Add a public discussion board page or subpage to a guide

What's a discussion board page?

If you'd like to build a discussion around your guide, you can add a public discussion board page (this is a CMS-only feature). Public guide discussion boards are the perfect place to discuss a particular subject, topic, or even a course or assignment.

Adding a new page

  1. While editing your guide, click on the gray Add New Page () tab.
    • If you have a tabbed navigation guide, this will be the very last tab.
    • If you have a side-navigation guide, this will be the tab at the bottom of the menu.
  2. Under the Create New Page tab, select "Discussion" from the the Page Type dropdown.
  3. In the Page Name field, enter a title for your page. This is what displays in your guide's navigation menu and page heading.
  4. You can give your page an optional Description.
  5. For the Position, select whether you want to add the page as a top-level page, or a sub-level page.
    • A top-level page appears as a tab or side-navigation menu item.
    • A sub-page is nested underneath a top-level page and will appear in a dropdown menu when hovering over that top-level page's tab.
  6. If you would like to hide this page from public view until its ready, select the Draft Mode checkbox.
    • While enabled, you can only view the page while editing the guide. It will not be visible on the public guide, or while previewing the guide.
    • Note: if your system has the Publishing Workflow (CMS-only) enabled, only a designated reviewer can take a hidden page out of draft mode.
  7. Click the Save button.
