editSuite Help - How do I use the Pages module?

You can use this module to update the content of your website's informational pages and key images. This module is found in the "EDIT CONTENT" tab from your editSuite. 

UPDATE PAGE CONTENT 

To update a page, you can choose from one or more page types that are available and use the tools provided to modify the content. 

LiveBooks information pages come with 4 page types to choose from: 

Designed page is a page that liveBooks either created for you or uploaded on your behalf. These pages are NOT editable via the editSuite. If you want to have a designed page updated or converted to an editable page, then please contact liveBooks support (a fee may apply). 

Designed page – editable is a page that liveBooks has created for you and programmed to be compatible with the editSuite so that it can be edited via the editSuite. 

An Uploaded page is a page or image that you upload through the editSuite using this module. 

An External Link turns the page's navigation menu item into a link to an outside website. 

*PLEASE NOTE: Depending on the page and the details of your site, you may not have all of these options available.
