Getting Started

The first thing to do is log in!

If you have recently received an email asking you to set your password, you will automatically be logged as soon as the password is set.

If you discover you are not logged in, go to the very bottom right of your website and click 'login/customize'. Then enter your email address and password.

When you are logged in, you will see a blue bar stretching across the top of your screen, and a black bar along the left-hand side of your screen.

Clicking on the three lines in the upper left-hand corner (these three lines are called a “hamburger”) will expand the menu on the left of your screen so that the text descriptions are visible for each of the menu items, in addition to their icon. 

 

Navigating your site

A new website comes with five preset pages:

  • Home - this one is mandatory
  • About Us
  • Events - linked to the Events (calendar) collection
  • News
  • Contact Us - includes an interactive form

The Home page is the basis for navigation and cannot be deleted. You can change the name of the 'Home' page.

All other pages can be deleted or repurposed, renamed, and reorganized.
