How Intranet Content Is Organized (3 of 6)


Pages are web pages that are displayed to users when they browse a site. For example, when a user first logs in, they are show the home page. Shown below is a home page being edited. The red rectangle outlines the area of the page.

There are two types of pages: content pages and widget pages.

  • Content Page
    This can be a single HTML page, or, it can contain other pages – allowing you to create an unlimited hierarchy of pages. This capability can be helpful if you’d like to offer a group of users the ability to create and manage a wiki-area on the intranet site.
  • Widget Page
    This type of page can host one more widgets that present information from multiple sources on one page. The home page of a site is usually a widget page. In addition to allowing unlimited widget pages, the new release also allows related pages to be organized in a tree. Child pages are linked from their parent page, and inherit the parent’s security permissions.

In addition, any page can have one or more sub-pages. When a sub-page is added to a page, it inherits the page's permissions, and a link to the sub-page is automatically shown above the page.

TIP: When customers first get started, the often add new pages as sub-pages of the home page, as it is easy to do using the Toolbox. This then automatically adds a link to the sub-pages above the home page, which gets messy quickly. Instead, use the instructions below to add new parent pages to your intranet.
