Adding a page, subpage and a freeform page

Adding a page

You can add a page called "Development -Best Practices" to your project, and add subpages or freeform pages called "Unit Testing" and "Samples" under that page.

To create a page:

  1. Navigate to your project’s home page.
  2. Click the link Edit Project pages. The project’s page editor opens.
  3. Click the link Add new page.
  4. Enter "Development - Best Practices" as the page name.

    Note: Ensure that there are no special characters in the name you choose.

  5. Enter a description that best suits the name and activities that are overseen under this page.
  6. Click Save to create the page. "Development - Best Practices" now appears as a page next to your home page.

To add a subpage or a freeform page

  1. Navigate to your project’s homepage.
  2. Navigate to the page you wish to add subpages or freeform pages to.
  3. Click the link Edit Project pages. The editor for that page opens.
  4. Click the link Edit against the page under which you wish to add a subpage to.
  5. Click the link Add New subpage.
  6. Enter "Samples" as the subpage name.

    Note: Ensure that there are no special characters in the name you choose.

  7. Enter a description that best suits the name and activities that are overseen under this subpage.
  8. Browse to select the icon you wish to use to represent the subpage.
  9. Browse to select the rollover icon for the subpage.
  10. Click Save to create the subpage. The subpage "Samples" will now appear as a subpage under the page "Development –Best Practices."

Note: You can set up a project page to hold content directly, or use the page as a container to hold subpages. If you add a component or subpage to a page, you will no longer be able to add subpages to that page until these are removed. If you add a subpage to a page, you will no longer be able to add components or freeform pages, until all subpages are removed. However, you can override this behavior by adding components, subpages, and freeform pages directly to the Subversion repository of your project. When you do that, all the elements entered will be accessible from the project page.

Note: If you have added a rollover icon for a subpage, you have to ensure that a regular icon has been added too. If the regular icon is not added, then the rollover icon will not be displayed.

Note: Sometimes you, as a project owner, may not see Project Pages links like "Edit this page", "Edit project pages", and so on in your project. This is probably because you don't have a "www" directory in the trunk of your Subversion repository. If you have permission to add folders, you can reinstate the "www" directory. Also please ensure that your site has the option "Enable ALM Lifecycle Manager" enabled. This will allow the project page editing tools to function correctly.
