Pages

A Page is very similar to a Post, but with some important differences. A page is not part of the blog chronology, but is a static part of the blog. It is perfect for pages such as “About me” which is a single page that has nothing to do with the daily post writing, but a more permanent part of the website.

Creating/Editing a page

This looks very similar to creating a post, but there are no categories, tags, a date or author to fill out. The title must be unique to other pages, but not to posts. You can have a page and a post with the same title, but you cannot have two pages with same the same title.

The description and keywords are being used as meta-tags, which describes the content of the page. You can think of the keywords as tags, because they are used to describe the content of the page to search engines.

Deleting a page

You can find a Delete link at the bottom of every page if you are logged in. If you click it, you are asked to confirm the deletion before it gets deleted.

Finding pages

Pages are listed on top of the Pages admin tab. You can also use the Page List widget to list the pages on your blog.

I'm trying to create a page for non-profit donations. So far I've been unable to get either a PayPal submit button or a Goggle Checkout button to work. Can some one explain how this can be accomplished?

Proposed content for IsFirstPage and ShowInList...

Is front page
When you check this box on a BlogEngine.Net page, the normal content on the site's home page will be replaced with the content from that page. Normally the front page content is the blog post list. If you use a page for the front page's content instead, then you need to edit the menu object in your theme's master page, and add a link to the blog post list, or else your visitors won't be able to easily find the blog content. The link markup for the blog post list looks like this...

<a href="<%=Utils.RelativeWebRoot%>blog.aspx">Blog</a>

Show in List
If you de-select the Show In List checkbox, then the "Pages" control won't show this page in the list. Often used in conjunction with the Is Front Page setting since you don't need the page to be listed in the Pages control if it is the content of the home page.

Semicton,

When you logon as administrator to your BlogEngine site, there will be a dropdown-list of "widgets" at the bottom of the sidebar on the right. Select "Page List" from this list and click "Add". Now the list of static pages is included in the sidebar and accessible to your visitors.

Can someone explain how my visitors can discover my pages other than a direct link i create in a post? Thanks.

I am new to BlogEngine and played around with the different features. One thing that got me confused and a bit frustrated is the Pages area. It allows you to associate a Parent page. Got excited first because I was hoping that it will show a url tag of ..../parent1/child1/child1.1 and so on. Apparently the Parent page does not have much meaning at all because all it does is just to provide a relationship and that's all. Perhaps I just don't understand much what is the main use of the Parent Page.
