Editing Pages

If you log in using the Editor Login footer link, you’ll be returned to the last site page you visited. The only difference will be the CMS toolbar at the top of the page.


To edit the static text and static images on one of your pages, just go to that page. If you’re authorized to edit the page, you’ll see an Edit Page link at top left; click that to begin page editing! When done Save and Publish (top right).


All dynamic content is created and managed in the Dashboard (blue button on top right). This will be where you create, edit and manage events, news stories, pages, forms, profiles, blurbs, images and galleries.

Following these guidelines will ensure information presented on the website is accessible to all users, whether they’re using screen-readers to listen to content, or simply reading the page.
