Page options

As soon as you go into Pages in the control menu, you'll see a list of your website's pages, each with a gear icon () to the right of it. Clicking that icon gives you access to a wide range of options that only apply to that specific page.

Publish

When you first create a new page, it will be set to unpublished, which means only you can see it. In the control menu's list of pages, you can easily tell which ones are unpublished by the eye icon (). When you're ready, click the publish toggle to allow people to visit the page on your website. You can toggle the published status of any page except the home page, which is always published.

Show link in main menu

This is pretty much what it sounds like. When you first create a new page, by default it is set to show in the main menu, and you'll be able to order it using the page ordering tool - but it won't actually show in the menu on your website until you publish the page.

Show link in footer menu

Also what it sounds like! The footer menu is located at the foot, or bottom, of the page. New pages aren't set to show a link here by default, but you can add them with this toggle. You can control the order of pages set to show here with the page ordering tool.

Password protect

Turn this on to lock access to this page on your website. Visitors will need to enter a password to view the content. To set the password, in the control menu go to Settings > Other settings > Page password. In the control menu's list of pages, you can easily tell which ones are password protected by the padlock icon ().

Rename link

You can change the link name of any of your pages at any time, including the home page. These names are used in the site menus. By default, the page address will update to match the new name. The site menus will automatically update to use the new address, but if you have added links to it from any other place, such as within your page content, those links will no longer work. You can also edit the page address independently of the link name.

SEO (Search Engine Optimisation)

This option allows you to manage SEO settings for each individual page. If you leave these blank, the page will use the default values in your site settings.

Custom header code

This one's for advanced players! Handy if you need to add css, javascript or meta tags (such as Google site verification) on this page only.

Edit

Clicking this will load the page in the editor screen - exactly the same as if you clicked the page name instead of the gear icon, a level up.

Delete

This will take you to the delete option, if it's available for that page. You can't delete the home page, nor pages with sub pages.

View on your site

Launches the web page in a new browser tab.

Revisions

Allows you to roll back your web page content to another save point. More about revisions.
