How to create a new page on your recruitment website

Watch this video for a quick run-through of how to add a new page to your recruitment website.

Hi everyone, in this video I'm going to guide you through how to create a new page on your Volcanic website. 

So in the top menu of your admin screen, go to Your Website, and then within the content section, go to Pages. Then, in the top right corner of the page, you will find a NEW button. 

You will then arrive at a page which will present you with all of the fields required to create a new page on your website. Now, it is important to remember that not every one of these fields will apply to you as it depends on how you decide to build your website, but I will run through all of them so you know what each of them mean. 

So here you will enter the title of your page, and now where this appears depends on your page template, but by default this usually appears at the top. 

Then you can select your page template. For most of you, this will most likely be "gen-sub", but if you need more information about page templates, please feel free to contact our support team. 

If the new page you're adding is a sub-page that will belong to an existing one, then you can choose a parent page here. 

Then your Permalink is the last part of the path within your URL. If you leave this field blank, we have a smart tool in place that can automatically generate your link from your page title. We recommend you do this as it can help with your SEO.

Ticking the Indexable checkbox ensures that your page can be found by search engine page crawlers. Having an indexible page is a prerequisite for being ranked on search engines. If you don't want your page to be found, you can leave this box unticked. However, please note that if there is a link to this page somewhere in the site, it may get indexed anyway as web crawlers will eventually come across it. 

So next we have the hidden checkbox. You can tick this box to hide pages from users whilst it is still being created. Admin users will still be able to view and edit the page.

Now your page geolocation fields enable you to present a map on your website, and then displays things like client pages, case studies, or event pages for example, by location. If you do this, you will need to define the latitude and longitude of the page so that the content can be displayed in the correct position on the map.

Now you may be thinking - I haven't actually written any content yet for this page, so where can I do this? Now, don't worry, once the page is created you can add and amend page content using the on page editor.

So once you're happy with all the information you have entered here - I'm going to actually make sure this is visible - you can click submit. You will then arrive back at the pages overview page, and you will find your new page has been added here. You can then re-order it by clicking, dragging and dropping into place, preview, edit or remove the page.
