This learning unit covers adding a child page to a book.
For more information about books and child pages, see Terms: book, child page, parent page, and book outline.
To add a child page to an existing page in a book:
- Navigate to the page you want to add a child page to.
- Click the Add child page link.
- This will create a new Basic page. See Add a new Basic page (node) for information about filling out the Create Basic Page form.
- The Book outline section (Power Contributors and above, only) of the Create Basic Page form should not need editing: using the Add child page link pre-populates it with the appropriate settings for a child page of the relevant parent page.
Only Power Contributors and above can edit a book's outline. Contributors can add a child page but cannot adjust what order it appears in in the book.
