  4. Enter a name for the page (Resume, Portfolio, Contact, etc).
  5. Click “Done” to confirm. A new page will be created.


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 site’s Navigation bar. In the image below, "Home" and "Page 1" are top-level pages, while "Page 2" is a subpage.
