Update webpage properties and the design of the webpage.  Add widgets to the page—update page layout and properties.

Following is the sample screenshot of the design webpage.

As can be seen above, the page is divided into two columns-

  1. The left column is the design area, where you can change the web pages’ design by adding, re-arranging, and removing the widgets.
  2. The right column is the webpage preview area, where all your applied changes will be displayed immediately.

The public URL of the web page is displayed at the top-left corner. Click on the URL to open the webpage in a new tab.

Web Page Types

There are two types of web pages-

  1. System Provided Webpages: These are the pre-defined web pages provided by SportsPlus, which you can customize but cannot delete. For example, programs, staff members, articles.
  2. User Added Webpages: These are the custom web pages that can be added/created by you or any of your organization staff members. You can delete the user added web pages.

  • Priority: Priority tells the importance of a web page. When presented as a list, higher priority web pages are displayed ahead of the lower priority webpages.
