Task 1b: Moving table of "Contents"

I've placed most table of "Contents" below the main part of each page so that that section appears at the top when it is printed.

You can easily move the table of "Contents" to wherever you wish by 1) simply hovering over its base, 2) clicking "X" to delete it, 3) positioning your cursor where you want to inert the new table  of "Contents", 4) click "Insert", then 5) click "Table of Contents".

Task 1c: Renaming a web page

  1. You need to have made this site YOURS! before you can rename a web page.
  2. Locate the “Edit Icon” in the upper right. It looks like a pencil. Locate the "More" pull down to the right and click it.

Task 1f: Creating a new web page

  1. You need to have made this site YOURS! before you can create a new web page.
  2. Locate the “Edit Icon” in the upper right. It looks like a pencil. Hover your mouse over the icon to the right and it will say “Create a Page”. Click it.  
  3. Name the new page. For this example I will call it "Quotes".
  4. Ignore the “Template” option.
  5. Keep the default location to “Put page at the top level”. You can change it later if you wish.
  6. Click red box “Create” and you will taken to your new page in “Edit” mode..
  7. Edit the title to be whatever you wish. I’d suggest keeping it “Quotes”.
  8. Type anything into the body.
  9. Click “Save”.
  10. Now we need to place your new web page under an appropriate location in the left navigation sidebar.
    1. Click the “More” box to the right of the “Create a page” icon.
    2. Click on “Manage site”.
    3. In the left sidebar click “Site layout”.
    4. Find the line that says “Navigation: Edit | Delete” and click “Edit”.
    5. On the left side below the scrollable box find  “Add Page” and click it.
    6. In the “Select page to be added” read down the alphabetical list of all the web pages and find “Quotes”.  Click on it to highlight it, then click “OK”
    7. Now use the scroll bar in the ”Select pages to show” box and go to the bottom. “Quotes” should appear at the bottom.
    8. To the right of the scroll bar are five arrows and an “X”. Click the “North” arrow to move “Quotes” to a new location. NOTE that you will need to also scroll up to follow the movement of your new page. Use the “East” arrow to indent the new page.
    9. Congratulations!
