One of the main goals of most content management systems is to give non-technical users the ability to edit content or add new pages without having to call the IT department at every turn. Similarly, being able to add and edit pages gives the editing team the freedom to decide how content is structured and used. 

Agility CMS aims at simplifying content creation and editing for non-technical users, which is deeply intertwined with our content-first philosophy. We offload the task of page management to the content team, giving them the tools to update pages and the sitemap without the need for a developer, speeding the content creation process. 

Pages are a fundamental part of Agility CMS. In fact, without pages, this is what makes Agility CMS different from other Headless CMSs.

Let’s take a closer look at how pages work and explain how developers and marketers can leverage their functionality to create memorable digital experiences. 

What Are Pages in Agility CMS?

In Agility CMS, a page is the main representation of the website structure. To see the structure of any page, you need to go to the ‘Pages’ section at the top of Agility CMS.

There are four different Page Management elements in Agility CMS: 

  • Page: A web page with a template and module zones.
  • Dynamic Page: A web page with dynamic elements. 
  • Folder: A virtual folder to group pages that can’t be accessed as a resource in its own right. 
  • Link: Links can be used to place a link in the map to another page, a document, or to a completely different website. 

The Elements of A Page In Agility CMS

  • Content: Here’s where you can change the structure and content of your website. Here you can add new modules or rearrange the structure of the content zones.
  • SEO: In this area, you can add metadata, keywords, and descriptions of your content; this content can be linked to both a module or a page.
  • Settings: Here you can change the page type and the template you’re using as well as rearrange the module you’re using.
  • Scripts: This is where you enter any JavaScript that needs to be run on the page. Think of things like tracking pixels or Google Analytics events. 
  • Scheduling: This function allows you to pick a specific date and time where your content will be published. 
  • History: In this section, you can recover a past version of your page or find which changes have been made. 
  • Alerts:  Alerts give you the option to create a list of users who will be notified when workflow occurs on an item.
  • Security: Security settings work globally and determine the permissions the user has on all items, allowing you to give users specific roles on specific items.
