Building a portfolio - Create a page

Create a page

A page is used to present your work to a specific audience. It's a good idea to have already decided on what will be showcased; text, images, video etc. Follow the steps below to create an empty page.

Before creating a page you may want to consider creating some content in the content tab so you have something to add to the page. 

When adding content from the "Content" section such as a journal, as you add new posts to the journal this will automatically update the journal that is displayed on your page.

  4. Give page a description (optional)
  5. Choose a display name (optional)

You should now have a saved, empty page. Do this a few more times if you want to create a collection; the guide to creating a Collection is on the next tab.

Create a Collection

A collection is a group of pages. This page you're reading is part of a collection and has been grouped with other pages that can be accessed via the dropdown menu at the top of the page.   You can add a navigation block to each page that will give you a menu similar to what you find on other websites.

Collections are great for pulling together work covering a variety of topics. This makes them perfect for assessments where you can use one page per topic that you're addressing. Watch the video to see more.
