Why does the system require everything to be linked to a reservation page? How does this work?

By requiring all sections of the system to be linked to a reservation page this makes it very easy to add additional reservation pages as you do not need to duplicate information already entered elsewhere in the system. Also this allows you to organize sections of the system by category. For example, all your email templates and reservation messages are stored in one place.
