How to Add New Pages

Create a New Page in MarketGrabber Software

MarketGrabber software comes with a template to create additional pages to the software.  Knowledge of creating an FTP connection to the website server is required. 

Creating a new page

  1. FTP into the site server. (server access information is located in your Account Setup Email)
  2. Navigate to the root directory (www).  To locate the copy of the template file click on the directory of the edition that you have installed (Classified, Directory, Employment, Vehicle, RealEstate or Events).  Locate the file named Template.aspx.
    Note: if you have multiple editions installed you will only need to access this file from one edition to use for the whole website.
  3. Select the file and download a copy of this file to your computer.
  4. Make a copy of Template.aspx.  Rename the copy of this file.  Try to use a useful and brief page name relating to the content that you will be placing on the new page for example Information.aspx.
  5. Once your page is created with the new name you will need to upload it back to the server in the edition directory that you downloaded it from.
  6. To add content to this page from your backoffice you will need to create this page under Page Content.  Login to your backoffice.  Click on Common – Page Content – click the Add New Record button.  Select the edition you have installed or full website if you wish this page to be used in all editions that you have installed.  Enter the Page File Name i.e. Information.aspx.  Enter an H1 Title (this will be the page heading).  Enter the content for the page in the Page Top Content or Page Bottom Content sections of the HTML editor.  When finished click the Add Record button. 
  7. Once you have your page created with the content you will need to create a link to this page.  To add a link to this page from your site home page login to your backoffice.  Click on (edition) – Home Page Text.  In either the Registered User Content or Unknown User Content HTML editor add the text for your link i.e. “information” and select it so that it is highlighted.  Click the “Insert/Edit URL Link” button in the HTML editor. 

A small box will open.  Enter the page name, i.e. Information.aspx into the box labeled URL. Click OK to save the link. Click Update Record to update this page with the new link. 

You can also create a link from an existing page of the site located in your backoffice under Common - Page Content.  Select the page to open that you wish to add this link to.  In either the Top Page Content or Bottom Page Content HTML editor add the text for your link i.e. “information” and select it so that it is highlighted.  Click the “Insert/Edit URL Link” button in the HTML editor. 

A small box will open.  Enter the page name, i.e. Information.aspx into the box labeled URL. Click OK to save the link.  Click Update Record to update this page with the new link.

If you need to place the link to this new page in the top navigation or footer navigation then you will need to access the Master Pages of each edition that you have installed.  Knowledge of ASP.NET will be required to do this.
