Reorder Pages

Describes how to reorder pages in your website. [2:53]

Two options for completing this exercise...
  1. Request a Self-Paced account on the Training Server. Then just follow the instructions as is.
  2. If you already have access to the main Author Server, adapt the instructions to fit your own site.


The pages in your UBCMS website have a meaningful order. The order of your pages is also reflected in your website navigation, and how they are shown in lists and carousels. Each new page is added to the bottom of that part of the site, and is correspondingly displayed at the end of your navigation, or any lists or carousels. But you may prefer your pages to be displayed in a different order, which can be done very easily by reordering them within that part of your site.


1. Log into the UBCMS.

2. Open the Sites Console and navigate to your site; e.g. Sites + Self-Paced Training + {your site}.

3. Select the page titled 'UB Buildings'.

4. Observe the order of its child pages in the page list: Abbott Hall, Harriman Hall, Hayes Hall, Wende Hall and finally Alumni Arena.

5. Now open the UB Buildings page: select the page then click Edit in the Command Menu that appears.

6. On the UB Buildings page, observe how the order of its child pages in the navigation is also Abbott Hall, Harriman Hall, Hayes Hall, Wende Hall and finally Alumni Arena. They're not in alphabetical order, so let's fix that.

7. Return to the Sites Console (if it is not open in a browser tab, click the Equalizer button in the top left, then click View in Admin). Make sure the file list still shows the UB buildings.

8. Notice the domino icon at the far right of each page in the console (like two vertical rows of dots).

9. Click that icon, and then drag and drop the page to your preferred location in the folder. The page will move ABOVE that spot.

10. Open any of your website's pages and observe how UB Building's child pages are now in your new order: Abbott Hall, Alumni Arena, Harriman Hall, Hayes Hall and Wende Hall.

Note: If the page has previously been published, it must be reactivated before this new position is displayed in the published website.
