Create pages on your site

Pages add more to your sites by giving you a place to share additional information. Give details on specific content such as work done by a particular department or team, or provide focus for your initiative sites by highlighting specific metrics and goals. You can create an unlimited number of pages that can be added to multiple sites so that you can quickly share the same content across all relevant sites.

To get started, you must have created the site or be an administrator to manage a site's pages. Click the Sites tab in the admin application, then click the Pages button on the appropriate site. Additionally, the Pages manager is available as a tab under Site Configuration. This tab is where you add and delete pages, edit page layout, and determine sharing settings.

Add a new page

When you create a new page, an ArcGIS Online item is created in your Content page. Your page and this item are linked. It is important that the ArcGIS Online item is not deleted. If the page item is deleted in ArcGIS Online, the page will be deleted. The page item is automatically shared with the HubSites team so members from the Team tab can edit the page.

The full page URL will be data.[your-org][your-page].

  1. From the Site Manager or from within an individual site configuration, click Pages.
  2. Click New Page.
  3. Provide a name for the page.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Your new page is added to the list automatically.

The page URL is automatically generated from lower-cased page title. Spaces are replaced with hyphens and all special characters are removed.


Each page URL is preceded with /pages/.

Edit page URL

The text at the end of your page's URL is called a slug. It can be modified to help you achieve a consistent web experience that aligns with your organization's existing standards.

  1. From the Site Manager or from within an individual site configuration, click Pages.
  2. Click the edit button next to the right of the page URL.
  3. Enter a new slug.
  4. Click the check mark to save your new slug or click the cancel button to start over.

A page's slug can also be edited within the Page Editor under the Page Information drop-down menu. Enter text for a new slug under Page Slug. Click Save, then click View Page to see your new slug.

Design page layout

The Layout Builder experience for pages is the same as it is for sites. However, within the Layout Builder for a page you will not be able to edit the header or footer of the page as these are inherited from the site to which the page is being added.

  1. After adding a page, click the pencil icon under Actions.
  2. The layout editor will open with a default template.
  3. Click the gear in the upper left corner to access the side bar.
  4. Use the Layout Builder to configure the layout of your page.
  5. Click View Page to view your page outside of the editor.

Change page sharing settings

Share your page with your team, your organization, or publicly.

  1. After adding a page, three icons appear under Shared. Use these to select your sharing setting:
    • Private--only logged in members of the HubSites Team tab can view this page.
    • Organization--members of your ArcGIS Online organization can view this page.
    • Public--allow anonymous access to this page.

Create Hyperlinks

When you want to create a hyperlink to a page you need to use the HTML <a> syntax to insert the link. If you use a relative path in the <a> tag instead of the absolute path, you will prevent a full page refresh when you click on the link.

  1. Edit the Site or Page where the link should go.
  2. In a text card on the Page or Site, insert an <a> tag where you want the link to be.
  3. Copy the Slug of the target Page from the Pages tab of your Site to the href="" attribute of your <a> tag. For example <a href="/pages/target-page">Visit the linked page</a>
  4. Save your Site and click Preview Site and test out the new link.

If you wish to have the link open in a new tab, append target="_blank" directly after your href attribute on the <a> tag.

Use a single page on multiple sites

You can re-use a single page on multiple sites from the Sites tab inside the administrative application.

If you have a page currently being used by a particular site and you want to use it on another site, follow these steps:

  1. Visit the Sites tab within the admin app.
  2. Under your the site which you wish to add an existing page, click Pages.
  3. Click Link Page to see a list of all pages in your organization.
  4. Select the page you wish to import onto your site.
  5. Confirm the details of your selected page and change the page URL.
  6. Click Link Page to finalize the linking. This edits the page and the attached site.

You cannot have two pages on the same site using the same URL.


If you edit the layout of a linked page, it will alter the layout in all the places the page is being used.

Delete a page

  1. Click the trash icon under Actions for the site you want to delete.
  2. Click Delete Page to confirm.
