Creating a page based on an instance module follows the same process regardless of its type; learn the exact steps here. Afterwards, simply edit the default settings and add content by going through the tabs detailed in this article, but remember these affect only the module of a page (orange-colored section from this structure).
To reach the tab bar of an instance module at any time, click the page name in the left side column of the CMS interface. You'll land on one of the module tabs with its identically colored boxes below it.
Start by switching between tabs from left to right and use the Edit/Save buttons located in the upper-right corner of each tab area to make changes in all the available boxes.
Details box: include the page in a category, edit its name and URL; if you change the latter, don't forget to make URL redirects.
Settings box: select the page status (pending, enabled, disabled), choose on which devices to appear (desktop, tablet, phone), apply one or multiple extra CSS classes to customize the display style of the module section.
You can use the Site Structure option to organize all the pages you create and the Menu Manager option to link them in the front-end nav menu.
Details box: enable the local, Facebook or DISQUS comments, which work via a widget already assigned to the default module layout.
Design Layouts box: change the default module layout(s) and even select one for the footer associated exclusively with this page.
These layout changes apply only to the page you're currently on; to create custom layouts that will automatically appear in all dedicated drop lists, learn more about the Layouts option.
Module Head tab
Page Title box: edit the page title and description or hide the whole section.
SEO Settings box: edit the page meta title, meta description and robots <META> tag (index, follow, noindex, nofollow).
Append HTML Snippets box: mostly useful for tracking codes.
Advanced Settings box: change the align/valign of the title/subtitle, and the number of columns on which they should be displayed for 5 different viewport widths, plus the nav menu position relative to the whole section (above, overlapping).
CSS Class(es) box: add extra CSS classes to the whole section or individually.
Where are the rest of the tabs?
They do not exist, this is an instance module that you can use to create a page entirely out of widgets. It generates a layout without the main Base Module widget the rest of the modules have.
- What else can I do? Go to the Layouts option in the CMS top menu, identify the layout by name (identical to the newly created module) and use the Layout Widgets Editor to drag & drop widgets on it.
- You'll still be able to assign the Base Module to this layout but nothing will happen because there's no content in it.
