Creating an About Page

Creating an "About" page is a way to provide a brief overview of your group.


When you initially created your group, you added your group “Description” and a “Mission statement”.

This content can be included in your “About” page by using widgets.

First create an "About" Page by adding a new page in Panels. (see Creating Custom Pages for additional instructions).

When your page is set up and named, click the "Edit content"  link to the right of the "About" panel page title.

You will be taken to a page that shows the regions of your panel page. Click on the gear icon in the upper left corner of the region in which you want your content to appear.


Select "Add content" from the dropdown menu to add widgets and custom content.


Click either the "OG description" or "OG Mission" link to add the desired content to your page and click “Finish”

You may also add new custom content or content from an existing node to your "about" page by following the Add Custom Content” instructions. 
Click on the widget name to insert that widget. A new page will launch with a "Finish" button. Click the "Finish" button to insert the widget. Only one widget at a time may be added using this process.
After both widgets are added, click the "Save" button at the bottom of your panel regions page to set your changes.

Your description and mission statement will now show on your "About" page.
