Editing or changing a tab/category or subcategory

Note that all images below are taken from a standard Plone website - your website may have a different look, so the images are only a guide, they may not be exact.

Your website comes with some basic categories setup for you - Home, Services and/or Products, News, Events, etc.

As your website grows, this may not be enough. To organise the information you want people to read, you can add new categories or subcategories.

Then you might change your mind about what a category/subcategory should be called. This shows you how to change it.

1. Log in to your website with the Login Name and Password that we gave you, if you are not already logged in. (You will see a Log In section at the bottom of the Navigation on the left if you are not logged in). Instructions are here.

2. Navigate to the category or subcategory you want to change.


3. Click Edit.



4. Change the Title.

a. Highlight the text.


b. Type the new text.


5. Change the Description if you want.

a. Highlight the text to change.


b. Type the new text.


This will appear when people hold the mouse over the tab at the top of the page if this is a category, or when the mouse hovers over the title in the Navigation.

6. Click the Save button at the bottom of the screen.



7. This will leave the URL (the information that appears in the address bar at the top of your browser) with the previous title details. See here for instructions on how to change this.
