Private Pages

The ability to easily create private discussions and coordination pages is a powerful HotDoodle feature. A website can have externally facing pages that reflect distinct and carefully reviewed content, while there also can be private pages only accessible by company or organization members.

For example, the external page might announce a ball game and fund raiser and would give a description of the event and the incentives to attend. The private pages might have lists of volunteers, to-do lists, discussions, and planning calendars for the event. These private pages are configured to be visible only to members of a group or specified individual website members.


Add a Private Page or Sub-page

Steps: How to Add a Private Page or Sub-page

1. From the HotDoodle Toolbar, click on the "Pages/Menus" tab.

2. Click on the "Add Page" button.

3. Click to select the type of page from the drop-down menu.

4. Select from the drop-down menu where the page will appear in the navigation menu.

The Top of Hierarchy option makes the new page a main page and displays it in the main navigation menu. Selecting to place it under another page displays the new page as a sub-page.

5. Click on the "Continue" button.

6. Type in a Page Name.

The page name will appear in the navigation menu. Optional, type in a Page URL Alias, which will appear in the url when the page is viewed by visitors. See: Create a Page Alias

7. Click to remove the check mark next to [Allow public access?], which make the page invisible to the public.

The page may be changed back to public by adding the check mark back into the box.

8. Add a check mark in the box next to [Pop up?] if the page should pop up in a new window or add a check mark in the box next to [Show in menus?] to add the page to the navigation menu.

9. Click on the "Save" button.

The new page appears in the website in edit mode.
