Add/edit Events:

  • From main menu, choose Pages

  • Click the "+" sign to add a new event
  • For an appropriate sized image thumbnail, simply add an image block above your text in the "Content" section -- do not add the image as a thumbnail under the "Options" section as this could affect the layout of the event page itself and the layout of the event list on the homepage

  • From main menu, choose Pages
  • Scroll down to "Not Linked" section and choose "News"
  • Click the "+" sign to add a new news item
  • These items do not need to include thumnail images

 

To add social media links:

  • From main menu, choose Settings
  • Choose "Connected Accounts"
  • Click the "Connect Account" button and sign in to the social media site you'd like to add
  • As you add various accounts, their icons/links should show up in the website footer

 

To edit/add images on Homepage slider:

  • From main menu, choose Pages
  • Select "Home"
  • Scroll to the main content section of the page (white background) and hover until the "Page Content" menu pops up, then select "Edit"
  • In the "Edit" area, you will see a smaller slideshow under the main slideshow, hover over this until you see the "Gallery Block" menu pop up, then select "Edit"
  • To edit the content of a slide:
    • Right click on the slide you'd like to edit
    • Edit the content in the main box (bold text will show up as a large header, regular text will show up as sub-head), an image title is not required
  • To add a new slide:
    • Be sure the background is designed at the correct size (1280 x 853) and logo visibility near the top is considered
    • Click "Upload Image" and upload the new slider image (if you are including text within the image, this is your last step - be aware of how the image will be cropped on upload)
    • If you uploaded a background image only and would like to include editable text, right click the uploaded image and add your text in the main box (again, bold text will show up as a large header, regular text will up as sub-head), an image title is not required
