Full Page 

A full page allows you to create a single page of text, html, images, hyperlinks and documents. The three icons at the top of the screen allow you to edit the content of the page, delete the page, or add/remove images and files.

Creating a New Full Page

  1. When you edit a Full Page section from the Content Manager you will see blank fields for adding a new entry. Within the Article Text box, insert the information (text, tables, hyperlinks and images to create your page). Format your text using the ‘What You See Is What You Get’ (WYSIWYG) editor. For example, you can create bold, underlined, or italic text, modify font size, style and colour, or add bullet lists.
  2. When finished, click Save. If you want to add images and photos separately, choose which side you want your image to appear under ‘Image on Which Side’ and click on Insert File/Images from Gallery. The next section explains how to add images and files.
