2.1: Creating a New Page

  • Page ID
  • Page Classifications

    Each page on the LibreTexts has a classification, which can be view via the Page Settings expandable

    The page settings can be expanded or collapsed via the "plus" button on the top.

    Advanced: Page Hierarchy

    Libretexts libraries follow a specialize site structure that is optimized for users. Each page is classified as either Book/Unit, Chapter or Section/Page. Model organizations can be found here, but only three are typically used in the LibreTexts:


    Figure \(\PageIndex{3}\): Model Organizations to follow.

    There is no limit to the number of Book/Unit classes that can be nested. However, subpages (i.e., Sections before Sections like the middle organization) are to be avoided with exception of using it for exercises for a specific textbook section.

    Making a New Page

    1. On the black toolbar, click New.
    2. Select one of the following page default classifications:
      • Book/Unit
      • Chapter
      • Section/Page

    Not all three options should be available since the organization must follow those in Figure \(\PageIndex{3}\). For example, the available page classifications if you are making a page that is below a Book/Unit will be:

    1. Click the Create button.

    Add Content and Edit

    1. Title your page.
    2. Replace any instructional text with your content.
    3. If applicable, add images, videos or tables to enhance your content.
    4. Click Save.

    If you create a Book/Unit or Chapter page the page will come with some code that looks like ShowOrg(). That is the automatic heirarchy system discussed in Section 3.2 of the Construction guide.

    Best to just save

    Both the DekiScript code (red box with code in it) at the top of the page, and any references to article type tags (such as the line "Tags recommended by the template…") determine how the page behaves. If you see these lines on newly created pages, do not remove them.
