Pages

Pages

Pages are places for your content.  That content can be text, images, or even your own HTML.  The layout of the page is pre-configured by the theme you've chosen.  Add, edit or delete pages in the Pages Settings.

URL

The default URL is based upon the title you've given the page.  You have the freedom to change this URL by clicking Edit next to the permalink.

Content

The content section is where you create your subject matter for the page.  Basic layout tools are provided in the content toolbar, allowing you to modify the text styles, font, and add media.

The content toolbar also includes the Advanced HTML Editing button.  This provides you with the flexibility to to edit the source for the page content.  Remember, with great power comes great responsibility!  The following warning is displayed when clicking the Advanced button the first time:

Advanced HTML Editing allows you access to the code for your pages and posts, including the HTML and inline CSS. Changes and edits to the raw HTML must be coded by hand, but doing so can provide greater flexibility.

This feature gives you freedom to play, but be careful - with freedom comes responsibility! If you make a mess of your page's layout, you'll have to clean it up yourself; Nimbus Customer Support cannot provide support for website pages and blog posts which have been manually edited.  

 

Images

If you'd like to add an image to your page, you can drag it to the file upload drop zone on the right side of the page or select it from your Assets Gallery.  This is a special gallery for you to upload images you want to use in blog posts or web pages.  Once an image is uploaded into the Assets gallery, click the gallery icon in the content toolbar to insert images from the gallery into the web page.  Double-click the image to edit its attributes.

Video

If you'd like to add video to your web page, you can use one of our video integrations like YouTube or Vimeo.  Once you've linked your account, videos uploaded to these sites can be inserted into a page by clicking on the video icon.

Adding files to Pages

Nimbus allows you to upload and host files. To upload a file, go to the Files > Files menu, and upload the file you want to use. Once the file is uploaded, right-click on the view/play button and copy the URL (also known as "link" or "URL", depending on the browser). You can then go back to your pages editor and create a link to your file with the web address. For more information on using files in Nimbus, click here.

Sub-Navigation

With the Page Attributes Module, you can assign a Page to a Parent Page. As long as that Parent Page is listed in your Menu, this will allow you the freedom to organize your information in many ways.

Now, make sure to add your Parent Page to the Menu, and you get this!

    Hi, so far I'm fairly happy with Nimbus. I'm just having a little trouble inserting vimeo videos into my posts/pages.

    As per the instructions I've linked to my vimeo page. When clicking on Add Video the Vimeo square logo comes up but nothing happens when I click on it.

    Has anyone else got the vimeo player to work?

    Cheers,

    Steven
