Finding the name of a page

  1. Each page in the content tree is named after its URL and nested under any pages in its URL structure. If your URL is https://www.yvr.ca/en/passengers/parking-yvr you’ll be able to find the page you’re looking for under ‘Passengers’ in the ‘content tree’. The page name in this example will be ‘Parking YVR’.

NOTE: This is important to remember when first creating a page, as the page name directly impacts the URL structure. Changing a page name after it is created and live on the website, or changing its location in the content tree could cause visitors to the old URL to receive a 404 page not found error.

Finding the page in the content tree

  1. Once you have the page URL structure, log into Sitecore using your credentials.
  2. Select ‘Content Editor.
  3. Select the arrow next to ‘Content’ in the menu on the left.
  4. Select the arrow next to ‘YVR’.
  5. Select the arrow next to ‘Home’.
  6. A ‘content tree’ will open that contains all the pages on the YVR website. You can find the page you want to edit in this content tree manually, or search for it using the ‘search bar’ above the content tree.
