Create a Page
On the main CMS Administration page, look for the Create Page form.
This form contains three fields: Title, URL Stub, and Parent page. The URL Stub is the part of the URL after the site address. To create a directory, use a trailing '/' after the URL stub. Any pages that are not directories will have a trailing '.php' at the end of the page.
URL Stub of 'admissions/transfer' will be visible at hilo.hawaii.edu/admissions/transfer.php.
URL Stub of 'admissions/forms/' will be visible at hilo.hawaii.edu/admissions/forms/
URL Stub of 'uhh/vcaa/articulationagreement/UHMNursingDentalHygiene-UHHiloDNP' will be visible at hilo.hawaii.edu/uhh/vcaa/articulationagreement/UHMNursingDentalHygiene-UHHiloDNP.php
Please Note Page names are Case Sensitive. Lowercase url stubs are highly recommended.
