Creating Catalog Pages

by Skilljar Customer Training
Follow

Catalog Pages are a display object that can contain courses, paths, and/or other pages. 

There are two types of Catalog Pages: 

  • Type 1 - Catalog Home Page: This is the page that you navigate to at your root URL. For example, in the case of Skilljar Academy, this is academy.skilljar.com
    • The Catalog Home Page is denoted by the house icon in your Catalog Pages Tab
    • This page cannot be deleted and exists by default
    • You cannot change the URL of your Catalog Home Page

    • The Tile Image on this page can be edited to serve as an unfurl image on Social Media posts
  • Type 2 - Catalog Page: Any page you've created.
    • The settings mentioned above are configurable for these pages. 
    • You can choose to set any Catalog Page as the Default Home Page for a group. Learn more here. 

 

To create a New Catalog Page:

  1. Navigate to the Domains and Publishing Section of the Dashboard.
