Chapter 2. Editing Your Website
The Edit Site control allows you to select whether or not your site will be public
or private (General Info), what it should look like (which Template to use) and
what the site is all about in addition to declaring who is the Author of the site
and any copyright information etc. The Edit Site area also allows you to change
the way your site looks at ANY time without losing ANY information that was there
before. Simply make your changes and click the Save Settings link up at the top
near the General info section (there is a picture of a little floppy disk next to
it). The All Pages section is where you can input the Header Title, Header Subtitle
and the Header Info (top side text/or picture). These are basic editors on this
page so if you want more advanced editing for the front page you will need to exit
the Admin section and click the Home link from the Top Navigation area. You can
also add text and pictures to the Homepage and Side text area here. To add
pictures using this page you need to browse for the picture then click upload then
click the Save Settings link up top before you leave the Edit Site section.
If you want to Add Widgets or Move any
of the sections that are shown on the Homepage then you will need to exit the Admin
section by clicking any of the other admin controls on the side, then clicking the
Home link at the top navigation menu. This will take you to the customize homepage
screen (minus the customizations controls, this is what your website really looks
like to visitors).
There are 3 main Customize controls on the PAGE ADMINISTRATION tool and they are CUSTOMIZE THIS PAGE, ADD MORE CONTENT
and the all-important RESET CUSTOMIZATIONS (Resets the Homepage modules to default
locations, does NOT delete your data)
Click the PAGE ADMINISTRATION control to manipulate everything on the front page,
ADD MORE CONTENT (Widgets) and move the individual sections as well as edit the
settings for each one. This item can be moved by clicking, holding and dragging it to where you want it, with your mouse.
Click, hold and drag the modules
to where you want them. You will notice the outlines turn Blue when you reach a
spot you can drop it onto.
Clicking the EDIT, which is next to CLOSE (gets rid of that module), lets you adjust
the settings for each module, they all have different settings depending on what
the module is for.
Clicking the HOME PAGE TEXT module edit will let you
edit your front page. You can also use your favorite HTML/CSS or WYSIWYG editor
then drop the CODE for your content right onto the HOME PAGE TEXT editor (you will have to upload
the images used to your site for them to work or host them somewhere else online).To do this, simply click the HTML button on the editor.
The editor used on the full width or CUSTOM page is the same as for the HOME PAGE TEXT .
NOTE: Some but NOT ALL formatting can be retained for your text from an MS
Add Flash videos and content
NOTE: Flash content like games, and videos can be added three different ways:
or SOURCE CODE.
Edit the Home Page Text module the old school way (HTML), let's
see your skills!
Click the PAYPAL button to create a basic sales area (you can use these buttons
anywhere you see the option) - Make some money! Sell something. You have many options
on how your PayPal items are shown, we suggest right clicking on the editor and
making a neat little table to show your stuff and make it easy to describe what
you are selling. Buyers love pictures and descriptions so add them. Be sure that
the email address is the right one for your PayPal account.
NOTE: You may add PayPal button or cart code using this function.
Clicking the ADD MORE CONTENT control will let you add Widgets to your Homepage,
like Calendars, RSS readers, Online Photo Grabbers and much more.
You can select which Widgets you want on your Homepage. You may also click the CATALOG
OF ADDITIONAL WIDGETS and the CATALOG OF WIDGETS YOU CLOSED (click this if you closed
a module or Widget and want it back without hitting the RESET Customizations)
Clicking RESET CUSTOMIZATIONS will reset the whole page back to defaults.
