How to Manage Subpages

Organizing the placement of Subpages

Subpages can be managed from the Manage Pages section as detailed earlier. You can move a Subpage by dragging and dropping it where you want (hover over a Subpage until you see the six dotted symbol).

You can either change the order in which the Subpages appear in a Page Group’s navigation or the Page to which a Subpage belongs. The latter can be accomplished by dragging and dropping a Subpage into a Page.

You can also turn Subpages into Pages by placing them above a Page. 

By clicking on the three dots next to a Subpage, you can open the Subpage (select Open Page) or create another Subpage for the Subpage by clicking on Add Subpage

Archiving Subpages

Happeo does not delete Subpages. Instead, we archive them in case you wish to retrieve them.

If you want to archive a Subpage:

  1. Navigate to a Page Group
  2. Click the edit symbol at the top-right corner when viewing a Page
  3. Select Manage Pages from the Page Settings Menu at the bottom
  4. Click on the three dots next to a Subpage you wish to archive
  5. Select Archive Page

Setting as a home page

You can also change the Page Group home page by clicking the three dots next to a Subpage and selecting Set as home page.

How to move Subpages within a Page Group

To move a Subpage within a Page Group, you can:

  1. Navigate to the Page Group in which the Subpage you want to move resides
  2. Click on Edit Page at the top right corner
  3. Select Manage Pages at the bottom of the Page Settings Menu
  4. Hover over the Subpage you wish to move
  5. Drag the Subpage from the six dots that appear
  6. And drop the Subpage wherever you want to move it
    1. Move a Subpage in between a Page to create a Page
    2. Move a Subpage in between Subpages to change its order of visibility
    3. Move the Subpage into a Page to change its initial location
    4. Move a Subpage into a Subpage to change its initial location

When will the Page or Subpage URL change?

Let's say you have a Page called "Support" within a Page Group. When you move "Support" to another Page, "Support" will become a Subpage, and therefore will have a different URL.

If you move the Subpage "Support" to another Subpage, the URL will remain the same as what it changed into, because it remains a Subpage.

Basically, when you move a Page, the URL will only change if the Page becomes a Subpage and vice versa.

If you copy a Page or Subpage to a different Page Group, the URL will change.

And of course, if you change the Page or Subpage name, the URL will also change, reflecting the name change.

How to copy Subpages

Copying a Subpage from a Page group into a different Page or Page group is handy when you wish to duplicate Subpages or use a Subpage as a starting point for a new Page. 

  • When you copy a Subpage into another Page within a different Page Group, that copied Subpage becomes a Subpage
  • If you copy a Subpage into another Page group, that Subpage will become an individual Page within the selected Page Group
  • Coping a Subpage into the same Page group in which it resides will create a new Page
  • Lastly, copying a Subpage into a Page within the same Page Group in which it resides will create a new Subpage

Additionally, you must be either a Page Group Owner, Editor, or Platform Administrator to copy a Subpage from a Page Group. Moreover, you must be an Editor of the Page Group / Page you wish to copy the Subpage into.

  2. Click on Edit Page at the top right corner

  5. Click on Copy Page to

  7. Click on Save
    1. This will bring you to the copied Subpage and the location you chose 
    2. Please refresh your window to view the new changes

Rules for Subpage layering

As a rule of thumb, Subpage layering is generally not recommended, as it introduces the act of digging as a means to find information and therefore information chaos and loss in productivity. 

When considering Subpage layering, please also consider if that Subpage could be turned into a Page or a completely new Page Group instead (basically change the granularity). 

You can find a webinar on Page Group structuring here. This webinar covers some considerations to make when creating and scoping your Page Group.
