Now that you have installed Drupal 7, the next thing we would like to teach you is how to write content. You can think of content as text you will publish to your website, whether it be an About Us type page or a page with the latest news about your business.

There can be different types of content you can write. The default installation of Drupal 7 includes the following two types of content:

  1. Articles
  2. Basic Pages
Articles Basic Pages
Articles in Drupal 7 can be thought of as news and announcements. This is content that you publish frequently, and the time or frequency that you publish the content is important. Basic pages in Drupal 7 is content that is more permanent, such as an About Us type page. Sure, you can edit your About Us page whenever you would like, but it is generally not a page that you would remove from your navigation, such as a news item. 

There are more content types that you can create in Drupal 7, but Articles and Basic Pages are the only ones that are ready for you to use right now. As we progress further into our Drupal 7 education channel, we'll cover other content types more in depth.

Now that we covered the basics on Articles vs. Basic Pages, let's now look into how to create them:

Hello Wolfgang,

Thank you for your question. I am unable to see into your account since you are not one of our customers, but I will try and give you the best information for what it seems is going on.
Creating a Basic Page - This article will display Menu Settings for your page. This will also show when editing the page. Set the Parent Item to the Main Menu and the button should appear next to the Veterinary medicine button on your site.

I am not showing the site in maintenance mode, so if you are still seeing that, check your browser cache to see if it is clear. However, below is our link on enabling/disablign maintenance mode, so just be sure that is correct. Enabling Maintenance mode

Kindest Regards,
Scott M

Hello wolfgang,

We are happy to help, but will need further details to investigate further. I saw you posted this comment in the Drupal 7 section, are you using Drupal 7?

What button do you want to change or reactivate?

Are you getting an error? What is the error?

Did you perform any updates or maintenance before this issue occurred?

Can you provide a link to the website, so we can replicate/view the error?

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
Thank you,

Hello Bkupadhyay,

Thanks for the question. I spent a little time looking for how you can set access control on a child category for a content type and it doesn't appear to any way to do this without adding a module. The module I'm looking at (content access) may provide the answer that you need.

Let us know if you still require any further assistance.
