Types of Pages
A parent page is typically broad. It can cover a vast majority of topics. For instance, Politics could be a parent page. Anyone who visits your site to learn about politics can choose that page. Above in the Attributes box you can see that a parent page is referred to as a Main Page. There can be multiple main pages within a site.
Child pages tend to be more specific. Once someone has chosen to visit the Politics page, you may choose to provide them with more options, like The Kennedy Family. To make a page a child page, you must first select who you wish the parent to be. To do that, select the list that reads (no parent). Once you choose that button, a list of all of your pages will appear. Select the page you would like to choose as a parent.
**Note: You can choose any page to be a parent page, even if that page has a parent. Think of pages as you would a family: a parent can have a child, who can then have their own child, then that child can have a child, and this can go on forever.**
To establish pages within a site in a certain order, they must be numbered. It is recommended that this numbering is done in increments of 10, that way if you need to add new pages in between current pages, you have the ability to do that without changing the order of every existing page. Main or Parent Pages should be numbered as such: 10, 20, 30… Page 10 will come before 20 and so on. Child pages must also be numbered in the same order.
