Creating a new Silva folder

It is good practice to create Silva folders rather than Silva documents.

This is, because you can add objects to a Folder e.g. a separate right-hand column, a different menu etc. which you can't do if you have only a Silva document.

  1. Navigate to the section of the site where you want to add the new folder
  2. Ensure you're viewing the contents of this section
  3. Click on the drop-down menu under 'Select', and select Silva Folder.
  4. Give the folder an id and title - the id must be in lower case, and use hyphens, not underscore.
  5. Click Save, or Save and Enter to start working inside this new folder.


  1. By default, you will automatically be given an index page (Silva document) when you create a folder.
  2. If you don't want an index page, e.g. if you would like a folder for storing files or images, choose none before you click on Save.
