Adding new pages to your website is an essential skill for Intermediate web publishers.

When you add a new page, it is important to have your content ready before you add it to OU Campus.

Focus on a few key areas when you begin to create your page:

  • Page Title / Description

  • File Name

  • Add to Navigation

When creating a new page, make sure your content has been approved by your department and remember your content is not only part of your department, but also part of a larger whole.
