What’s New Getting Started Building Integrating Publishing

Edit site pages and settings

Last Updated

This is the spot to learn about how to edit, create and rearrange the pages in your site and its primary navigation. You'll also learn how to edit page SEO settings and how to link to other landing pages you've built with Leadpages.


The fine print

  • Site pages are separate from standalone landing pages in your account navigation menu. However, if you would like to link to a landing page in your site header, here's how.
  • Leadpages Sites have a limit of 100 pages. For more pages, you may consider creating landing pages and linking to them from your site.

Access site pages

The site's Pages tab gives you the ability to rearrange pages in your site's navigation menu, add new pages, move pages to and from draft, and more.

To edit your site pages, select the Pages tab from the left-hand side of the builder.

Site homepage

Your site's homepage will have a home icon next to it in the Pages tab. Every site template will have a page selected as the homepage.

Set a homepage

  1. Click the gear icon next to the page you'd like to set as a homepage.
  2. Select Edit Page Settings.
  3. Under page settings, click the button that reads, Set [page name] as my homepage.
  4. Click Save.

NOTE: Site homepages will be available at your root domain as well as the URL slug you've set in the page settings.

Edit page settings

To edit page settings, click the gear icon next to the page you'd like to edit, then "Edit Page Settings."

Name and URL

The "Page Name" will be displayed in your site's primary navigation.

The page slug you set for the page URL can either be the same as the "Page Name" or something different. The page URL cannot be the same as another page on your site.

Move a page to draft

Check the box next to "Mark as Draft Page" to move a page to draft and take it offline. This will make the page inaccessible to visitors.

NOTE: Marking a page as a draft will make the page inaccessible to visitors. Any links to this page will redirect to your site's 404 Error Page.

Hide page from navigation

In comparison to moving a page to draft, checking the box next to "Hide Page from Navigation" will allow you to keep the page public and available at its URL, but not a part of your site's primary navigation in its header.

Page SEO

You can set your page SEO title, keywords, and description of any site page by clicking on the gear icon next to the page title on the Pages tab on the left-hand side of the builder, then "Edit Page Settings" and select the SEO tab.

NOTE: If the SEO settings are not set at the page level, the page will adopt the site-wide SEO settings.

Search engine optimization (SEO) is a complex topic, so we won’t cover all the details here. The good news is that a lot of best practices are built into Leadpages already—such as mobile responsiveness and structured HTML.

For additional tips, check out Google’s Webmaster Guidelines. While you may not be able to implement every single best practice, their guide provides handy advice for optimizing your pages.

If you’re unsure what to put in your page’s SEO fields, review this article from Google: Create good titles and snippets in Search Results ↗

Some Leadpages users want to make sure they have an SEO H tag on their page. You can make sure of this by using the headline text types within the text widget, as each size setting within the text widget corresponds with an H tag like so:

  • Headline 1 = <h1>
  • Headline 2 = <h2>
  • Headline 3 = <h3>

Social preview

To edit the preview of your site pages when sharing them to social media, navigate to the Pages tab on the left-hand side of the builder, then the gear icon next to the page you'd like to edit. Click "Edit Page Settings" and select the Social tab.

Editing the social preview of your site pages will override the social preview set up inside of your site's settings.

You can edit your page's title, description and preview image for each page of your site.

After you've saved those changes and updated your page, make sure to debug that page URL using Facebook's Debugger tool. More on that here 

Duplicate a site page

To duplicate a site page, click the gear icon next to the page you'd like to duplicate, then click Duplicate.


Delete a site page

To delete a site page, click the gear icon next to the page you'd like to delete, then click Delete.

Add a new site page

To add a new page to your site:

  1. Click the + icon next to "Primary Navigation" on the Site Pages panel.
  2. Select Page.
  3. Choose a templated page type as well as a page name.
  4. Set a page slug to complete the URL where that page will be found on your site or use the "Mark as Draft Page" checkbox if you're not quite ready to go public with the page.
  5. Click Save.

Page types

Page types are simply a templated way to get you started on your site page. You can completely customize your page after selecting a page type and nothing about the name of the page type needs to indicate the final goal for the page.

Arrange pages in primary navigation

To rearrange the position of your pages in your site's primary navigation, click and drag the page in the listing to move it.

Add a link to primary navigation

To add a link to your site's primary navigation:

  1. Click the + icon next to "Primary Navigation" on the Site Pages panel.
  2. Select Link.
  3. Choose one of the link options below to fit what you want the link to accomplish.

Add a page section link

If you'd like the link you're adding to your primary navigation to bring visitors to a page section on an existing site page, choose "Page Section," name it, and choose which page and section you'd like to link.

Add an external URL link

If you'd like the link you're adding to your primary navigation to bring visitors to an external URL, choose "External URL," name it, and enter the URL.

Add a landing page link

Choose the "Landing Page" option to add a link to a landing page in your primary navigation.

Link pages, either to a page section, external URL, or landing page will have a link icon next to their name in the "Site Pages" listing. And if that link is directed to an existing page section, all pages will be highlighted together in the "Site Pages" listing, as any edits are universal to that single page.


Create a sub-navigation (drop-down) menu


To create a sub-navigation menu, simply drag your chosen sub-page over the top of another page in the Pages listing to create a drop-down menu in your primary navigation.

To remove a page from a sub-navigation menu, drag the page to the left of the page listing and you'll see the drop-down disappear.

Hide a page in the primary navigation

If you have a page you don't want linked in the primary navigation on the header of your site, you can choose to hide that page, but it will remain public.

To hide a page from primary navigation, simply click and drag the page into the "Hidden from Navigation" section in the Site Pages panel.

To un-hide a page, simply drag the page out of the "Hidden from Navigation" section into the "Primary Navigation" section where you would like it to appear in your site's header.

Add a hidden site page

To create a new hidden page, click the + icon and follow the steps similar to those shown above to either add a hidden page or link to your site.

404 error page

A 404 error page is included on every site to make sure that if a visitor mistypes a URL on your site or visits the URL of a page that's been deleted, they'll be taken to a customized error page. This page will give visitors the ability to re-engage with your header navigation and can be customized just like any other site page.

NOTE: When your site is published, the site 404 error page will take the place of a landing page set as a 404 under that domain in your account settings.

To customize your 404 error page, navigate to the Pages tab in the builder. Your 404 error page is listed under "Other Pages."


Customize your page content

The Leadpages Drag & Drop Builder allows for loads of customization to get your site looking exactly how you'd like it, representing your brand and business with a look to convert.
