As defined by Hannon Hill, pages are one of the core asset types in the Cascade CMS. Pages represent the grouping of template, content, blocks, and more that a user publishes to the web. Essentially, your ‘page’ becomes a new web page.

To add a page:

  • Login to Cascade
  • Choose either the Ag or Extension site and sub-folder you want to create a page within.
  • Choose a sub-folder you want to create a page within (you must have write access to this folder).
  • Click Add Content > Default > select a pre-configured sub-page Asset Factory
Any of the Add Content Asset Factory page choices would add a page template to your site that you can then adjust as needed. For example, use the 'Media' Asset Factory to start with a page that has some pre-selected media blocks you can edit, move, or delete. Click each link below to view an Asset Factory example:

You can now make page drafts, submit a draft, and then publish the page to make it appear on the live site.



Q: Why create a page?
A:  A page can be used to display static information content consumers want. A page can also display videos, images, news, and events when specific blocks are added to any page.

Q: How do I create a sub-site?
A: Choose Add Content and a new folder, and name the folder what you want the site name to be. For example, then add the site's first page. Don't forget to name all files (pages, folders, images, etc.) with lowercase characters such as index for index.html landing pages.

Q: Why is my new site not loading?
A: Could be the site folder does not have a page named index. An index.html named landing page is required for a Cascade site to index and work. Only one index.html landing page is possible per folder.

Q: How long does it take for a published page to show up on the live site?
A: ITAP publishes our Cascade sites on a top-of-the-hour and every 15 minutes after. For example, Cascade published at 9 am and then again at 9:15, 9:30, and 9:45. Additionally, all user-submitted Cascade assets and sites are forced to publish every morning between midnight and 6 am.
