The most widely used page type on our website is called “Multi-Column Page.” This page type allows for one or two columns of content (in addition to the left navigation).

Name and set up the new folder

Folder Name: Enter a name for the new folder. This should be a shortened heading for the page that you are creating.

Follow these naming requirements: Lowercase letters only, word spaces replaced with hyphen, and leading and trailing spaces are not allowed. Numbers can be used, but no punctuation other than a dash.

Example: If your new page will have the heading “Program Information,” the folder name can be “program-information”

Placement Folder: This should be correct (if you started by selecting the folder where you want the new page placed).

Name and set up the new folder

Display Name: Enter the text that will be used to create the button/link in the left navigation.

Keep this text short: One to three words if possible. Use upper-case and lower-case letters and spaces to make it a readable link.

Examples: “Program Information” or “About Us”

Include Folder Contents in Nav: Defaults to “Yes” (adds a link to the left navigation for this new page).

Include Folder in Breadcrumbs: Defaults to “Yes” (adds the title of this page to the breadcrumbs on the new page).

Folder or Page is Password Protected: Defaults to “No.”
If the page needs to be password protected (requires login with Willamette credentials).

Important: Selecting “Yes” in this field does NOT password protect the page, it just puts a lock icon in the left navigation. Contact to add password-protection to a page.

Site Root Folder: Defaults to “No” (resets the left navigation at this page level).

Auxiliary Display Name: Leave blank
