Pages List View

The Pages List View provides access to functionality related to creating new content, uploading, and editing content. It provides a view of the pages, files, and directories that make up the site, and the additional functionality that is available for each file and directory. You can get to this area from the Pages link in the global navigation bar under the Content menu.

The folders in this view are organized by site with the folder name being the site url following http://www.mtu.edu/, e.g. mtu.edu/umc/. Within each site folder the content is organized following the rest of the URL, e.g. mtu.edu/umc/services/digital/. Additional folders may be created to help with organization such as images and documents folders.
