Visible in Menu
Checking this flag will make the page visible in the website’s menu. An admin can create a hidden page, by leaving this flag set to non-active.
Visible In Mobile Menu
Checking this flag will hide the page in a mobile menu of your website. This feature must be pre-configured and is available only in certain scenarios, specific to a customer deployment.
- Scenario 1 – The website has an adaptive menu, such as a hamburger menu. If this flag is selected the page will not show up in your mobile menu view.
- Scenario 2 – The flag can be configured to fire a media query that will show hide an element, page or content block when setting active on your mobile website.
Visible in Site Map

- Permanent Redirects – These are known as 301 redirects
- Temporary Redirects - These are known as 302 redirects

In addition, should content move, the old links will not redirect to the new ones causing your content to be out of sync when accessed via a search engines results page.
This drop-down allows you to specify whether or not the redirect is to open within the same or new browser window.

This field is used to specify the page description that the search engines read when indexing your websites. This is a metadata field within your CMS.
This field is used to input keywords for your page. Adding keywords to this field will not only affect the indexability of the page with search engines but will impact the weighting of the built-in CMS search engine on your website. This is a metadata field within your CMS.
