Menu for creating a Basic Page

You will be redirected to a new page that looks like this:

Page Title

Page Titles should be 70 characters or less. This aligns with best practices in terms of  readability and Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Google displays up to 70 characters in search results pages.

There are two ways to begin adding content to the page. 

  1. You can start with the Top Banner section, where you can add a Banner with overlay text to the top of the page, below the header and navigation and above the page Title. 
    Banner Superheads should be 20 characters or less.
    Banner Headlines should be 70 characters or less.

  2. Or, you can decide your page does not need a Top Banner yet, and you can begin adding Paragraphs to your rows of content by clicking one of the Paragraph types on the right ( Text Area, Image/Media, Card, Banner)  of the Paragraphs widget, and dragging it into the first row on the left.
