Reusing Pages in LibGuides CMS v2: Basic Steps

Pages may be reused* from your own Guides, from other RILINK Schools LibGuides CMS Guides, or from the larger LibGuides community**

*RILINK Schools sites use Version 2 of the LibGuides CMS software. Any reused pages must also use Version 2. Version 1 pages will not be compatible.

When reusing pages (regardless of source), always ask permission first, and always provide source attribution on your own version of the page.

The steps to create or reuse sub-pages are the same as the steps to create or reuse pages, but instead of selecting a top level page position, select "a sub-page of" position of the main page beneath which you want the sub-page(s) to appear. The following additional information applies to sub-pages only.

A main page's sub-pages will automatically be listed on the main page as long as no other content is added to the main page

Users will then have two ways to navigate to the sub-pages: through the list of links on the main page, or by using the drop-down menu of sub-pages when hovering over the main page's tab. 

If any content of any kind is added to the main page, the list of sub-pages will disappear, and users will need to hover over the main page's tab to access the sub-pages. A separate box of links to sub-pages can be manually created on the main page if needed. 

Please note that when in edit mode the list of sub-pages on the main page will not be visible. To view the list of sub-pages as it will appear to users, preview the main page, making sure the main page is not in hidden draft mode and making sure the guide itself is in Private or Published mode.

Please see the screen shots below for examples.
