Create an About page

An About page can be used to share program information with your program's users. Logged in users will see this content block in the left navigation of their Manage, Enter, or Judge workspaces.  Multiple About pages can be configured to fit your needs with varying role visibility settings configured.

For example, a general page with information about your organisation can be made visible to all users while a judge-specific About page can be shown to only those accessing the program with the judge role.

Note: public About pages will also be available on your program's login page.
