    Are publishers supposed to have the ability to add the Feature Column when creating a page?

    Hi Caryn,

    Publishers do not have the ability to add Feature Columns to a page. If you find that your publishers are able to add feature columns, please review your Group Permissions (https://www.civicengage.civicplus.help/hc/en-us/articles/360000311973-Edit-an-Existing-Group) and/or individual User Permissions (https://www.civicengage.civicplus.help/hc/en-us/articles/115004877914-Modify-a-User).

    Thank you,

    Your Help Center Team

    This says/shows nothing at all about adding a page from *within* the page structure. It's more often the case that someone will be wanting to add a page *outside* the scope of the MegaMenu, deeper into the structure. This article also needs to mention that only admins can adjust the *ordering* of where the new page will appear in the menu once it is created.
