Pages Module

The Pages module is where all of the pages on your website are listed. This is where you can edit, delete or rename pages on your website. Caution: Once a page and its contents are deleted, there is no option to retrieve it. So make sure you really want it deleted before you select the delete option! Also, the error.lasso page is the main link to your website. Be very careful not to delete this page as it will leave your website without a homepage.

If at any time you would like to remove a page from your website:

  1. In the Main Admin section, select Pages.
