Working with pages

What is a Page?

A Page in React Bricks represent a unit of content.
Using the default starter projects, it corresponds to a page of the website, or a blog post.

A page has its content, but it has also a type, name, slug, author, meta values (title, description, language, featured image, reading time), author, status, lock status, tags and creation date.

See the Page type

Page editing

You can edit the content of the page (blocks) and its meta information (name, slug, title, description, language, tags, author, featured image, published/draft, locked/unlocked) through the Admin dashboard.

A page with slug "home" is required. When you use the Starter projects, as it becomes the website's Home page.

Each page has a pageType (see Page Types).

When you create a page, based on the schema of its page type, it has a default content, status, lock status, language and it may have only some of the bricks available to be used as content blocks.

If the content from the database contains some blocks unknown or not allowed (for example because they are no more allowed), you will see a warning with the number and type of invalid blocks. By saving the page, you will remove these invalid blocks.

Locked Pages

The content of a Locked page can be edited but it isn't possible to add / remove / sort blocks, so the page structure is fixed.

For <Repeater> Blocks, new items can be added or removed even if the page is locked.
