Text of adding a page to a Google Site

Adding a Page to Site

Once you have opened your website, click on the document with a “+” in the top right corner.

Name your page.  This name will also appear at the end of your URL

Select a Template to use.  When you create a new page for your Google Site, you can choose from among a number of different page types, depending on what type of content will be on that page. Below is some information about each page type and how you might use it.

Web page
A web page is the simplest kind of page; you can write content, embed gadgets, and arrange it however you like. The web page has standard formatting controls like bold, italic, and underline, bullets, and more. You can attach documents from your hard drive to the bottom of the page, and you can let other site collaborators comment on your pages. Google Sites periodically saves versions of your page as you make edits, so it’s easy to go back to earlier versions of the page to make comparisons or undo changes.

Much like a blog, announcement pages display posts you make to the page in chronological order, starting with the most recent. For example, an announcement page would be great for keeping a record of weekly meeting notes, while providing quick access to the most recent meeting info.

File cabinet
File cabinet pages let you store and organize files from your computer’s hard drive, making it an easy way to share files with other users of your site. Anyone subscribed to the page will be notified when files are added, changed, or removed.

List page
List pages let you make and organize lists of information. Items on the list are easy to add, edit, and remove, and viewers of the list can sort it by any column. Like the file cabinet page, subscribers are notified when items are added, changed, or removed.

Start page (Google Apps Premier users only)
A start page is a page that can be customized by each of its viewers (a little bit like an iGooglepage for your site!) to show a personalized set of gadgets. Site collaborators can still add content that all viewers see, but that section remains separate from the section that can be personalized.

Select a location:  Where do you want your page to appear? You can place the page at the level as the other pages on your site or you can place the page under another page.
