Creating and Translating Pages/Articles

Creating pages and articles

To create a new page or article, simply click on the Create New button. The fields there are pretty much self-explanatory.

  1. Title = the title of the page or article
  2. Permalink = this is where you can enter a search engine – friendly permalink that will be used in as the page or article’s url. TutorPro GOLD will automatically suggest one to you based on the title, but you are free to change this (especially if you are working with localization – see more about this below). The permalink should not have any spaces or characters that you would not find in a typical url.
  3. Type = Choose whether this is a site page or a blog article.
  4. Category = Select from one of the categories you created before
  5. Language = Select the language of this article/page
  6. Body = This is where you enter the content of your article or page. You can also insert images using the built-in file manager.
  7. published = Check to publish this article/page
  8. Display link on main menu = Check if you want to display a link to this page on the main menu (only if it is a page). If it is an article, this parameter is not used.
  9. Display link on footer = Check if you want to display a link on the footer menu (for pages only).
  10. Featured on the homepage = Check if you want this featured on the homepage. Make sure that one page is marked with this flag. You can mark as many articles as you want but only the most recent 5 will be featured on the front page.

Localization (translation)

TutorPro gives you the opportunity to have your site in different languages, including pages and articles. When you create a page or article, you select the language for it. In the front end, the page/article will only appear if the current site language matches the language of the page or article. So it is advisable that you create multiple versions of each page or article, one for each language available in your site. However, the same page in different languages should be given the same permalink to avoid users from getting a 404 error.

For Example: If you have a page called About us in English with the permalink about-us, and your site uses English and Spanish, then it is advisable that you create another page with the same permalink about-us, but select Spanish as the language. This way when the user is on the about-us page in english and decides to switch the site to Spanish, then the application will re-load the spanish version of that page with the same permalink. Note that you can have the same permalink as long as the language is different. But you cannot have the same permalink multiple times for the same language.
