Creating and Managing Typepad Pages
Pages are a way to add content to your blog without creating a post, like pages in a non-blog website. For example, you could create a Page to be an "about" page for the specific blog, "about" pages for Guest Authors, a contact page, etc.
Pages will retain the layout and design that you've specified for the blog, including sidebar content. Pages will not appear in your blog's feed.
Creating a New Page
To create a new Page, select New Page from the Compose button. You can also click to the Posts tab, then select the Pages link in the left hand sidebar, and click New Page.
On the Compose page, title your Page and use the Page Body area to fill in the content you would like to include. Pages, like Posts, can be composed using the Rich Text or Plain Text editor. See our overview of the Compose editor for more information.
Like a Post, you can choose to set comments to None, Open, or Closed and whether you'd like to accept TrackBacks on your Page.
The filename for the Page will use the first 25 characters in your Page title, or you can set your own title by entering up to 255 characters in the Filename field.
The URL for the Page includes the URL for your blog and the Filename followed by
You can save the Page as a Draft or use the Publish Now option to publish the Page immediately to your blog.
Guest and Junior Authors can also create new Pages. Guest Authors can publish a new Page immediately. Junior Authors can save a Page as a draft for the Blog Admin to Publish.
To manage your existing Pages, go to the Posts tab for the blog and click on the Pages link. This will display a list of all of your Pages and includes information on the Page's file name, when the Page was created and who it was created by.
Use the More Actions menu at the bottom of the Pages listing to publish/unpublish pages, open/close comments, or accept/do not accept TrackBacks. More information about these options can be found here.
The Pages module will automatically generate a linked list of your Pages in your blog's sidebar. To enable the module, go to the Design tab, then choose Content and select Pages under Links to Your Blog's Content.
Click the Add this module button to set the title and sort order for your Pages listing. You can specify a heading for the list of Pages on your sidebar, as well as choose how you want them displayed. You can sort your Pages by title or creation date, from oldest to newest.
After enabling and configuring the module, press Save Changes at the bottom of the page.
You can change the configuration of the Pages module at any time by clicking on the pencil icon next to the module on the Content page. You can remove the Pages module by clicking the red X next to the module.
