Why use single-use custom content panes?

Single-use custom content panes allow you to add a chunk of content to a single page on your site (e.g. adding a mission statement to the homepage).

NOTE: If you wish to display the same chunk of content on multiple pages, see Creating and Editing Reusable Custom Content Panes.

Creating a single-use custom content pane

  1. Navigate to the page where you wish to place the content pane.
  2. Click the 'Customize this page' button at the bottom on the page.
  3. A blue 'Content' box should appear somewhere near the top of the page. Click the plus button inside of this box.

  5. You will need to enter text into three main areas.
    • The 'Administrative Title' is necessary so that you can easily recognize it when editing the page later.
    • The 'Title' is what will display as a heading for this chunk of content on the page.
    • The 'Body' will be the main content of the pane.

  6. Click 'Finish' at the bottom of the editing page.
  7.  The content pane will appear under the light blue box. You can drag this to where you want it to be by clicking on the four-arrow symbol in the top right corner of the pane and dragging it to its desired location.
  8. Click 'Save' at the bottom of the screen to save the content and its placement.
