You are now able to change the location of pages within the structure of your website. If you decide the 'Staff Page' should be located within the 'Information' tab rather than the 'About Us' section you can simply move it, and that change is instantly reflected in the public facing navigation menu. We strongly encourage not moving things too often for accessibility reasons, as this can be confusing for your regular visitors who may become used to information being in particular locations.
Each page consists of a main content area where you can use the new HTML Editor to add text and style your content, along with the following managed features:
Dedicated file management enables you to quickly add files to any page. These files are then automatically styled into prominent links for your website visitors. This is great for presenting multiple files like policies, reports or newsletters. Files can also be separated into groups within the page with sub-headings, to make it even easier for people to find the information they are looking for. The styling means that file downloads throughout the site are consistent and recognisable.

You can make any text into a link with our HTML editor, but sometimes you want to create a collection of links on a page to share resources, or signpost to essential websites. Our dedicated Link Management enables you to add links along with a logo/image, this makes lists of links look much more appealing and easier to use. When adding a link you simply need:
- The name to display e.g. 'BBC'
- The URL of the website or resource e.g. 'https://www.bbc.co.uk'
- An image or logo to represent the link (just press the upload button and browse to the logo or image you have prepared)
- Optionally, you can add a line or 2 of information to display a description alongside the link

Images & video
Each page is capable of having it's own mini gallery, where images and videos can be displayed together.
The image management has been greatly improved to allow for multiple uploads and easier deletion of images. Serving video is always best done from a dedicated video streaming server and that is why our system works with YouTube. YouTube offers great facilities for uploading, converting and managing your video content. When you want to embed a video within one of your pages it's as simple as pasting the URL of your video and entering a suitable title, there is no need to mess with embed codes or editing the source HTML.
It should be noted that although the website is a great place to show off some pictures of recent items of interest or examples of work, if you are looking to display very large collections of images then using a dedicated image storage and display system like Google Photos is a more suitable option.
