Google Sites: Adding Pages

When you first create your google site it only has a homepage and site map. To add pages:

  1. Click on the “add page” symbol in the right hand corner or the page
  2. In the new window, add a name for the page (a URL is automatically created for the new page, which you can change later. You can change the URL later by clicking on setting (Gear Flower) in the top right hand corner of the page and selecting Page Settings.  
  3. Choose a page template. The different types of pages available are:
    • Web page: the simplest kind of page; you can write content, embed gadgets, and arrange it to fit your needs. It has standard formatting controls ( bold, italic, bullets, etc.) and you  can attach documents from your hard drive to the bottom of the page. Site collaborators can comment on your pages and if you choose edit them as well.  Google Sites periodically saves versions of your page as you make edits, so it’s easy to go back to earlier versions of the page to make comparisons or undo changes.
    • Announcements: similar to a blog, announcement pages display posts you make to the page in chronological order, starting with the most recent.
    • File cabinet: these pages let you store and organize files from your computer’s hard drive, making it easier to share files with other users of your site. Anyone subscribed to the page will be notified when files are added, changed, or removed.
    • List page: these pages let you make and organize lists of information. Items on  list pages are easy to add, edit & remove and viewers of the list can sort it by any column. Anyone subscribed to the page  are notified when items are added, changed, or removed.

4. Choose your page’s location within the site by nesting it under an existing page or keeping it at the top level. You can move pages later by clicking on setting (Gear Flower) in the top right hand corner of the page and selecting Page Settings.  

5. Click on Create
Now you’re ready to edit the your pages
