How to add pages with content to your website

Adding content and sub-pages to your MereChurch couldn't be simpler! Once your site is launched and ready to go you may need to add more pages to your site over time. 

To add a page, just click the 'Pages' menu on the far left —from there, you'll see a list of all your pages. Click the '+' icon to add a new page. 

(Quick Tip: You can also click the '+ Create' button in the upper left by your church name and type in 'Pages' to quickly add a new Page from anywhere in the software).

The MereChurch content editor is designed to give you full control of your content, without bothering you over minute visual details. Every block you can add to your page content will work well with your theme, regardless of which one you've picked!
