The Settings tab of the Page form offers a variety of additional settings that you can apply to the page, beyond just editing the content.
The first section of the Settings tab is the Page Settings. Here, you can alter all of the meta information about the page itself.
Slug - The page's slug determines its URL. If your page is a direct child of the homepage, and its slug is "example", its URL will be yoursite.caltech.edu/example. The form code will set this for you automatically, so you shouldn't typically need to change it.
Menu Title - This field determines how the page will be displayed in the menu. It will automatically populate with the title of the page, but if the title is particularly long, you'll want to edit this field to something more manageable. For instance, "Ronald and Maxine Linde Institute of Economic and Management Sciences" could be condensed to "Linde Institute" in this field.
Breadcrumb Title - Similar to Menu Title, but for the breadcrumb at the top of the page. If this is left blank, the full title will be used. Populate it to make the page's breadcrumb (highlighted in red below) shorter.
Page Title - If you want the title of the page to display differently in the browser tab than it does on the rendered page, populate this field. This is often useful for the same reason as the Menu Title field.
Show in Menus - Uncheck this box if you don't want this page to be displayed in the main menu or sidebar menus. This can be useful for pages that are accessible in other ways, and don't fit well in the menu. It can also be used to "hide" the page while edits are done to it. This checkbox affects the same property as the Show in Menu checkbox on the Sitemap.
Hide From Search Engines - Check this box to prevent search engines from indexing this page.
The "Teasers" tab allows you to manage fields used to control the display of your page when linked to on social media. These fields do not display on your page but they are used for creating the link previews social media platforms display to users. If the page you are creating is a news page, the teaser image and title will be used on the News Hub page or in News Teaser Blocks.
For more information about improving your site's social media reach, please see Preferences: Social Media Tab.
The most useful fields are the Teaser Image or Teaser Video fields. These allow you to add an image that will be displayed when someone posts a link to this page on social media. If you choose to use a teaser video, we will retrieve the first frame of your video to use as the teaser image.
Teaser Title - If you expect this page to be included in a listing (e.g. News, Events, or People listings), it may need a shorter title. If so, populate this field.
Meta Description - This field lets you specify the "search blurb" for a page. It's what will appear under the search results for that page, just under the title (highlighted in red below). If left unpopulated, the search engine will attempt to determine that blurb automatically.
