A page is a location or container where you publish articles and other content. A new page (the "child" or "sub-page") is always attached to an existing page (the "parent").

You create pages to help organize content. For example, let's say you have a "Vacation Pictures" page on your personal website. You might want to create sub-pages that refer to specific vacations (e.g., "Cape Cod 2003," "Ireland 2004," "Sedona 2005," etc.)

When you create a new page you also automatically create the link in the Navigation menu that points to the page. Unless you specify otherwise, the link to the new page will appear indented below the link to its parent page. If a parent page has more than one sub-page, the links to its sub-pages are listed alphabetically in the menu.

Wherever you have permissions to change the settings of a page you will see the following in your browser:

When you first go to a page, the Contents tab--which lets you work with the contents of a page--is active. To work with page settings, you click the Settings tab:

Under the Settings tab you find four items:

Edit (the default)Rename the current page or change its permissions and appearance.
Copy/Move Copy a page and its subpages and contents to a new location or move the same to a new location. In effect, the move operation assigns the current page to a different parent page.
Delete Delete the current page and contents and all its sub-pages and their content.
Add sub-page
Create a new page that will be a child of the current page.
