7.6 Specifying a Page Contact

Use the page contact attribute to specify the person to contact regarding issues concerning a particular page. The page contact might be the page's designer, the primary content contributor, or even the page group administrator. Who you select is up to you.

Consider selecting a person who has sufficient privileges on the page to adjust access controls, revise templates, and add, remove, or hide page content. Typically, this is a person with the page privilege Manage on the relevant page.

Specify a page contact for Standard pages and custom pages that are based on the Standard page type.

Using Portal Smart Links, you can display the relevant page contact on any page you choose. You can place the same Portal Smart Link on five different pages with five different contacts, and the Smart Link will always display the correct contact for each page.

This section explains how to specify a page contact. For information on how to display the page contact, see Section 13.6.6, "Adding a Portal Smart Link Item".
