Opening the page builder
- Go to the page you wish to edit (this article excludes features for Homepage & News Centre).
- Select 'Edit Content and Layout' from the page tools menu.
This will open the drag and drop Page Builder.
Choosing Modules & Widgets
The editor's icon bar contains two sets of icons - Modules and Widgets. Widgets:
Can be used multiple times on a page.
Content is added to modules in the published view of the page.
Can be used only once on each page.
Content is created and edited directly in the page builder view.
Adding to page
Position Modules and Widgets by dragging them to the desired location on the page.
Editing a widget
To edit a widget, hover over the widget with the cursor until the Edit button appears.
To delete a widget, click the trash icon.
Note: Removing a widget will delete the content that it contains.
Editing a module
To remove a module or widget from the page, click the Remove button in the page builder.
Note: Removing a module does NOT delete the content that it contains. If the module or widget is dragged back on to the page the content will still be present.
To edit a module, exit the page builder view and access the module directly from the page.
Note: when creating a new Ultranet page, modules from the parent page will be duplicated on the new subpage. You can remove or rearrange these as required.

Locking the layout
