Main Page > User manual > Administer > Manage static pages


ICA-AtoM ships with a default welcome message on the home page and an about page that provides additional information about the application and project. Both these static pages can be edited by administrators or editors to reflect their own institution's or network's requirements. There are two ways to access the edit page: from a link on the pages themselves or from the "Admin > Static pages" menu.


Edit from page view

Edit the home page by clicking Edit in the button block
  1. Go to the home page or the about page
  2. Click "Edit" in the button block. ICA-AtoM routes you to the edit page


Edit via admin menu

Clicking Admin > Static pages takes the user to the list page for static pages
  1. Click the "Admin > Static pages" menu
  2. ICA-AtoM routes you to the list page, showing all static pages in the application
  3. Click the page you want to edit (the home page or about page)
  4. Click "Edit" in the button block. ICA-AtoM routes you to the edit page.


Edit static page

Editing the home page
  1. Title: revise the page title if required (defaults are "Welcome" and "About")

  2. Permalink: this is a hard-coded page title referenced by ICA-AtoM code to manage URLs; it cannot be edited in the "Welcome" and "About" pages. However, it can be edited in any static pages that you add yourself.

  3. Content: revise the text that will appear on the page as required

    You must include HTML code for any links or special styling.

  4. Click the "Save" button; ICA-AtoM returns you to the page in view mode
