When a page has been created using the Redirect Template, and a
child page is added, the content on the child page cannot be
The content on most UBCMS pages and their children can be
modified through adding and editing components. The Redirect Page
is an exception, since it is normally intended just to pass users
transparently on to another target page. This exception also
applies to children of a Redirect Page even if they are built from
one of the more standard templates.
The Redirect Page template uses the same design settings as the
site's Shared Content template. Normally child pages inherit this
setting from the site’s home page, but a redirect page's
children inherit the shared content setting instead. This setting
is not compatible with standard Web pages and will not permit the
addition of any components.
Most authors will not encounter this limitation since users
cannot navigate to those child pages through the natural
connections in the UBCMS (a direct link is required to get around
the redirect). But occasionally it may be useful to add a child to
a redirect page; for example, the redirect could send users to a
form on an external website. Once they complete the form, the users
could be sent back to the child as a 'thank you' page. This would
maintain consistent navigation and their location within the UBCMS
This is considered 'normal behavior' of the UBCMS and there are
no plans to change it.
One workaround is to use the Redirect template, build a child
page, and then edit the child page's Page
Properties. Set the Design field in the Advanced tab to the
same value as the site’s home page (e.g. /etc/designs/mgt for
the /content/mgt website).
Alternately, instead of using a page built using the Redirect
template, use a page built using the Standard template and set a
redirect in the Advanced tab of the Page
