Learn how to add a Web Page to your auction

To add a Page:

  1. Go to CMS (Content Management System) in the top menu and then choose Pages from the dropdown list.
  2. In the upper right, click on the blue button that says Add New Page to start creating your page.
  3. You will be taken to a form to set up your page. First give it a Page Title. This is a name that you will need to recognize later, so be sure it labels your page properly in case you want to have multiple pages. It will also be used in the breadcrumbs (e.g. homepage/mypagename).

  7. Now the fun part–use the WYSIWYG editor to create the look of your page. Here you can add text and format it as desired, add images or other media, and even add scripts from third party services.
  8. Click on the green Save Page button in the upper right.
