Site Basics Explained

main content

Your site is made up of a collection of pages, each of which is home to one or more content modules.  Grasping the relationship between pages and modules will be very helpful when developing your site content.

A page will usually host more than one module when:

  • the page holds more than one type of content (eg some text but also a form)
  • the page content is situated in more than one area of the page (eg the central area but also the right column)

In the image below, the blue area represents the page, and the red areas represent the modules on the page. Some hold text and some hold forms, and they occupy different areas on the page.
