How to create a page in Mindtouch using a ScreenSteps lesson

This lesson will show you how to create a new page in Mindtouch using a ScreenSteps lesson.

Before beginning this lesson you should have configured a Web Export account for your Mindtouch server.

Export Lesson to Blog

After selecting the Mindtouch account you will see a screen that looks like this. The Create New Page tab will be selected by default.

Unless you have created your own custom template you should select the Mindtouch template (1).

If you want to make the new page a child page of an existing page in Mindtouch you can specify a path in the Link Lesson To field (2). Let's look at how to get the path to a parent page.

Getting a Path to a Page

Getting a Path to a Page

In your browser, navigate to the page that you want to link the page you are creating to. In this example I'm going to link my new page to the Documentation page.

Select the path portion of the url in your browser as demonstrated in this image and copy it to the clipboard.

Now paste the path into the Link Lesson To field (1).

Click the Upload button to begin uploading the lesson (2).

After the lesson has finished uploading click on the Visit button to view the new page in your browser.

The New Page

The New Page

As you can see, the page has been created in Mindtouch and is a child page of the Documentation page.

If later on you change the lesson in ScreenSteps you can update the page in Mindtouch. Refer to our lesson on updating for instructions on how to do that.
