Having logged into the website and clicked on the Switch Page Edit On link at the top (or bottom) of the page you will now be in edit mode. The link now says Switch Page Edit Off.

The page will look something like this.

Note that only the content section of the web page is active and the rest (the web page frame) is locked down. The Site Administrator or web designer controls this section.

You now have 6 things you can do that will be covered on the following pages of the training website

  1. Go to the Parent page by clicking on the ‘Parent’ button. This is an easy way to navigate while in edit mode.
  2. Edit the Page Details. These allow for access to information that the Search Engines look for.
  3. Edit the Page contents. The web pages are constructed through using a range of different elements. This means it is possible to construct unique pages with a variety of layouts. The numbers next to each element show their position in the page and the edit buttons above them allow you to edit, move, hide or delete the element.
  4. Add new Text, Images, and other elements into the Page
  5. Add a new page And lastly
  6. You can Preview the page before you make it live. Whenever you make changes to the page a Publish button will appear at the top of the page. Clicking this will bring up a confirmation window. Site Editors have the permissions necessary to publish pages so clicking the OK button will make the page live to the next visitor who clicks on it.

Users who do not have the correct permissions for publishing a page will be able to edit a page and then save the page for the Site Editor to review and publish later.

These features along with others will be covered more fully in the following pages of the training website.
