be used to represent a menu item that does not provide a link to any specific page, but allows to create the ability to create a submenu for child pages.

To add a section page to your menu bar, follow these steps:
  1. Click the red dot next to Open Page.
  2. Click the Page Info tab at the top of the screen.
  3. Click the red dot next to Subpages.

  6. Give the Section Page an appropriate Headline. Once you're done, click OK.
    • Remember, the Headline is used to identify the page within the WiscWebCMS project itself, not externally.

  7. You are brought back to the Page Info tab, and your new Section Page will be listed in the Subpages. Click on the link for your new Section Page in the list of Subpages.
