I need to put a "next page" link on my site. 1. Do I add a page first and then make a link to it? Or do I make a link first then add the page? 2. If I make the page first, how do I identify the link to that page? 3. If I make a link first, what would I tell it to link to? And how would I identify the page I want it to go to?

Hello T.

It sounds like you want to create subpages! Here are the steps to do so:

1. Create the pages you need. When you create the page untick the "show in navigation" box so that these pages won't be automatically added into your main navigation menu.

2. Now that you have your content, you need to link it all up. You can create the links using the text editor widget.
* drag a text widget onto your page and click to edit it.
* Type the text which you want to be the link to the sub-page.
* Highlight the text, and from the text editor tool bar, click the link button (10th from the left next to the image button).
* Click on the "..." button next to "page". It should give you a list of all the pages you have just created.
* Choose the relevant page and click "OK" and you will have a link to this page.

If you didn't untick the "show in navigation" box and would like to take them out of the navigation, simply click on "Edit Navigation" and drag-and-drop the pages you don't want in the navigation into the panel on the right hand side. Do the opposite to include them in the navigation again.

For detailed instructions and a working example, please click on the following link: Creating Subpages.

Please let me know if you have any trouble with this.

Hi T
I had the same problem, in my site I have 5 pages all with links from the navigation bar. One of those pages (Catalogue) needed 34 links to sub pages not in the nav bar, I also wanted the 34 links to go on each sub page.
What I did was make 34 sub pages all blank, then I made 34 text links on the 'Catalogue' page and then copied and pasted these links onto each sub page, this allows the user to go from sub page to sub page without going back to the 'Catalogue' page. You can see the work in progress at each sub page is waiting for content but you should get the idea.
