Page Settings

Page settings can be reached by clicking the page title block at the top of the Page Editor screen, and controls the display of content on the page and within its block in the menu.

The title of the page.

The title that is displayed in the course itself. This value is typically bound to the Title setting, but can be changed independently. Note that for most uses, this should be left the same as the Title.

While it can be useful to remove the display title for Blocks and Components, removing the Display Title for Pages removes the title from both the page and the menu.

Rich-text that is displayed on the page above any Blocks or Components.

Rich-text that is displayed on the Menu block for this page.

Text intended as instructions to the user on how to complete the page. Not typically used on pages.

Adds additional HTML class names to the page. Developer Use Only: Courses with custom page classes will not be supported by developers.

Text label for the button on the menu block that opens the page. When changing this value, ensure that the menu can support the amount of text, as some menus assume a single word.

Text that indicates how long it will take the user to view the contents of the page. Note that not all menus support this setting.

This setting has no effect on the course and is only presented to give the learner an idea of how long it will take them to complete the page.

When using Custom locking, this section should contain a list of IDs for the pages that must be completed before this page will become enabled. Keep in mind that this field can have odd results if custom locking is not set in Project Settings.

An optional page does not have to be completed, nor do any of the articles, blocks and components contained within it. May have unexpected results when used with menu locking.

If unchecked, the page will not appear in the menu and cannot be navigated to using the URL. This can be effective if the page is used in Start list in the Project Settings as it removes the page from the menu.

Sets the visibility of the page to display:none or visibility:hidden. This option is provided for custom themes that utilize custom display of pages. Typically, you will want these options left at their default unless directed to alter them by developers.

Turning these options on in a normal course will hide content from the user, making it impossible to complete the course.

Adds a graphic to the menu block for this item. Use Select an Asset to select an image and set the alt text using the Alternative text field.

Unless you have a dedicated CDN to deliver static assets, using Select an External Asset is extremely dangerous. Use of external assets is not supported by the development team.

These options are used by some themes to add visual effects to elements when the user scrolls to them and they become visible. Currently, no themes make use of these settings, or create the functionality internally.
