A multi-page site is a different way for you to showcase your content and add visitor interactions to your site. Check out our example of a multiple page site here. This PRO feature will enable you to convert your one pager into a multiple page site with ease.
Here's how you can create a multiple page site Strikingly!
Before You Begin
If your site is live, we recommend first cloning your main/homepage site and working off the copy to prevent changes affecting your site visitors. To clone your site, click the gear and select "CLONE":
Note: Cloning your site will not transfer your form data, Simple Blog posts or Simple Store data.
About Multiple Pages
- You can add up to 100 pages in your multiple page site
- Your section-level navigation menu will be replaced with a page-level navigation menu
- You can’t use different templates for different pages on your multiple page site - this is to maintain design consistency throughout the pages on your site
- We currently allow for one social feed, one blog, and one simple store section per multi-page site
Step 1: Activating Multiple Pages
Go into the editor > Click [SETTINGS] > MULTIPLE PAGES. There, you'll see the option to Activate Multiple pages.
Step 2: Adding Pages
After you’ve activated the multiple page mode, you’ll see a new drop-down option where "Manage Pages" is nested under and "MANAGE" above the page drop-down. Both options will take you to the page manager, where you can manage, add, delete, and hide your pages. Click either [Manage Pages] or [MANAGE] to add pages.
Select the option to [Add New Page], rename your new page, and repeat until you’ve added all your new pages to the site.
You can always come back to the Page Manager to rename, reorder, add, or delete pages. Once you’ve set up your pages, click [Back to site design] to add content to your new pages.
Step 3: Adding Content to New Pages
Now that you’re back in the section editor, start adding content, and moving sections around each page.
To add new sections to a page, click on the Page Selector to choose which page you want to add content to.
And then add or delete sections in the left panel as you would normally.
To move sections to another page:
You can easily move sections around from page-to-page on your multiple page site. Go to the section you’d like to move around and click the gear icon beside the section title and click "Move to page".
Select the page you want to move the section to and violà!
Step 4: Setting Up Domain and Linking for Your Multiple Page Site
Setting Up Page Domains:
We automatically generate domain paths (or URLS) from each page title for you. For example, if your domain is http://sunnysideup.mystrikingly.com, and then your page titled “About Us” will have the URL http://sunnysideup.mystrikingly.com/about-us. The same goes for each of the pages you’ve added to your multiple page site - the links are all automatically created for all your pages.
Linking to Sections and Pages:
If you’re want to link to a specific page of your site - the link will look like this:
For example, my domain is http//:sunnysideup.mystrikingly.com and the page I want to link to is “Eggnog Blog”. My url will be:
If you want to create a link to a specific section on a specific page, this is the link structure:
For example, I want to link to the second section on the SSUP Seoul page, this is what my link will look like:
Step 5: Reverting Back to a Single Page
If at any point you find yourself missing your old one-pager - just go back into your site [SETTINGS] > [Advanced] > [MULTIPLE PAGES] and click the “Revert to single page” button. When you revert your page, we'll hide all the pages, only leaving the content in your home page. But don't worry, you can always reactive multiple pages to restore all of your sections.
If you'd like to make a copy of one or more of your existing pages, you can do that by:
1. Clicking "Manage" right above your page drop-down on the left panel of your site editor.
2. Then click the gear icon next to the page you want to duplicate. Select "Duplicate this page" from the options.
3. Click "OK" on the dialog box that says "Are you sure you wish to duplicate the "[Page name]" page? ALL PAGE CONTENT WILL BE DUPLICATED."
- Duplicated pages cannot be moved from one site to another.
- If there is a blog or store on a page, cloning the page will duplicate the blog and the store, but not the store or blog contents.
Since blog & store sections are ways to show the contents of the blog/store, those sections will be cloned but the contents are the same.
Example: Home Page has a Blog section with 5 blog posts:
1. blog post A
2. blog post B
3. blog post C
4. blog post D
5. blog post E
If the Home Page is duplicated, the duplicate page will also have a blog section that contains the same blog posts. If you delete blog post A in the duplicate page, then it will be deleted from the original page (Home Page) too.
