Getting your site structured is key to making it easy for visitors to find what they're looking for. This tutorial will show you how to structure your pages in the right way.
Before we start, an explanation on your site: It is divided into two sections - your front-facing website and your community (= social) pages. The website part of your site is accessed through the main menu, while your community pages are all found in the steady bar at the top of your site (we call this the UMC – unified messaging centre):
Before you start building, draw up on a piece of paper (or in a word document, or any other way you like) what content pages the main menu of your website needs. The Community pages are already set up automatically - for now, focus on your website pages.
As an example, if you’re building a site for your bicycle shop, you should probably have the following pages:
- About us
- Our bikes
- Refurbished bikes
- New bikes
- Bike accessories
- Cycle Safety
- Cycling blogs
Once you have decided on the pages you need, it will be much easier to build your site in the admin center. With our simple drag-and-drop website builder, you’ll be able to mirror this structure and add the content within a matter of minutes. (also, if you’d like us to help you get your site set up, having this structure ready will make it a lot easier for us to build it for you!)
