Pages and Popups

The Pages and Popups section is a major part of your site.

  • Pages allows you to reorder, manage and create new pages in your site. Organize your site’s widgets by using multiple pages to improve your visitors’ experience and increases the chance that they will find the information they need.
  • Popups allows you add new popups to your site. Popups are a type of small window that appears in a web page. Popups can be set up to appear when clicked as a link or automatically as an action from a personalization rule. Use popups to grab user’s attention or provide information without having to change pages.

Note: You can create a maximum of 1000 pages on a site.

Add Pages

To add new pages to your site:

  1. In the left panel, click “Pages”.
  2. Click “+ New Page”
  3. Select a page type.
    Page templates are pre-populated with relevant widgets. The Page URL page type links the page to another URL instead of creating a new page. Selecting a dynamic page template automatically adds a connected Internal Collection. For more information, see Dynamic Pages.
  4. Type a title for your new page, and a URL, if necessary.
  5. Click “+ Add Page” and start creating your new page.

Reorganize Pages

To reorganize the order pages display on your site:

  1. In the left panel, click “Pages”.
  2. Click and drag a page to move it where you want it to appear in order.
  3. Drag a page slightly to the right to nests the page as a sub-page of the page above.

Note: Navigation can have up to 3 levels.

Page Settings

Access page settings by clicking the “settings” icon next to each page.
You have the following options:

  • Rename. Rename the page in the editor.

    Note: This does not change the page URL.

  • Hide in navigation. Make the page hidden on the navigation menu. It will still be visitable by the direct URL.
  • Duplicate. Creates an exact copy of the page.
  • Lock for Client editing. Lock pages so clients can only view, not edit or delete.
  • SEO. Access all the SEO settings for this page.
  • Set password. Set a password for the page. For more information, see Password Protected Pages.

SEO

Search engine optimization (SEO) is the process of improving the visibility of a site or a web page in a search engine’s un-paid search results. Sometimes this is called ‘natural’ or ‘organic’ traffic. From the Site’s SEO menu, you can edit the page Title, Description, and Keywords. You can also edit the header HTML for that page only. For more information, see Site SEO Settings.

Tip: We recommend adding SEO information (title and descriptions) on the page level, so each page can have a unique title and description. This is more beneficial than having one title and description shared across the entire site.

Prevent Search Engines from Indexing a Page

For maximum SEO benefits, all pages of your site are discoverable by search engines. However, if you would like to instruct search engines to not index a certain page, you can do that in the page settings.

  1. In the left panel, click “Pages”.
  2. Click the “settings” icon for the specific page.
  3. Click “SEO”.
  4. Click the “No Index” toggle. This blocks search engines from crawling this page so that it does not appear in search.

This action will only affect a single page. You will need to mark this setting for each page you do not want to be indexed.

Popups

Warning: Only available on SiteBuilder Professional and Ultimate!

Add Popups

To add popups:

  1. In the left panel, click “Pages”, and then click the “Popups” tab.
  2. Click “+ New Popup”.
  3. Select a popup type. The popup type pre-populates the popup with widgets.
  4. Type a name for your popup, and click “+ Add Popup”.

Activate Popups

Unlike a page generated in the navigation automatically, a popup can only be triggered by being clicked as a link or by using a site personalization rule.

There are several widgets that allow you to link to a popup, such as Photo Gallery image links, text, and buttons. When editing the links for these widgets, select the popup option to open the popup selector.

Use Personalization Rules to Condition a Popup

Note

  • Popup triggers only occur once per session. A session is any activity on the site and remains active until at least 30-60 minutes have passed.
  • To see your personalization rule in action, try
    1. clearing your cookies and cache,
    2. using another browser, or
    3. waiting until the time has expired.

You can create a popup using site personalization. When you create a personalization rule, in the “Add Action” field, select “Popup”.

For more information on site personalization, see Personalization Rules.

Edit Popups

A popup is very similar to a page. You can add new rows, columns and insert any widget into a popup. To adjust the size of the popup, drag the bottom right corner.

To edit the settings for a popup:

  1. In the left panel, click “Pages”, and then click the “Popups” tab.
  2. Click the “settings” icon for specific popup.
    You have the following options:
    • Rename. Rename the popup in the editor.

      Note: This does not change the page URL.

    • Duplicate. Creates an exact copy of the popup.
    • Delete. Deletes the popup. This action is irreversible unless you have a backup.
