  4. Enter a name for the page (Resume, Portfolio, Contact, etc).
  5. Click Done to confirm. A new page will be created.
When the first new page is created, a Navigation bar will appear at the top of the Header. See Google Sites: Adjusting Site Navigation for more details.

To change page settings, click the three-dot button. Use this menu to change the homepage, duplicate pages, rename pages, add a subpage (explained below), hide them from the navigation bar, and delete. Be aware that deleting a page is permanent. We recommend hiding pages instead of deleting them to prevent inadvertently losing work.


New pages are considered top-level pages. Subpages, which are lower-level pages that appear below main-level pages in the Navigation bar, can be added. Use subpages to organize related material. In the Pages tab, subpages organized below main-level pages under a drop- down menu. Visitors can access subpages with drop-down menus on the sites Navigation bar. In the image below, "Home" and "Page 1" are top-level pages, while "Page 2" is a subpage.
