Single Page Site - First Time Instructions
Posted by Maria Brosnan on 27 June 2016 05:24 PM

These instructions are provided to assist users in setting up your own Single Page Site.

To start using the Single Page Site, first login to your Freeparking account by clicking “My Account” on the freeparking.co.nz site. If you have multiple domains in your Freeparking account, you will need to select the “Manage” button next to the domain you wish to use the Single Page Site for.

If you only have one domain then the domain management screen will automatically appear for you.

On the “Manage Domain” screen click on Service management and locate the “Single Page Site” section and click the “Modify” button.

Enable Single Page Site

If this button is not available you will need to contact Freeparking support for information on how to enable the Single Page Site for the domain.

On the next screen click the “Enable Single Page Site” button.

Enable button

This will enable the Single Page Site for the domain and provide access to the sections for managing the page, images and Meta tags.

Adding Custom Logos and Images

Once the single page site service is enabled you are presented with some choices. You may first want to start by entering the “File Manager” section and adding any image files you want to show on your Single Page Site.

File Manager

These maybe logos or other relevant images or pictures. The supported image formats are .jpg, .gif and .png. You may upload up to four images. You can later add these to your Single Page Site.

To upload an image to the File Manager section click on one of the “Browse” buttons and locate the file in the directory structure on your computer, select it and click “Open”. The selected file name should show in the field beside the Browse button you used.

Click the “Upload New Files” button

Once uploaded the file will show in the “Current Website Files” section.

Any images uploaded to the File Manager section will be available to add to the site from the page editor. You can have up to 4 images on the Single Page Site. If you do not want to include logos or additional images on your Single Page Site, ignore the File Manager and proceed to the next step.


Creating your Site

To begin creating the site click the “Page Manager” button under the section for “Page Management” (you may need to return to the Main Menu to see that).

Page Management

Use the “Template” drop down menu and select a Template to use and click the “Next” button. The Blank White template is proving very popular for the freedom it provides. That is the template chosen in the example below.
