Contributors > Design Pages

As the follow-up step to creating your page and entering the standard properties, you are now ready to design your page and enter the custom properties.



When creating a new page the custom properties tab appears after you complete the standard properties. Otherwise, you can revise it later by accessing  it in the edit page view:

  1. Click on "Properties" in the menu at the top of the page (first item, on the far left)
  2. Select 'Custom'
  3. Revise 'HeaderLayout' and/or 'PageLayout'

Header Layout
