Adding an entry point to a content page or extension

Adding an entry point to a content page or extension (How do I make my new content pages accessible to the public?)

The whole netAdventist software is built around content pages or webpages within your site. So as an example you have a page in the dashboard where a site administrator or publisher would add and create News. However this is not the entry point to the News page that viewers would see. This is the back end. The front end or homepage is where viewers will see the News. You will need to create that entry point either as a menu item or a link on a content page using the link chooser. Both will take your viewers to your News page. The same goes for extensions. For example, Prayer Requests has a default page that is turned on when the extension is turned on, but you will have to create a entry point to get to the Prayer Request page. This holds true for all content types: announcements, news, forms and podcasts. They will all have their own content page by default with the exception of content pages. Content pages must be built by a webmaster or publisher. The homepage is the exception to the rule. The homepage is built when your site is created. However it is blank and must have content added to it.

Here's an example you can try. This can be done with any extension or new content page.
  • Turn on the prayer request extension by going to the dashboard then Settings, then Extensions. Find the extension called Prayer Requests. Activate it. 
  • While still in the dashboard go back to the Site Content tab and add a Main Menu item or in Home or Content Pages use the Link Chooser to add a link through the editor. 
  • Then select View Site and select that menu option for prayer requests or go to the page and select the link.
