We can modular drag and drop pages of your website, "dynamic pages." These are completely customizable and have a ton of interesting features to help you best manage your website. 


Spark location: Site Map dashboard and dropdown


That's right, you can create a new page by click on the Pages icon in the header of Spark. Once the page loads, navigate to the section you want to add a new page under and click the grey "+ ADD NEW PAGE" button. You can also hover over the Pages icon, hover over the navigation section you want to add a new page to and click "+ ADD NEW PAGE" at the bottom of the drop down.


You will first be required to give the page a title, this will be visible at the top of the page and will be searchable on your website.


Before you click Save, consider some of these additional options in page status.

By default, the unlisted box will be checked. We leave this box checked by default as you might want to finish building the page before you List it. When you're ready, just uncheck that box and click save. (Unlisted Page means that this page is not visible in the navigation. If the page title is blue but has an Unlisted icon next to it, that means it is active and you can share the URL of that page (via email or social media), but it can't be found in the navigation. When you create a new page, it's automatically marked as Unlisted so that it isn't visible on your website until you're ready to list it. This makes it easy for you to preview the page as you build it to ensure it looks 'just right' before you publish it. Another reason you might use this feature is to share a page with an internal group like staff, board, or vendors. Or, you might use an unlisted page as a landing page for a special offer that requires limited access.)



Open in a new window is generally used for pages with forms on them. Essentially, as a user navigates your website, when they find this page in the dropdown of the navigation and select the page, their browser will open a new window to view the page in.


Member Only will be a service only enabled for our clients that have a Member Site enabled. If you have a member site and don't want this page to be accessible to the public unless the user is a member and logs in, check this box! 


There are three tabs that help build out a dynamic page: Content | Location | Page Info

The Location tab will allow you to pick the ending of the URL of this specific page. Just keep in mind that the page will be "nested" so the URL will look something like this: http://mywebsite.com/navigationheading/location-name

The Page Info tab provides browsers and search engines the means to display your page!


Page Title should normally be a repeat of the Page Title from the content tab. However, consider this title goes in the tab of your browser so if you give the page a long name, it might not be completely visible by your visitors. 

Search Engine Keywords we have learned from Google that these are much less important than the keywords you use throughout the page. Don't spend too much time here, just enter a few phrases, separated by a comma.

Search Engine Description will be the short paragraph description in your Google and search results. 


None of these steps are absolutely necessary to create a new page though, these are items you can come back and perfect once you've gotten started on the build out of the page. Once you click SAVE all of the modules available for dynamic pages appear in blue down the left side of the page of the Content tab

To add a new module to the page, click down on the module, drag it over to the grey section of the page that reads "DROP NEW MODULE HERE" and release your mouse! The module will open and you can start adding content. 

To minimize a module that has been opened click this icon in the top right of the module:

To delete a module whether it's open or closed, click this icon in the top right of the module:

If a module has this icon in the top right, it means no content has been added to it yet:

To open or expand a module that is currently closed, click this icon on the far right side:

Once you have multiple modules on a page, you'll be able to reorder them by grabbing (clicking down) the cross hairs on the left of the module:

Moving the entire module to it's new location and releasing the mouse when the area you want to move the module to has a shadow.
