To start building a structured Web Module for your application, we begin with clicking the + New group button. You'll see a pane slide in with a few options to choose from. Read on for everything you need to know about these options.


The name is only visible to you and your colleagues, so this is a good way for you to make groups to organize and quickly find your pages. 
For example: if you have a dashboard with multiple pages as well as a webshop with multiple pages, you can create one group for the dashboard webpages and one for the webshop webpages.


With the path field it is possible to set a pathname addition to your webpages. 
For example: If you set the path to: order, all the pages made inside this folder will contain the addition /order/ in the URL, if you create a page in this group the URL will appear as: /orders/ new-page, If you leave the page option field blank, there won't be any addition to the pages, but you can still use the groups features.

Authentication profile

With this option you can select which authentication profile you want to use on all the pages inside the group. More about Authentication profiles.

Enable page caching

The enable page caching function lets you define whether the page can be cached locally on the visitors' device. Caching a page results in faster loading times when a user revisits that page. When a page is cached the browser asks the website if there's a newer version than the cached version available. If so, the page is loaded from the hosting server. If not, the page is loaded from the user's local cache memory. This can speed up loading times, but will have no effect if your page changes regularly.

Important note: If you are still developing a page, we recommend that you turn this option off. Sometimes caching can be tricky while developing in a team.

Enable debug logging

If you activate debug logging on your page, a log record will be created every time the page is visited. You also can turn on the debug logging for a page's Action in page settings (open the action and click edit) in order to see exactly what the action does. The debug logging feature in the page settings is only for the page, not for its action.
These are all of your options when creating a group. If you have created a group and want to change one of the options above, you can do so by clicking on the cogwheel icon behind the group name.

Now it's time to fill up those groups will all our webpages, ready to learn how? Read all about it in our HowTo to find out.
