  1. Place your cursor at the beginning of the text and hold down the left mouse button as you guide the cursor over the desired text. The text will be highlighted with a background color, usually blue. (If you find that the information you desire to copy does not highlight, this means the material cannot be copied.)

There are 16 possible pages for the administrator to fill with content. All those in current use will be the first titles listed in the left-hand navigation links column of the website.

To view any of these pages, click on the link of your choice and your desired page will open. You will be able to scroll through the entire content by using the blue sliding bar on the right-hand side of the page.

On the left side of the web site are links to the things you can do when you are logged into the site. An explanation of each follows:


This feature lists all the emails you have received (IN BOX) as well as those you have sent (OUT BOX) through this web site. Your messages will remain in their respective boxes until you delete them.

A KEY at the top of both the IN BOX and OUT BOX shows symbols representing the status of an email. You will find one of these symbols to the left of each email listed.

Each listed email shows: (1). A box to check, (2). Its status; (3). Either who sent it to you (IN BOX) or who you sent it to (OUT BOX), (4). Subject and date of email, and (5). A red "X."

In both the IN BOX and OUT BOX settings, clicking on sender's name brings up that person's profile page and clicking on the subject brings up the actual email.

Clicking inside the box on the far left or on the red "X" on the far right, will turn the background red. This means that the email can be deleted by choosing the tab at the bottom of the page that says DELETE CHECKED THREAD.


Choosing this feature will allow you to view all of the contact information you entered into your contact information page. You can change your contact info anytime it is necessary.

Be sure to click the SAVE CHANGES tab at the bottom of the page when you have finished.
