Types of pages

Haiku has two types of pages - a web page and a cover page.

Web pages contain a rich text editor which can be accessed through the Edit button in the top left corner.

A cover page allows you to design the page's layout. A cover page contains a layout button and a compose button both of which appear in the top left corner.

Cover Page

Cover Page Layout

To edit a Cover Page's layout:

  • Click on the Layout button which can be found at the top left corner of the page
  • A box will appear on the left of the page and is called drag and drop tiles. This contains different tiles for different uses. For example, a Rich text tile allows you to add some text to your page.
