Completing Page Elements

About Completing Page Elements | Pages may contain different element types based on their schemas. Learn how to complete each element type in the Edit tab.


The Edit tab displays all possible pieces of content for a page. Because content varies from page to page, not every page will have values for every element.

Elements marked Required must have a value before the checking in the page. An asterisk (*) displays next to the required element in the Index View mode. If the user doesn't enter a value and saves the page, the asterisk turns red after the user expands the element.

Version Notes: CMS 10.5

If the user doesn't enter a value and saves the page, the asterisk turns red upon save.

Incomplete Required Element

It is necessary to check in a page before it is published. The website administrator determines which elements are required.

If values are added, the content displays on the page as prescribed by the built-in stylesheets. If optional values are omitted, that portion of the page is not displayed. The Preview tab shows the content entered on the edit form as it will appear when published.

The following topics describe how to complete the various types of elements.
