CMS – Pages / Services – Click the page you want to edit

Parent Page: This is useful if you have pages within sections. So if you About section has three other pages within it, their parent page is the About Page.

Name: What you want to call the page internally

Navigation Name: The name of your page in the navigation bars on your website

Page Name: Title that appears at the top of the page

Active: Whether your page is visible on your website or not

Show in Header: Whether your page is visible on the main top navigation of your website or not. Be careful with this option as adding too many items to your top navigation can stop other pages being shown. There is only limited space in the top navigation bar.

Show in Side Menu: Whether your page is visible in the side menu (usually down the left) or not. 

Want to have a secret page? You can have a secret page of your website by having it Visible, but not shown in the header or side menu. People could only reach these pages by using a URL you provide. E.g. www.mywebsite.com/pageURL

Friendly URL: You can change the URL of your page. E.g. www.yourdomain.com/friendlyurl The CMS will fill this in for you, so you don't usually need to use this option.

Edit a page content

[ See Fig. 3]

CMS – Pages / Services – Click the page you want to edit – Click the “Content” tab

Here you'll see most of the usual features of your desktop word application.

Keynotes:

  1. Pre-formatted fonts and styles are set up under “Formats” to keep you site consistent and tidy looking
  2. If you're copying and pasting from Word, or another Office application, you must clear the formatting to stop your text looking a mess on the web. Please either
    1. Copy and paste into NOTEPAD, then copy and paste from NOTEPAD to LeanCMS
      OR
    2. Paste into LeanCMS, but then select the text and click the “Clear formatting” button.  [ See Fig. 4]

  3. When you have finished editing the text, remember to click the 'Save' box at the bottom of the screen.  If you do not click this, your edits will be discarded.

[ See Fig. 5]

CMS – Pages / Services – Click the page you want to edit – Click the “Images” tab

Upload Images: Click this to upload an image to your page. The website will resize the image (scale it down) so you can upload an image up to 4mb in size. However, the website can't change the aspect ratio of your image because that will skew your image.

Edit a page SEO

[ See Fig. 6]

CMS – Pages / Services – Click the page you want to edit – Click the “SEO” tab

If left blank, LeanCMS is designed to fill in the SEO bits automatically for you so you've always got something sensible for search engines.

However, you can improve the performance of your site by completing the Title and Description tags in particular.

SEO Meta Title: This is the text that appears at the top of your browser window and crucially as the link people click in google. It should contain the primary keyword for the page and usually your company name. Up to 65 characters only.

SEO Description Tag: This is usually the description shown on your search engine listings. This should be a sales pitch to encourage visitors to click your link. Up to 160 characters.
