Most often you will use the standard page. The position in the page tree corresponds to the position in the frontend of your page. You can show or hide the standard page. If, on the other hand, the icon of a standard page appears pale or grayed out in the back end compared to other pages, this page is not listed in the menu of the front end, but the URL is publicly accessible. Pages visible in the menu can then link to such a page. This function can be useful to make the frontend more clearly arranged for the user of a website.

Backend User Section

The backend user section allows editors to create test pages. These pages are not visible in the frontend, only backend users can access them.

Once a test page is ready for publication, it can easily be converted to a standard page.


The shortcut page redirects the user to another internally located page. This can be used, for example, if you want to link from a main page directly to a subpage.

However, you can also link to any page you have created in the backend.

Mount Point

The mount point works similar to the link, you have the possibility to link pages and subpages. You use this type of page if you want to insert the same content and the same menu title at another position on your page without having to create the content twice.

At the entry point, a page therefore only exists once in the back end, but appears several times in the menu of the frontend.

Link to External URL

With this page type you can link an external page in your menu. This can be used, for example, to link a landing page or a partner page.

By clicking on the corresponding menu item, the user is directed to an external page.


Folders are often used as containers for special data sets, such as news or job offers. However, the folder can also be used to store normal content elements or pages.

Folders and their contents are not displayed in the frontend menu.


The recycler is similar to the recycle bin on your computer. The items in the trash are not deleted immediately. Should a page in the wastebasket be used again, it can be easily moved from the wastebasket back into the page tree.

The recycler and its contents are not displayed in the frontend.

Menu Separator

The menu separator is not visible in the frontend and only serves as a structuring aid in the backend.

For example, you can clearly separate the area visible in the frontend (menu options and subpages) from non-visible page types.


With news pages you can easily create blog posts directly in our website base. The posts automatically contain a timestamp of the last update. Articles can easily be assigned to authors. The content is managed in the same way as a standard page. This allows you to create news in a more flexible way than with standard blogs.


In the page type category you can create news as subpages, which then automatically belong to this category. If you have a blog on your site, you can easily organize many blog posts.
