Add Pages to Your Site

Showcase your organization skills by grouping information onto specific pages. For example, you can include a page about you, a page about your education, a page about your work experience or any extracurricular activities, a page about any Salesforce apps or projects you’ve completed, and maybe even some photos to show your school campus, community, or volunteer participation. The number of pages you choose and what content you put on them is up to you. For this project, you add the following three pages.

  • About Me
  • Experience
  • Education

Now that you’re thinking about how to group your information to show off your awesome organizational skills, let’s create the pages.

  1. On the Home tab, click the down arrow next to the Page Properties Gear Icon icon.
  2. Select New Page at the bottom of the menu.
  3. Click Standard Page.
  4. Choose a content layout. This defines where content on your page is displayed. For this exercise, choose Flexible Layout. Click Next.
  5. Enter About Me in the Name field.
  6. Click Create . Look at your page and start thinking about how you would like to fill in that page. You can finish that in the next unit.
  7. At the top of your page, click the main tab (it might now be called About Me).
  8. Now that you’ve created your About Me page, Repeat steps 1 to 6 to complete the Experience and Education pages.
