Site Tree

The Site Tree displays the existing structure of the portal. There are a series of pages and folders under the HOME root. Folders represent menu items or tabs on the menu bar. Pages represent individual panes. Expand on the folder if you want to add content below the folder. Click on the HOME root if you want to add a new folder or a page that will exist on the upper menu (for example WELCOME)
