Web Pages


Adding Information and Uploading Files to Your Site

Every GroveSite page type can have web page items. The "Web Page" type just means that there are only web page items on the page and not other item types like table records or discussion postings. Use the instructions below to add and update web page items.

Turn on Edit

** You must be a Moderator or Administrator **

Information - text, images, files or links - is added to website pages in 'items.' For any of these types of information, click on the page that you wish to update. When the page appears, click the Turn on edit button in the Menu Bar. Editing symbols will appear on the screen.

New Item

Click [new item] at the top of the page area. The Add New Item form appears. Using the Add Item form, follow the instructions below to:

  1. Add text
  2. Display an image
  3. Attach a file
  4. Add a list
  5. Add a link
  6. Re-order information

1. Add text

Use these fields on the Add Item form

Picture Add Item

  • Heading: Enter text for a heading, or leave the field blank if you wish.

  • Item type: Select text/picture item.

  • Item text: Enter text, as desired. Just click on the wysiwyg HTML editor, enter your text as you want it to look and save. The editor will build the HTML for you.

  • Add Item Below: Position the new item by clicking on the item that you want to precede this one.

  • Item format: You can make the headings and subheading fonts slightly bigger or smaller for this item.

  • Sub navigation: This field is usually left blank. If you enter many items on a single page, you may wish to break the page into sections, and list those sections on the Site Navigation Area. To do this, enter a short phrase to be listed under the page name in the Site Navigation Area for the item you are adding.

  • Section break: If you entered text in the Sub Navigation field, above, you also have the option of inserting a 'page break' before this item. This is useful for pages with many items. When users click on a page that has sections, the section they see will start at the top of the page area.
