Open Page Editing Instructions

Editing Instructions

Make your changes using the editing box below. When you are done, click the "Submit Changes" button below (scroll down if you can't see it). You can then go on to edit other pages, or click the "Log Out" button at the top-right of the page. You can also choose to "Exit Editing Mode" to cancel and not save any changes.

Important note: If you are copy/pasting from Microsoft Word, or any other word processor, these can often introduce extra formatting that will cause undesirable results.

To remove the extra formatting:

  1. Select (highlight) all the text you pasted inside the main (large) box.
  2. Press the "Remove Formatting" button on the editor. It is the last button, on the far right, that looks like a "Tx".

This will remove any extra (and unwanted) formatting from word processors.

NOTE: The formatting of text may appear differently here than it does on the finished page. This is for editing only.

Adding Images

To add an image, click the Insert Images button Insert Image Button. From there, click the "Upload" button Upload Button on the far right.

This will open up the "Responsive File Manager". From here, you can choose a photo you uploaded previously, or upload a new one.

To upload a new photo, click the "Upload" button on the far left. A new screen will appear. If you click on the white box, you can choose a file to upload. Alternatively, you can drag files onto the white box (as it instructs you to do), and upload them that way.

Click "Return to Files List", and then click on your image thumbnail to insert.

Note: If your image shows an "X" just after you uploaded it, this indicates an error. Move your mouse over the X to see the error. Most likely, the image you are trying to upload is too large. You MUST resize an image in an image editor first before uploading. The File Manager will not let you upload a large image, and the Web Editor will not let you resize it. This is by design. Images should always be resized and optimized before uploading to a Web site.

Be sure to properly compress files such as JPEGs before uploading. GIF files should only be used for simple graphics, not photos.

Once you are done, the image should automatically have been placed into the editor at your cursor position (it will go to the top of the page if you have not yet clicked in the document). You won't be able to resize the image after placing it, because you will lose image quality. If you need a larger image, re-edit the image on your computer and upload again.

Finally, select the image and then click the "Image" button (next to the "chain-link" icon), and put a short description of the image next to "Image Description". This is necessary for proper accessibility.

If you need to upload multiple images, or just upload an image for later use, click the "Insert File" button Insert File, and upload the same as before. You can drag multiple files into the File Manager from your File Explorer/Finder window.

Selecting Images

To select an image in order to change its format, or to move it, use your mouse to swipe across the image. It will turn blue once selected.

Inserting Video

To insert a video: From your video sharing site (ie: YouTube), open the video you want to add. Click "Share", then "Embed". Copy the code. It should start with "<iframe>.

Back in the page editor, click the "Media" button Insert Media. From there, click "Embed" and paste in your copied <iframe;> code. Click "OK". Note: The video will not be visible in the editor until you save your changes and view the page normally.
