Managing Page Settings
When creating a website with Boxmode, you can add, duplicate, delete your pages, and manage their general, SEO, and social networks settings directly in the editor. To access these adjustments, click the home icon at the top panel, and you will see the list of all web pages presented on the site.
Adding a page
To add a new page, click the Add Page button in the drop-down menu, and a new page will appear in the list. Moreover, you can duplicate and delete a page by choosing the corresponding tab in the context menu.
Note: You can’t delete the Home page.
If you need to customize a page’s settings, hover on a specific page’s name and click the ellipsis icon that appears. Then, in the context menu, you need to hit Settings.
There are three tabs: General, SEO, and Social Networks. Let’s view them in more detail.
Here you can specify the page’s name, its URL, and set it as a Home page.
In this tab, you can optimize the page and, in such a way, increase its ranking in search engines. Paste the page’s title (meta title) and description (meta description) that will appear in search engine results.
In the Keywords field, add relevant words and phrases that describe or summarize the content on the page. Search engines may analyze these keywords when indexing pages. You can find more information about keyword research in our How to Do Keyword Research for SEO blog post.
If this page is a complete or partial duplicate of another page, you need to insert the link to the master page in the Canonical Link field. It will prevent search engines from penalizing the site for duplicate content issues.
If the page is under construction and you don’t want search engines to index it, enable the Block Search indexing (noindex site) option. In case you want to restrict search engines from crawling on the links of the page, enable the Disallow Crawling Links (nofollow) option. You can learn about SEO settings for a whole project in our SEO Settings for Page and Project article. Moreover, explore the SEO settings for links with our Advanced Link Settings article.
Promoting the page on social media platforms can help you drive traffic to your website. In this tab, it’s possible to customize how the page will look on social networks. For example, you can add an image from your computer or Asset Library, define the page’s title and description.
When all pages are ready, they are automatically added to the navigation menu created with the Navigation Menu widget.
Note: The Navigation Menu widget helps synchronize all created pages with the website structure automatically. But if you add a new page later, you’ll need to manually create an item in the Navigation Menu and set the appropriate redirects, including custom ones. That’s why we advise you to add the widget after adding all the necessary pages.
We hope this article has helped you understand how to set up your website’s pages.
