  2. Create your page and make sure you select the radio button next to Put page at top level.
  3. Repeat this step for any of the other main pages.

Add subpages below main pages

  1. On the left side of any page, click the page to which you'd like to add a subpage.
  2. Click Create Page. Make sure you select the radio button next to Put page under (name of the top level page). Repeat this for each subpage under each main page.

Your main pages will appear on the left side of the page with arrows to open up subpages.

  4. In the dialog that appears, select the option "Automatically organize my navigation."
  5. Choose how many levels of pages you want to display.
  6. Click OK.

  1. Click the top level page in the sidebar, then click the Edit page button.
  2. Click Insert > Subpage listing.
