A Subpage is a new page (or "child" page) that links from the current page (or "parent" page) above it in the page hierarchy. Subpages have the same options for adding content as the original parent page.

Give your subpage a title, then click Create.

Note: You can choose to modify the navigation (if you have more than one subpage) by selecting the check box beside Next page. This means that the subpage will replace the current one when users hit Next, rather than returning to the parent page. Also, if you would like your subpage to show as a button, select the check box next to Show as button rather than link.

Add Resources Folder
