Subpages refer to a lower level webpage within a website or wiki. The url for subpages begins identical to their parent page, followed by a slash (/) and text indicating the location of the subpage. For example, https://sites.google.com/site/514su2010/ is the home page of our class website, adding "/wiki-notes" to the end will take you to the subpage regarding Wiki Notes. The subpage system is recursive in that subpages can have their own nested subpages. Continuing the previous example, adding "/-1-website" will take you to a secondary subpage, and adding "/adding-a-subpage" to a tertiary subpage.
Subpages are a useful way to keep your site organized and user-friendly. The use of subpages should be logical and easy to follow. Buttons across the top of the page (under the banner), or a side-bar listing the different subpages are a great way to keep the information on your site accessible. In a classroom, setting you could have one subpage for homework assignments, one for grades, one for lecture slides, etc. Near the top of each subpage there should be a link to return to the previous "parent" page (also known as a "breadcrumb").
Here are instructions for inserting a subpage listing to your website:
