Now click Add Page & Edit

While still in the editing widget, click on the page you just created from the menu bar.  Next, click Page Settings to make some additional changes to your new page.

The selected Category should be correct, therefore you shouldn't need to make any changes there.   Next click Select Image, to select the image for the page Widget.

Once you find the desired picture from the Image Gallery, click on Select Image.

You will also have the ability to revise the Page Title, Page Name, have the ability to Hide the Page from the Public, Add Meta Keywords and a Meta description.  Please make sure you click Save at the top after you have made all of your revisions.

Now you have created a new community page..Congratulations!!  You may have noticed that when you go to that page, the results are for all the active listings available and are not specified to any particular area.

To fix this, please click on Select Listings.

A new page will appear to select your search criteria.  For this example we will just tailor the search to listings in Oakville.

Click on City on the right hand side of your screen and then type in the city name you would like to search.  Now click on Add Filter

As you can see the results have dramatically decreased.  Before saving this criteria, we will be adding in another filter, to filter out rentals.

To do this, click on For Sale/For Rent on the right hand side and click on Save and Add Filter.  You can add in as many filters as you would like for your page.  Therefore continue selecting the desired filters from the right hand side.  When you have finished selecting your filters, click Save This Criteria.
