Special Notes 

Pictures - In order to use a picture from your harddrive, you must copy and paste the picture into page you are editing. You just use Full HTML mode desribed in the section on tables below. If a picture is available online, you can use the URL to place it on your page.  Copy and Paste for pictures does not work in the Google Chrome browser.

Tables – In order to insert a table your page must be in Full HTML mode.  You can change this by scrolling down to the Text Format bock and choosing Full HTML

Side Bar Blocks - You will notice that you do not have access to the side bar blocks.  If you need to have a block edited, or other update that required advanced coding, please contact Shelly.
