Edit site pages and settings

Last Updated

This is the spot to learn about how to edit, create and rearrange the pages in your site's pages and primary navigation. You'll also learn how to edit page SEO settings.

 

The fine print

  • Site pages are separate from standalone Lead Pages on your account dashboard. However, if you would like to link to a Lead Page in your site header, here's how.

Access site pages

The site pages panel gives you the ability to rearrange pages in your site's navigation, add new pages, move back to and from draft and more.

To edit your site pages, select the Pages tab from the left-hand side of the builder.

Site homepage

Your site's homepage will have a home icon next to it in the pages listing. Every site template will have a page selected as the homepage.

Set a homepage

  1. Click the gear icon next to the page you'd like to set as a homepage.
  2. Select Edit Page Settings.
  3. Under page settings, click the button that reads, Set [page name] as my homepage.
  4. Click Save.

NOTE: Site homepages will be available at your root domain as well as the URL slug you've set in the page settings.

Edit page settings

To edit page settings, click the gear icon next to the page you'd like to edit, then "Edit Page Settings."

Name and URL

The "Page Name" will be displayed in your site's primary navigation.

The page slug you set for the page URL can either be the same as the "Page Name" or something different. The page URL cannot be the same as another page on your site.

Move a page to draft

Check the box next to "Mark as Draft Page" to move a page to draft and take it offline. This will make the page inaccessible to visitors.

NOTE: Marking a page as a draft will make the page inaccessible to users. Any links to this page will redirect to your site's 404 Error Page.

Hide page from navigation

In comparison to moving a page to draft, checking the box next to "Hide Page from Navigation" will allow you to keep the page public and available at its URL, but not a part of your site's primary navigation in its header.

Page SEO

You can set your page SEO title, keywords, and description of any site page by clicking on the gear icon next to the page title on the Pages tab, then "Edit Page Settings."

Search engine optimization (SEO) is a complex topic, so we won’t cover all the details here. The good news is that a lot of best practices are built into Leadpages already—such as mobile responsiveness and structured HTML.

For additional tips, check out Google’s Webmaster Guidelines. While you may not be able to implement every single best practice, their guide provides handy advice for optimizing your pages.

Some Leadpages users want to make sure they have an SEO H tag on their page. You can make sure of this by using the headline widget, as each size setting within the headline widget corresponds with an H tag like so:

  • Jumbo, Headline = <h1>
  • Subhead = <h2>
  • Small Subhead = <h3>

Duplicate a site page

To duplicate a site page, click the gear icon next to the page you'd like to duplicate, then click Duplicate.

Delete a site page

To delete a site page, click the gear icon next to the page you'd like to delete, then click Delete.

Add a new site page

To add a new page to your site:

  1. Click the + icon next to "Primary Navigation" on the Site Pages panel.
  2. Select Page.
  3. Choose a templated page type as well as a page name.
  4. Set a page slug to complete the URL where that page will be found on your site or use the "Mark as Draft Page" checkbox if you're not quite ready to go public with the page.
  5. Click Save.

Page types

Page types are simply a templated way to get you started on your site page. You can completely customize your page after selecting a page type and nothing about the name of the page type needs indicate the final goal for the page.

Arrange pages in primary navigation

To rearrange the position of your pages in your site's primary navigation, click and drag the page in the listing to move it.

Add a link to primary navigation

To add a link to your site's primary navigation:

  1. Click the + icon next to "Primary Navigation" on the Site Pages panel.
  2. Select Link.
  3. Choose one of the link options below to fit what you want the link to accomplish.

Add a page section link

If you'd like the link you're adding to your primary navigation to bring visitors to a page section on an existing site page, choose "Page Section," name it, and choose which page and section you'd like to link.

Add an external URL link

If you'd like the link you're adding to your primary navigation to bring visitors to an external URL, choose "External URL," name it, and enter the URL.

Add a landing page link

Choose the "Landing Page" option to add a link to a Lead Page in your primary navigation.

Link pages, either to a page section, external URL, or landing page will have a link symbol next to their name in the "Site Pages" listing. And if that link is directed to an existing page section, all pages will be highlighted together in the "Site Pages" listing, as any edits are universal to that single page.

 

Create sub navigation (drop-down) menu

To create a sub navigation menu, simply drag your chosen sub page over the top of another page in the Pages listing to create a drop-down menu in your primary navigation.

To remove a page from a sub navigation menu, drag the page to the left of the page listing and you'll see the drop-down disappear.

Hide a page in primary navigation

If you have a page you don't want linked in the primary navigation on the header of your site, you can choose to hide that page, but it will remain public.

To hide a page from primary navigation, simply click and drag the page into the "Hidden from Navigation" section in the Site Pages panel.

To un-hide a page, simply drag the page out of the "Hidden from Navigation" section into the "Primary Navigation" section.

Add a hidden site page

To create a new hidden page, click the + icon and follow the steps similar to those shown above to either add a hidden page or link to your site.

404 error page

A 404 error page is included on every site in order to make sure that if a visitor mis-types a URL on your site or visits the URL of a page that's been deleted, they'll be taken to a customized error page. This page will give visitors to ability to re-engage with your header navigation and can be customized just like any other site page.

NOTE: The site 404 error page will take the place of a Lead Page set as a 404 under that domain in your account settings when your site is published.

To customize your 404 error page, navigate to the Pages tab in the builder. Your 404 error page is listed under "Other Pages."

 

Customize your page content

The Leadpages Drag & Drop Builder allows for loads of customization to get your site looking exactly how you'd like it, representing your brand and business with a look to convert.
