How to use signposts

Signposts are small text boxes that guide users to a different page on your website. You can set up a library of signposts that can easily be added to any page. Signposts are great for consistently and easily promoting important action pages like 'donate'. 

Before you start, create a list of the most important destination pages on your website. These are often action pages that end someone's journey, like an application form or a donation payment process. They may also be popular sections like your event listing page. These should be pages that you want to promote across lots of sections of your website. 

Creating signposts

To create a signpost:

  • Go to Website > Signposts in the toolbar.
  • Create new signpost.
  • Add a title and body text to your signpost. Make it something people will want to click on.
  • Choose a destination page from the dropdown list. You need to create the destination page before you can create a signpost.
  • Save.

Editing a signpost

  • Go to Website > Signposts in the toolbar.
  • Click the Edit icon next to the signpost you want to edit.
  • Make your changes and click save.

Note: The changes you make will take effect on ALL instances of this signpost that are already on your website.

Adding signposts to pages

  • Go to the page you want to edit.
  • Click Signposts on the on-page toolbar (not the toolbar at the top of the window).
  • Tick all the signposts you want to add to your page.
  • Click Done.

Note: Signpost placement take immediate effect. Signposts are placed on the page in the order in which you add them. You can't add signposts to list pages.
