There are many different types of pages in Glasshouse, each with its own functionality and purpose. Creating pages covers the basic steps of creating and editing pages. A brief summary of each page type is below.
The most basic page type. It contains content, and has no customised functionality or special features. Basic pages are good for simple content like text, images and media.
Collection pages display resources which are organised via topics. Collection pages are great for Question and Answer pages, or resources pages where information is grouped via specific themes. Visit Content curation with Glasshouse for information about setting up collections, topics and resources.
The page displayed when an error is produced by the website. Error pages can be created for individual error types, so for example, a 404 "Page not found" can look different from a 403 "Forbidden" page.
Holder pages are similar to Home pages, and display links to other pages on the site. Linked pages can be any pages, not just child pages. Once the Holder page has been created, select the pages to link to from the Choose pages to link to dropdown menu at the bottom of the main Content tab.
This is the home page for a site. Users browsing to your site will see this page first. The Home page behaves like a basic page in terms of functionality and adding content.
Module pages display child pages as a series of clickable panels, and allow the child pages to be packaged as SCORM 1.2 files. Content can also be added to appear below the child panels. Once the Module page has been created, click on the Advanced admin tab, and add the text into the Content for the footer field.
Redirects the user to either another page on the same website, or a page on an external website.
A Registration page allows users to sign up for access to the site. Multiple Registration pages can be used on one site, and they can be styled individually, or have different functionality.
Sequence pages are one of the main page types used in in Glasshouse. Sequence pages are great for creating and displaying blocks. Visit Adding a basic content block for more information on blocks. Sequence pages can have several different layout styles.
A Virtual page uses the content of another page. This is different from a redirector page, as a redirector essentially links one location on the website to another, while a virtual page copies the content of the other page. Editing the page the virtual page is based on will, in turn, edit the copied virtual page.
