Google Sites Package (Basic)
3 Unique Pages
The uniqueness of each page is based on its look, layout, features and functionality.
- Interior Page ( These are all the pages within the site except for homepage and contact pages.)
- Contact (This is the page where users will contact you with a form to fill out.)
1. Interior Pages : should only have regular content ( no fancy text or coding involved )
- Normal headers
- simples images (floated left or right or centered )
- Can add simple gadgets/widgets
- Simple gadgets like calendar, recent post etc. no special coding involved

2. Selected Theme Layout cannot be changed: e.g padding, margins ( no control ) / In short just follow the selected theme
3. Pages should only be simple / no complicated layout
4. Vertical Menu:
( Not automatic - can be manually sorted )
( Automatic ) Menus/Links are arranged alphabetically see reference:
Tick the Automatically organise my navigation box and then choose how many levels of pages to show. The number of sub-pages and the complexity of the site will determine what will look best. Reduce the levels to make it simpler and increase the levels if some pages are not showing but should be. Experiment and remember that you can set this up manually with more control if 'automatic' doesn't do what you need.
Home ← this always comes first
Horizontal Menu -( Not automatic - can be manually sorted )

- 3. Additional unique pages / interior pages
- Limited e-store capabilities, have to use the Google i-store gadget to add a shopping cart, iframe a third-party e-store provider such as Amazon, or use a Google Buy Now button.
- A site can also be displayed on a custom domain (e.g. www.example.com, wiki.example.com, support.example.com), but one must own the domain and have access to change the CNAME records.
- Limited use of HTML coding. CSS cannot be incorporated in the theme templates; however, inline CSS can be used within the webpage content area.
- No longer serves .html/.htm web pages, like Google Pages did. All static HTML web pages previously hosted on Google Pages can be migrated to Google Sites, but users later attempting to access them (as well as PDF or other migrated files) must download those files, in order to view.
