Page Parent

For the structure of the site, a page parent is a page with subpages. For example if there is an “about” page with a “company history” subpage, the “about” page would be the page parent of the “company history” page. The url path to the “about” page would be domain.com/about/ and the “company histroy” page would be domain.com/about/company-history/.

In the Zesty.io Content section children pages are below, slightly indented, and smaller than parents. When using Parsley the {{ navigation }} call or the {{ sectionlinks }} call will create sublist items for all children pages.
