Each calendar note can have different pages of information, if that makes sense for the note. This leverages the built-in FoundryVTT journal pages that were added in v10. By default, each note will have a single text page.
The collapsible sidebar is where new pages can be added (green add button) or existing pages removed (red trashcan button). The sidebar can also search page names to make it easier to find specific pages if there are many attached to the note.
Every page has a name and type associated with it, then depending on the type selected there will be additional fields to fill out for that page.
Each page can have a name given to it to let players know what that page contains. This is also what is used when search pages in the page collapsible sidebar.
There are 4 different types of pages
The text page type is the same as what notes used to be. You are given a rich text editing field to enter the content for this note.
The image page type allows a player to pick an image to show and provide an optional caption. A preview of the image and caption are shown above the fields.
