Page layouts and content types

EdWeb has a variety of page types designed for specific purposes. It's important that you are using the appropriate page for your content.

A website is primarily constructed with a single homepage, overview pages and generic content pages. Other page and content types are available for more specialised purposes.

Subsite homepage

A homepage is the entry point to a website and it should clearly summarise its primary purpose and content.


An overview page aids navigation and acts as the signpost page for a group of generic content pages.

Generic content

Generic content pages are adaptable and can be used for a range of content including text, images and video.


An event page summarises and collates a variety of information that can be used to promote an event.
