Editing a Page


The container for items on an AGOL (ArcGIS Online) Hub Page is the row. Community members editing content can add a variety of text and media to a row.

Basic Row Components

A community member can add these components to a row.

Text Box

The text box allows a community member to add text to a row.

Text boxes also allow a community member to write HTML to create content. Javascript as well as the use of the script tag is not allowed.


The spacer component allows a community member to expand a row without content. The spacer will inherit the customizations of its row and has no inherent properties to customize except for its height in pixels.


A community member may add images to a page. An image can be linked to a URL that may be configured to open in the same tab or a new tab as well as have alt-text for accessibility and a readable caption.

New Pages

Sub-pages may also be created for a hub and are functionally equivalent to the main pages in terms of publicity and editing.

Pages must be given a name and are assigned a link that is derived from the name. The page name and link may be later edited.
