Create a Basic Page

The ‘Basic Page’ content type is used to create a generic page for the purpose of displaying information. This is the most commonly used content type on the Tyndale website.

To create a basic page, log in with to the Tyndale website with your user account. You will be directed to your My Workbench page. Or, any time while you’re logged in, click the “My Workbench” link in the site footer.

At the top of the page, click the “Create Content” tab.

On the next page, click the “Basic Page” link. This will take you to the edit form for your new page.

Fields in the Basic Page content type

  • Title: required.

  • Body: this contains all of the content of your page—text, images, links and other information. You can format the text and add images and links using the text editor. See:
  • File uploads: this is a way for you to upload files that you can then link to on your page for users to view/download, for example a PDF or image. See how to upload and link to a file.

  • Embed Video Top and Embed Video Bottom: insert a YouTube or Vimeo video. See how to insert a video

  • Top banner image: this is an optional graphic which displays across the top of the page, just under the main menu. It’s not usually necessary, but may be included in special cases. If you have the capability to create this, you may do so. Please see Create a Top Banner Image for guidelines. If you need a banner but aren’t able to make one, contact the webteam for help.

  • Site Section (required): this is the area of the site where your content “lives”. You have been assigned to one or more site sections when your user account was created. You will need to select the relevant section for your page.

  • Page images: this is another way to upload images for inclusion on your page. See how to upload and insert images

  • Workflow: Draft and Ready for Review—the default state of new content is Draft, and it is not published on the website. When you are ready for it to be published, select Ready for Review and save the page. This will send it to the webteam for approval. More information on content approval

  • Vertical tabs at the bottom: Menu Settings and URL path settings are the only two you will normally need to use. See how to create a menu link and how to create a URL.

  • Revisions: every time you make a change and save a piece of content, a new revision, or snapshot, of the page is created. You can use revisions to keep track of changes to a page and roll it back to a previous version if necessary. More information on content revisions
