Although you can place many different types of content on your website, all elements are identical. This makes operation much easier, as you only have to learn the basic functions such as create, move, etc. once.

Create contents

To present new content on your website, you have to create a so-called content element. Since each of these content elements represents a self-contained area and you can place the paragraphs one below the other like in a book - in a purchased version also in columns next to each other - the term paragraph or paragraph element is often used. Since the only reason for a paragraph or content element is to add content to your website, we also use the term content. I hope these many different terms for one and the same element don't confuse you. It occurs to me, one content or paragraph is one of many elements on your site. This term is also used more often.

 

How to bring a new paragraph, content, a new element or a content element (different names for the same thing) to the website, you can read under "Creating content".

Edit contents

 

After you have created a new content element on your page, you usually have to fill this element with content. There are a few exceptions. A line you create is immediately displayed. A counter with content is also displayed immediately. In these cases, we use settings that we have stored. Of course, you can customize such basic content.

 

Before you place new content on your website, you will consider which content, which content element is best suited for it. If you want to write text and are not yet sure whether you want to include an image in the text, you have it easy with page4. Our text element just allows you to create text. But you can also insert pictures at any time. If you are using a purchased version, you can even create tables with the text element. So you will probably use the text element the most. Thanks to the integrated text editor TinyMCE you have a lot of freedom. We have limited this editor in the free version a little bit. In the purchased version you have a lot more options at your disposal. You should use it sparingly.

 

If you want to place pictures, you have to know beforehand how many and what you want with them. With the picture element you can place only one picture at a time. If you have a purchased version, you can of course create columns and then insert several screen elements in the columns next to each other. In the free version there is only one column and when you insert an image you can only display it in this column alone. But that doesn't matter, the text element allows text and an image at the same time. If you want to present more pictures at the same time, you need a gallery. If you want to present videos from YouTube or other sources, use the content "Video". If you need a table, you can use either the content element table or as user of a purchase version also the text element. You see, before creating, you look at our content elements and choose a suitable element. A variety of different types are available and we are planning further elements.


How to edit a new paragraph, content, a new element or a content element (different names for the same thing) can be found under "Edit content".

Move contents

Use the pallet to quickly create content elements using drag and drop. Don't worry, you can always move or even copy paragraphs. It is no problem to move content elements, i.e. paragraphs, within your entire website. This goes from top to bottom on a page and if you have a purchase version and use columns from column to column or row to row. You can also move all content to the sidebar or from the sidebar to the page at any time. The clipboard is used to store and temporarily store content so that it can be placed on a page other than the current page. Of course, you can also copy and move content. Besides drag&drop we use a unique click system that can only page4. This allows you to move or copy elements or paragraphs with two clicks. It couldn't be easier.

Delete contents

There's not much to say. You erase something, it's gone. And irrevocably.

 

You can read more about this and what options you have with a "Worst Case" under "Delete contents".

Content options

As already mentioned, you have to imagine a content element like a closed system, a paragraph. Technically, all content is stored in a "div", a container. The advantage of this is that a container can have a frame, an internal distance, a background colour and we take advantage of this. When you open the toolbar, where you can find the tools for editing content, you will see a gear on the far right. This is the tool you can use to set individual options for each section. But be careful. You should know that there is a central location where these options are assigned overridingly. This ensures that all content has the same options. So the same distances, the same settings for the border and the background. There you can set how much space you want to give to the content and whether you want a line under each paragraph or whatever. Sometimes, however, something is not always suitable for all heels. Therefore, you can set each section individually. You turn off the parent settings and use your own. For example, individual sections can be spaced more upwards or downwards or equipped with a line. But you must know that at that moment the section no longer reacts to changes from outside. If you change the global settings, the section you modified will pretend not to care. You may then need to access all manually set content items individually and switch back to global options.
