What is the Webpage Builder?
The central idea with the Webpage Builder is that it allows you to create a 'one-stop' online location where the public can learn about and participate in different projects. It can be just a single page for a single project, or a complex website structure with many sub-categories.
In practice, you create pages and collect them under a front page. The Webpage Builder module comes with an unlimited number of project pages, so feel free to create as many pages as your project requires! Take a look at what pages can look like by browsing the demo website found in this link.
The webpage builder allows you to:
- Tell stakeholders more about your project
- Inform participants about events and deadlines
- Include links to your questionnaire
- Get comments from the public
- Allow people to share the project on social media
Pages and its structure
The create and manage the content you create with the Webpage builder, go to Pages in Maptionnaire. Pages are categorized according to their publication status (Drafts, Published, Archived). Click New page to start a new draft.
Internal name and description can be set in Page settings.
Page title, description and image come from the Card settings.
To edit, preview, or view a page, click the buttons under Edit, Preview or View
Tags are the tags you have set in the page settings. You can also search for pages by tag:
Language is the language of the page that you have set in page settings. Translation group is a code shared by the pages that are different language versions of the same content and have been linked together under Languages.
To Archive, Restore (if archived), Delete, Transfer, Copy or Bulk edit pages, tick the checkboxes next to the pages in question and click the Actions button.
To start a new post, simply click the New page button on top of the screen.
Below is a picture of the editor view. On the left side is a pull-out menu for the settings, and on the right a pull-out menu for the element library. In the middle is the draft of your page; it is composed of elements that you choose from the element library.
To draft your page, choose the content elements from the element library on the right.
You can change the order of the elements by dragging and dropping, and also delete and copy them by clicking the three dots on each element. To edit a specific element, click on the element in the draft and an edit window opens on the right. For each setting, you can get additional instructions by clicking the ? symbol.
The settings menu is on the left, and includes for example the publication visibility times, social media sharing buttons, and tags. If you are also using a card in your project, you can set it up here.
Finally, you can preview your project page and publish it from the top right corner menu.
After you have created webpages, learn how you can collect them under a single front page.
