Editor (Advanced)

Admin Page Editor

The Page Editor in the admin is a powerful text editor and page manager that enables you to create your page's content (including media files), its publishing and taxonomy options, settings, overrides, and theme-specific options.

It's essentially a one-stop-shop for managing a specific page.

In this page, we will go over the features and functionality found in the Advanced tab of the Page Editor.

Accessing the Pages functionality requires an access.admin.super or access.admin.pages permission, see Profile

You might notice the check boxes to the left of some of the options in this area of the admin. These boxes indicate that you would like to override the default values for this page. Leaving them unchecked reverts to blank or default states.
