Template for Extra Pages on Sub-Sites

What pages do we use for additional information to Nation and Area pages? For example, I have added page to the Asia Pacific site e.g. http://asiapacific.yfci.org/how-we-operate/ but the Contact Form is on each page but use the the page title so… ‘Contact How We Operate YFC’ makes sense on a front page ‘Asia Pacific’ but not extra pages. I could not figure out how to remove the form from the extra pages.

Currently you are using same template “Area with Dropdown” for home page and inner pages, Instead please use “Area Sub-pages with Dropdown” for inner pages.

Misc Notes: Nation Pages

The header image is always the featured image of the particular page. If there is no featured image has been set, then there will be a default image

For header donation widget, you should add it on admin. Please follow the steps
Admin->appearance->widgets->Add “header donation box widget” to “header widget” area.

Nations Template is used for the show the list of countries in Nations page in Main Site. We are currently using “country landing page” template for each country site. So now it is “Country landing Page” and “Country without Dropdown”

“Area abbreviation” only for the area home page if any, but it is not a required field, you can either continue with “Area” template itself.

Login to Admin/Area Site and follow the steps
