Creating a node

Nodes create the structure of your website so they need to be created when setting up your site or when you want to add a new section to it.

Let's look at an example of how they work. Below is the Editor, if you look at the structure on the left of the page, you'll see a node called Main. Within that, there are 2 more nodes (Men and Women). Within the Men node, there are 3 sub-nodes (New arrivals, Clothing, and Shoes), and the Women node also has 3 sub-nodes within it (New arrivals, Clothing, and Shoes).

You can see when the burger menu is clicked on the preview on the right of the screen, that the 2 sections (plus Sales which is in the node screen but just out of focus on the list) that appear at the top are the same as the nodes (Men and Women) and when these are selected, the sub-nodes within them are displayed.

Node example in Stage

To create a new node within your website:

Click New and select Create Node
Click new and select Create Node
Input a Node Name (this will be displayed to you and your users), the Node Path (the URL), and the Parent Node (where your new node will sit within your structure)
In the below example, we're creating a new Accessories sub-node that'll be within the Men node:

Add a stream if you need to (this depends on what Tastics you'll be adding to your page within your node, don't worry, you can update this later if you need to), add the stream info, and click the back arrow

Add any other info you'd like to (you can come back and change it later) and click Save
Saving a new node

Your node is now in your navigation and you can now add a page to it. But first, let's look at how to edit an existing node.
