Open New Window

The 'Open New Window' tickbox is used to set the target window when this page is opened from your website navigation.  For example if the tickbox is enabled, the page will open in a new browser window.  If the tickbox is disabled, the page will open in the same browser window.

Secure Page

Check this option to make the page secure using SSL.

 

Two possible uses for SSL are: 1) when obtaining credit card details and 2) securing your client login area. To use SSL you must first have a certificate on your site. Please see your web development company for more information.

 

Adding SSL encryption to a page:

If a page's content is deemed confidential or in some way proprietary, Contegro allows for an added degree of security.  Before being able to make use of the "Secure Site" function a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) security certificate is required on the server. SSL provides authentication between client and server applications by the use of encryption technology. It is designed to prevent eavesdropping, tampering, and message forgery.

 

The following notes on SSL are taken from the Internet.
"It's easy to tell when a server is using SSL security because the address in the URL window of your browser will start with https. The "s" indicates a secure connection. When your browser connects to an SSL server, it automatically asks the server for a digital Certificate of Authority (CA). This digital certificate positively authenticates the server's identity to ensure you will not be sending sensitive data to a hacker or imposter site. The browser also makes sure the domain name matches the name on the CA, and that the CA has been generated by a trusted authority and bears a valid digital signature. If all goes well you will not even be aware this handshake has taken place."

(Meta) Title

The Meta Title is used: 1) to help search engine spiders fully understand what the page is about, 2) as a title at the top of the browser window and 3) as the linked text when potential customers review results from a search.

 

By default, this field is auto-populated with the text entered in the Page Label field (note: any spaces and symbols entered in the Page Label field are replaced by a hyphen).

 

Use this field to provide page specific information to site visitors and search engines.  Ensure that you incorporate highly searched terms and, most importantly, write a unique meta title for each page.

 

Using content relevant keywords and phrases in the title tag can help your site rank well in the search engine result page (SERP) when someone searches those keywords.

 

Tip: Think about the words users would use  to find your pages. Use online keyword tools to help you find relevant highly searched terms. Read more about Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).  

(Meta) Description

The Meta Description often appears as the summary or description when your webpage is displayed in the search engine result page (SERP).  The meta description does not necessarily help your page to rank well in search engines, but it can help your page click through rate.

 

By default, this field is auto-populated with the text entered in the Page Label field (note: any spaces and symbols entered in the Page Label field are replaced by a hyphen).   Edit field as required, ensuring that each page has a unique meta description. Include page specific keywords and phrases that add to the meta title as well as providing users with a summary of what they will find on the page.

 

Note: If a search engine does not consider your meta description as descriptive, it may use one or more sections of the body copy (or page content containing relevant keywords and phrases) to generate a description (or snippet).

Meta Keywords

Enter comma delimited keywords and/or phrases that relate to the highly searched terms incorporated in your meta title,
meta description and page content.  Avoid repeating keywords or phrases repeatedly as this may affect your page ranking.

 

Key Info: If the 'Keyword Meta Tag' tickbox in the Site Settings is disabled, the 'Meta Keywords' field will be no longer available in this panel.

Robot Follow Links

Use this field to allow/disallow search engines from following internal and external links placed in the body copy (or content) in this webpage.  If the tickbox is enabled, search engines will follow links in the page content.

 

Tip: Using this option can add weight to the page ranking of external links.  Be sure to link to external trusted sites only.  If your page contains a link to a 
non-trusted site, disable this tickbox as you may be penalised for doing so.

Robot Index Page

Use this field to allow/disallow search engines indexing this webpage.  If the tickbox is enabled, the search engine spiders (or crawlers) will collect the data on this page for use in the search engine index.

 

Tip: The search engine index provides the results for search queries. Pages that are stored within the search engine index appear on the search engine results page (SERP).

Capture Page Hits

The purpose of this field is to tally the number of visitors to the page. The page hits tally is linked to the popularity setting within the category list module and the Publishing tab in the Attributes panel.

 

Enable tickbox to capture page hits.  Disable tickbox to stop counting page hits.

 

Tip: Pages will not display in category list modules set to sort by popularity if this tickbox is disabled.

Note: The default behaviour of this field can be set in the Content module global module settings (Contegro Start > Administrator > Global Module Settings > Content).

Page Classes

If your site has custom requirements for the way lists are displayed/managed (i.e. page lists, category lists, search results, etc), you can use the tickboxes in this field to apply a class (or classes) to the page for styling purposes.

 

Designer Tip: Use the List Manager to manage your Page Class list.
