Pages module documentation

The pages module allows you to edit the page content and order of your website.

Access permissions

If you can't see these sections in your admin control panel it is possible that your user doesn't have permission to edit pages.

If your user doesn't have permission to edit pages, but your user does have permission to edit users, you can edit your own user and tick the 'can edit pages' box.

If you don't have permission to edit your own user privileges please either contact the person in charge of your website. If that is you, then please contact us for help.
