Kubio - the kickstart

Find out how you can use Kubio for designing the website you envision.

How to create, delete or duplicate pages, and navigate between pages and posts

Creating pages and posts in the WordPress Dashboard

The moment you want to create a page or post, you can go to Pages/Posts from the WordPress dashboard, then select “Add New”.

You’ll be taken to the Default Gutenberg editor where you can name your page.

WordPress page slug

On the right you will see the URL that your page will have. You can change the URL/slug in the Gutenberg editor, but not in Kubio.

Now that the URL is assigned/changed, let’s go to Kubio from the “Edit in Kubio” button at the top.

Creating pages inside the Kubio Editor

You can also create pages straight from Kubio.

  • Start by entering any page by using “Edit with Kubio”,
  • Click on the burger menu in the upper-left corner, to open the navigational panel,
  • Select “Pages”,
  • Now, you will see a list with all the pages in the website. Now click on the “New” button to create a new page.
  • In the window that shows up in the middle of the screen, choose the “Create from scratch” option.
  • A new pop-up will appear. In the “Add page” window, fill in the page title and assign a page template.

  • Click the “Add page” button.

Navigating between pages and posts

If you want to navigate between pages and posts to edit them, you can do this two ways:

  • From the WordPress dashboard.

You can go to Pages, then hover over your desired page or post and select “Edit with Kubio”.

If you select just “Edit” you’ll enter the Default WordPress Editor. But you can switch from here to the Kubio Editor from the “Edit with Kubio” button at the top of your screen.

When you select the Kubio icon from the WordPress dashboard, you’ll be taken to your site’s front page for editing.

Now, let’s say you want to move from the front page to a post. Just open the site content panel (aka navigational panel) by clicking on the icon at the center-top of your screen, or click on the Kubio logo from the upper-left corner.

A navigational panel will open up and you will see the Site Content structured as Pages, Posts, and Categories.

If you go to “Pages,” you’ll see all your website pages, and you can switch to another page to edit it.

Tip:  Let’s go back a bit to the WordPress dashboard -> Pages or Posts.

If you hover over any page or post you’ll see a bunch of options. If you select “Quick edit” you will be able to quickly change titles, URLs, publishing dates.

How to use the navigational panel to delete and duplicate pages

Let’s go back to the navigational panel. For this we will need to go inside a page using the “Edit with Kubio” option. When inside the Editor, you can click on the Kubio logo in the upper-left to open up the navigational panel.

Let’s click on “Pages” to see the all the website’s pages. If you hover over the names of the pages you will notice an icon saying “More tools and options”. Click on it.

You will now see an option for page duplication and another one for page removal.

When you click on the “Duplicate” option, a window will pop up in the middle of the Editor asking you to name the new page. After that, hit the “Duplicate page” button and you’re done.

Name the duplicate page

When you click on the “Delete” option a window will pop up in the middle of the Editor asking you to confirm that you agree with the page deletion. You can recover the deleted page from the WordPress Dashboard -> Pages -> Trash.

Confirm page deletion

You can’t delete the page you’re on, you will need to open another page, then delete it.
