Pages

As a contributor, you can add, edit, and publish content on pages.

The majority of your work will be to maintain the content of the pages on your website. Pages can contain text, pictures, and links (to pages, documents, or email addresses).

Page States

There are five page states. This table will help you understand what each state means on the gray side menu.
