How to change existing content
Before trying to create new Articles and Menu Links, first practise using the Content Editor to edit existing exemplar website content.
More about how to use the Content Editor at the following link.
First sign in.
Select the Sign in Panel to sign into the Front End.
Or the Sign in Menu Link from the Bottom Menu.
By default, the Sign in panel is visible at the foot of every screen in a WYNCHCO Website Design.
After signing in, look for the following button.
Click an Edit Article button to begin editing an Article.
Note: if you cannot see the above button after signing in then you have not signed in as a user with special permissions.
Check your user status in the User screen of the website Dashboard.
Select the Articles button from the Site panel in your website's Dashboard.
Once you are comfortable editing exemplar Articles, you are ready to begin editing existing and creating new content.
