Adding Nodes to a Page Hierarchy

The following example shows how to create a page hierarchy node with simple navigation to content pages. Although the node does not have a content page associated with it, it does have a URL Key which can be referenced elsewhere in your site.

For example, you can create a node called “Press Releases” with navigation to individual press releases. Then, include the link on your “About Us” page. Or how about a node with links to articles from back issues of your newsletter?
