Each Section / Infopage on the public site is a separate page with its own URL. The steps for creating, editing, and publishing Sections and Infopages in Pangea CMS are very similar. However, these page types serve different purposes:
A Section typically lets visitors browse the latest news on a particular topic. The content on a Section is updated regularly. Your site's homepage is an example of a Section.
An Infopage typically lets visitors find information about your service. The content on an Infopage is updated only occassionally. Your site's About and Contact us pages are examples of Infopages.
Review every available Section / Infopage that is created for your site via Sections in the top menu. Select Sections or Infopages, depending which page type you want to manage.
Select + Add new to create a new page. Alternatively, hit the title for an existing item to start editing it.
Widgets are the visual elements that are used to create Sections / Infopages. You can add any of the following widgets:
To create a new widget, locate your chosen widget type under Widgets in the left panel. Then, drag and drop the box to your preferred position on the page.
You can also add an existing widget from the Widget library. For detailed information about using library widgets, see the following article:
Layout blocks run horizontally across the page. Each block includes one or more slots for inserting widgets. In the screenshot below, a 4-column layout block with 2 widget slots is highlighted.
The following default layout blocks are applied on new pages:
- Section: A selection of 4-column layout blocks.
- Infopage: A selection of 3-column layout blocks.
A new Section page also includes 2 layout blocks for inserting special Content widgets (shown below). For detailed information about special Content widgets, see the following article:
You can swap the default layout blocks via Layout builder. To access Layout builder, select Layout at the top of the page. For detailed information, see the following article:
Use the options under Breakpoint preview to check how the page will look on devices with different screen sizes. The following options are available:
- L = Desktop
- M = Tablet
- S = Mobile
A Sub Navigation is a collection of links that can be added at the top of any Section / Infopage. The purpose of a Sub Navigation is to let visitors quickly navigate to important pages. The available links in a Sub Navigation should be changed only rarely.
For detailed information about creating and managing Sub Navigations, see the following article:
You can manage the cloned versions of a Section / Infopage under Versions in the left panel.
Creating a clone lets you edit the page privately without impacting the published version. For detailed information, see the following article:
When you create a new Section / Infopage, it is important to consider Search Engine Optimization (SEO). For detailed information about the settings that are important for SEO, see the following article:
Before publishing a Section / Infopage, you need to complete the required settings:

- Update the Localize title (can be in any language).
- Tick the box next to Localize title if you want the title to be visible on the public site (otherwise it is visible only in Pangea CMS).
