Inside the AmmoReady dashboard you have the ability to create custom Pages to feature any content you wish.

In this guide, we'll go through how to create a simple About Us type page.

*Note: Creating a new page allows you to adjust page-specific SEO settings which isn't covered in this guide. To learn more about SEO settings, please visit: Add SEO tags to your storefront.

From your Dashboard, go to Website > Pages.

Next, click on + New Page to create a new custom page.

A new window will pop up titled New Page. Here we can Name (title) your page, as well as, add a Description that will automatically populate on your new page (under the title). Optionally, you are able to specify a URL for this new page, or a url based on the Name you choose will automatically be created. All of these settings can be changed later.

In this guide, we're going to name our page About Us, but leave the other fields blank for now. Click Create Page when you're done filling out the fields.

After creating the new page, you'll see a variety of settings and content options available. You'll notice on the right-bottom side of this page that our URL has been automatically generated based on the Name we gave our page.

*Note: you may also notice a variety of SEO Settings on the right side of this page. See our Add SEO tags to your storefront to go over these settings.

We can see that there is an auto-generated Content Area that was created. You'll notice that this Content Area has already been filled in with the Name we gave it earlier. This will be the header/title for our custom page. You can edit and change this however you wish, but for this guide we're going to leave it as is.

Now that our page has a title, let's add a new Widget to handle displaying additional content, like a few paragraphs of text about our business. Click on the + Add a Widget button and then select the Content Area option.

A new Content Area widget will appear below our existing Content Area. Toggle the Content Area on by clicking the Off/On button. Next, click the arrow dropdown to view the available options.

As you can see, there are multiple formatting options for your text. Additionally, if you know how to manipulate HTML, click on the code editor "<>" to open up the HTML code.

Adjust the settings however you wish. We're going to paste in a few placeholder paragraphs of text as an example.

Next, we're going to add a photo to our page. Let's create another Content Area by following the previous steps. Once the Content Area is created, you can add a photo by dragging and dropping the file from your computer, or clicking on the Image icon and pasting in a link of a photo from someplace else on the internet.

Once your image is inserted, click on the image to bring up additional image settings.

Once you've finished with your content, check the Publish box so your page will be available on your storefront. If you wish to also link this page to your header menu, check the Show in Menu box as well. Finally, click Update Page when you're finished to save your settings.

You've now successfully created a custom page.
