Number of Allowed Pages
The number of pages you can add to your website is determined by your plan type.
Lite plan: 10 pages
Standard plan: 20 pages
Pro plan: Unlimited pages
Note: All page types count as one page each. Even if the page is a sub-page, a page not in menu, or password-protected page, they each count as one page in your total page limit (Lite and Standard plans).
How to add pages to your website:
- From the ‘Edit Content’ tab, click ‘Pages’
- Select ‘Add a page’
- Select a Page Type
- Name your page in the ‘Title’ field (defaults to the page type if unchanged)
- Adjust your page options (See details below)
- Click ‘Create my page’
To delete, rename, or reorder pages please view the ‘Deleting, Renaming, and Reordering Pages’ help article.
When you select a preset page, the page will be loaded by default with the features most commonly used for that page type. If you’d like to create a new page with no preloaded features, select ‘Blank Page’.
- To add new features to any page, click the ‘Add Feature’ button in the ‘Edit Content’ tab.
- To delete any features on the preset page, hover your cursor over the feature in the ‘Edit Content’ tab and click the trash icon next to that feature.
- To change the title above any preloaded feature (or group of features), click the title in the ‘Edit Content’ tab. This will open the section options where you can change the title for that section.
Each page name below is linked to a help article with more information about that corresponding feature. Example: Music links to the ‘Adding Music’ help article.

- External Link: Add the URL (website address) of an external website to which you want to link this menu button. Note: This option is not available for pages that have already been created. If you’d like to set up a link to an external website on an existing page, you’ll first need to change the name of your existing page or delete the existing page, then create a new page with the page name you’d like to use.
- Intro: A landing page with no header image or features. A blank page with the exception of an ‘Enter Site’ button, which can be modified.
Intro page notes:
- The Intro page cannot be moved. It is automatically the first page visitors see when loading your website, until you delete or unpublish it.
- The Intro page background color and content font color can be changed through the ‘Edit Theme’ tab.
- The Intro page does not display the navigation menu.
- The ‘Enter Site’ button can be removed through the Intro page options:
- From the ‘Edit Content’ tab, click ‘Pages’ then click the pencil icon next to the page name
- Click ‘Advanced settings’
- Make your selection next to ‘Show intro link?’ (yes/no)
- Click ‘Save’
Best practice: An intro page is great for displaying a temporary message, but shouldn’t be used long-term. Use it for announcements about your new album release or an upcoming tour, then take it down after about two weeks. Longer than that, it becomes an extra step for fans to access your website - this can be annoying to click through every time they visit. Fans should be encouraged to come back, so make the homepage the focus of your band’s website design, rather than the intro page.
