The list of available static pages and their intended purpose is:

Contact us page

https://yourLMSdomain.com/contact

A page with the information to get in touch with the teams behind the site’s operation. Please note that Open edX does not include a solution for the contact form. We advise clients that wish to have this feature to use a professional and embeddable solution for contact forms or to provide us with an external URL so that we can redirect the incoming traffic to this page.

6.1. Adding content to the static pages

From the eduNEXT management console, you can set the title and HTML content for each of the static pages. All you need to do is to fill in the appropriate fields and hit SAVE.

6.2. Adding redirections to the static pages

Alternatively, when you don’t need to use the provided static pages, or when you have the same content published somewhere else, for example in your website, you can configure redirections to each of the pages so that any incoming traffic to the URL that corresponds to the static page will land in the right place.

Note

When both the HTML content and redirection are set for a particular static page, the redirection will take precedence, so the HTML content will never be reached.
