There are several techniques you can use to move pages or content. You can choose your favorite.

Quick move

A quick way to move any type of record (contents or pages) is to use the List module.

  1. Select the List module
  2. From the Pagetree, select the page that contains the element you want to move
  3. Click the Move page  button
    If you don't see this button, check the Extended view checkbox and then click the move button
  4. In the Move Element screen, position the element by
    1. if moving to another page, click that page from the pagetree below Select position of the element (not from the Pagetree column!)
    2. click the desired position pointer
  5. Save and publish the records as usual

Move page (drag-and-drop)

To move a page to a new location in the page tree

  1. Click and hold the page button  for the page you want to move
  2. Drag the page to the new location

    Blue lines appear to assist with positioning the page.
    • If the blue line highlights a page title when you release the mouse button, the page you are moving will move beneath the blue highlighted page, becoming a child of that page

      This page move will result in Multimedia being the first sub-page, or child page, of Form. It will be appear before Thanks, at the same hierarchical tree level as Thanks.

    • If the blue line is a very fine horizontal line between two pages when you release the mouse button, the page you are moving will move to the same position as the blue horizontal line.

      This page move will result in Multimedia being located between Departments and Demo, at the same hierarchical tree level as both.

    • You cannot move a page as a child of itself
  3. Release the mouse button
  4. Save and publish the page as usual

Move content element within a page

Up or down within in a page

  1. Using either the Page or List module, click the up/down button
    • If using the List module, verify that the Extended View checkbox is selected
    • Refer to the graphics below that highlight the up/down buttons
  2. Repeat until the content element is in the correct position
  3. Save and publish the contents as usual

Between columns within a page

  1. Edit the content element
  2. On the General tab change the value of the Column drop-down menu to the desired column
    • Normal is the "main" column for all templates
    • Left is the navigation column (in templates that use this column)
    • Border is the right-floating column (in templates that use this column)
  3. Save and close the content element
  4. Review the ordering of content elements within the column and adjust if necessary (see "Up or down within a page," above)
  5. Publish the contents as usual
