OmniUpdate – Create a new page

Written by Michael Ryan on March 25, 2016

Creating new pages has been made easy! When you create a new page, you’ll get to choose a new template, and your page will already start with a navigation panel and styles to make your page fit in with the rest of the site. Below are instructions to create your page.

Step 1: Log into Omniupdate — read the Log in to OmniUpdate tutorial.

Step 2: Navigate to your site directory — To reach the site directory, see the content button at the top of your page in Omniupdate. Next, navigate to the root directory by clicking the home icon. If it is grey, then you are already there!

From the root you can see a list of sites, each tagged with the foldericon. Find yours and open it to view the contents of your site.

For example, if you want to work in the Sustainability site, you’ll know you’re in it if you see sustainability-dirat the top of your page.

Step 3: To create a new page — select the new-button button. This will present you with options for the layout of your new page.

Step 4: Select a layout — You’ll be given three choices on how you want your page designed. Here’s the details on each option:

One Column Page — One editable region of content spans entire page. Option of a horizontal navigation along the top of the page.

Two Column Page — Content spans most of the page region. This layout is designed to with space for navigation on the left. A horizontal navigation along the top of the page is optional in this layout.

Three Column Page — Two editable regions are available — one for main content in the center and another for side content on the right. The left is reserved for vertical navigation, while the top of the page is available for horizontal navigation.

Horizontal headers are usually used for overarching navigation that’s different from the side navigation. It is typically used in very large sites.


If you are using a One or Two column page, you can always add additional columns within your editable content regions by using snippets. To learn more about snippets, visit the Snippets Tutorial.

Step 5: Choose a file name and a page title

File Name: This is the name of your file. This is seen in the URL when someone is on their website.

Page Title: This is what will appear at the top of your page.

Remember: You can always change these options later.



And you’re done! Our next tutorial covers how to edit an existing page.
