Page Types

Last Edited 9/30/2020
Understanding page types is an important concept in building and maintaining your council website. If you use a Standard Page instead of an Event Registration Module page for your summer camp, then registration buttons, calendar links, and event contacts will not be automatically updated.

All 6 page types have access to the same features (Photo Galleries, Content Editor, Social Media accounts, Contacts, Resources, Maps, Forms, Sidebar Content, SEO Controls) to build a beautiful and consistent design. The homepage is unique, and many of its features are controlled under General Website Settings. Once saved, a page's type cannot be changed.

"Select Page Type" pop-up that appears when creating a new page, listing the six Page Types

Standard Page

A Standard Page is the most common page type. This is meant for content that does not need to be added to the calendar, featured on the homepage, or associated with a specific district, facility, or event.

Calendar Event

The Calendar Event page type is used for events that appear on the calendar but are not part of the Tentaroo Events Module. This includes holidays, round-tables, fundraising dinners, etc. Use this page type with form registrations. Calendar Events are automatically added to the website calendar and can be featured on the homepage.

Event Location - Select a location from within the Tentaroo system or create a new one. You can also edit the location, which will apply changes everywhere that location is used.

Event Category - This determines which calendar the event will be added to.

Start and End Time - Enter a start and end time to be displayed for end users or toggle "All Day Event" to omit.

IMPORTANT - Editing a location from within the CMS will apply those changes across your Tentaroo system. If you wish to change locations for a single event, change the selected location at the event type rather than editing the assigned location.

District

District Pages are similar to Standard Pages, but can be edited by admins with district-level permissions. District Pages also display the district's calendar below the main content, similar to the general calendar on the homepage. The particular district is assigned when a page is created and cannot be changed afterwards.

Blog Article

Blog Articles are similar to Standard Pages, but can be featured on the homepage.

Publish and Expiration Dates - These dates control when a Blog Article is featured. The page will still be available outside of this date range, but will not be promoted. The expiration date is optional.

Event Registration Module

Event Registration Module pages are associated and integrated with individual Event Types from the Tentaroo Events Module. Images placed in the galleries of an Event's webpage will also be used with the registration system, and many features of an Event Type can be set to automatically update on the associated page. Like Blog Articles, Event Registration Module pages can be featured on the homepage.

Event Type - Each Event Registration Module page is assigned to a particular Event Type. This assignment can be changed at any time.

Primary Event Page - Multiple pages can be assigned to the same Event Type, but only one can be selected as the primary page for that Event Type. Events in the website calendar will link to the primary event page.

Registration Buttons - If enabled, a list of upcoming events (for the specified Event Type) will automatically appear on the webpage, along with dates. While registration for an event is open, a button linking to that registration will also appear. For example, a page created for summer camp will automatically populate with weeks of summer camp as they are added to the Tentaroo registration system.

Show Primary Contact From Event - Pulls the primary event contact for display on the page. Updates made to a contact in the registration system will automatically reflect on the page. This contact will appear in the sidebar if this is the only contact shown on the page. Best practice for displaying additional contacts is to use the Sidebar Layout for all assigned contacts.

Facility Reservation Module

Facility Reservation Module pages are associated with a location, such as a Scout reservation. This type of page is used to promote facility reservations and can be featured on the homepage. They automatically include a button link to the Facility Module.

Facility Location - Select a location with active facilities to associate with the page. All locations are shown, with locations with active facilities sorted to the top. You can also edit or create new locations from this box. Note that editing a location here will apply those changes across your Tentaroo system.

Show Primary Contact From Facility Location - Pulls the primary event contact for display on the page. Updates made to a contact in the reservation system will automatically reflect on the page. This contact will appear in the sidebar if this is the only contact shown on the page. Best practice for displaying additional contacts is to use the Sidebar Layout for all assigned contacts.
