The Content page type is the most-used type on the site. With the 2008 redesign, this page type was reworked to be able to create one-, two-, and three-columns pages with a single page type.
To create a two-column Content page:
Create a new page of type "Content". By default, Content pages are two column.
To create a three-column Content page:
Give your content page a Related Link set (Learn how).
To create a single-column Content page:
Click the Make this page like ContentNoColumns checkbox located immediately under the Bodycopy box. Don't see this checkbox? You have an older page, but we can add the box for you. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Deprecated. Please use Content page type with a related link set.
Deprecated. Please use Content page type with Make this page like ContentNoColumns checked.
The link set header is the underlined text that appears in black in the right-hand column of a content page. New link set headers automatically say "Related Links, but authors can change the text to anything (i.e. News and Announcements, Contact Information, etc.)
The link set entry is always a child of a link set header. It is essentially a "body" box for the right-hand column.
An internal link can be located in the right-hand column or as the child of a content page and links to pages located in the CMS. See the tutorial on establishing links in the right-hand column
An external link can be used in the right-hand column or as a child of a content page to link to pages outside the CMS. Some good examples are links to faculty personal pages, the event calendar and various interactive forms.
External links can also be used in place of internal links when an author needs to link to a CMS page, but does not want to use the page's header for the link text.
Anchors can only exist as children of a main page (content, left column content, content no columns, or common columns). An anchor displays its header on a page twice: once as a hyperlink near the top of the page and once lower down in bold purple with a horizontal rule. Anchors should be used when you have several short pieces of related information to display. See sample.
