Creating a New Section for your Site

In order to create a new section with pages underneath it on your website, you will have to use folders. Within a folder, you need to have at least two pages, one of which is named “index” to display properly. See below how to ensure that they appear in your navigation correctly.

  • In your site’s dashboard in Cascade, first create a new folder.
    • High light the folder where you want this new folder to reside.
    • Typically, new folders and new sections should live under the “Base Folder”. If this is the case, select your Base Folder.
  • Next, select the Add Content tab at the top of the page, and then “Folder”.

  • A window will pop up.
  • In the field called “Folder Name,” give this folder a system name.
    • Remember, a system name should be all lowercase characters, and not have any spaces or symbols in them.
    • For example, a system name may be: “systemname“, but not “System Name”.
  • Directly underneath the Folder Name section will be a Metadata section.

  • Give your folder a “Display Name”.
    • A display name is what appears in your site’s navigation.
    • A display name can be formatted any way you’d want the folder displayed, such as: “New Folder”.
  • Once your folder has both a display name and a folder name, you can hit Submit at the top of the window.
  • Now that your folder is created, you need to create pages to live within that folder.
  • High Light the folder in the left-hand navigation. (Be sure to click the carrot arrow to directly select folder.)
  • Click “Add Content”and select “Second Level Page”.
  • This page that you create must have a Page Name of “index”. (Remember! Page names are always all lowercase with not spaces!)
  • Ensure that this page has also a Display Name (within the Metadata) and a Title so the page appears properly in your navigation.
  • Once this “index” page is created in this new folder, go ahead and create another new page, this time giving it a page name of whatever you’re creating these pages for.
  • Now that you have a folder that is properly named and two pages within that folder, one of which is “index”, you’re ready to go!
