  3. Page (black box in the top picture): this is where all informatie exists in the shape of text, pictures and macro's. In addition, a pages can have labels associated with it (see below). There is a read-only and a edit mode for a page:
    1. In the read-only mode, pages are like normal web pages. For navigation go to: MODS navigation. If you have the correct user rights, you can also add labels to a page in the read-only mode. Furhtermore, the sub topbar (magenta box in the top picture) provides optional actions for this pages (depending on user rights). Selecting the three dots provides an additional advanced menu.
      1. Attachments: each page can contain attachments. And there is version management on these attachments (so you can download, make changes and upload, and versions are managed). Macro's can present these attachements on the page. You can find the attachment options on the top richt of the sub topbar (magenta box in the top picture) by selecting the three dots.
      2. Labels are a convenient way to associate pages with comparable topics. This can help with navigation (MODS navigation) and, for instance, for generating filtered lists of pages on specific topics (labels). Click "Labels" at the bottom right of a page to add or edit the labels. Please use existing labels as much as possible and only add new labels when this is really relevant. Digital Services (together with other MARIN enthusiasts) is trying to use the labels to structure information for relevant products, services and domains. Please feel free to use these labels as weel. For our overview: MODS Labels en Space Categorieën. For all existing labels: All labels in MODS.

      1. Text: all text can be edited through a "What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG)" editor (although it is html under water). In addition you can use macro's to do and automate special things
      2. Images: you can add images to a page by drag and drop and selecting the insert image option in the edit menu. You are able to select a presentation format of the original images (when you click on the image as reader, the bigger image is presented). Moreover, you can use images in combination with links to other content.
      3. Links: these are references to other content in- and outside MODS. MODS tries to manage these links, this means that changes to page names will be corrected throughout the other pages that contain a link to the pages. Moreover, MODS will provide suggestions to the new page when old links are used. Please note that we have discover issue inside add-ins (special cases).
      4. Macro's: are a smart way to create dynamic content on your pages, such as content menu's for a page, overview of child pages, overview of related documents based on labels, etc.
