General pages are used for everything from information about your organization to privacy policies, customer service and contact information. This is the foundation for our software and should be your starting point in developing your new website.
For a walk through of the general pages watch the video below:

Beginning with the tree structure, each page listed under the “home” page is considered a “top level” or “parent” page. These pages form the beginning of your “navigational structure” and should be carefully thought out. By clicking on one of these pages (click on the page title itself, not on the [+] symbol, as this symbol is used to expand your tree and to show any pages which fit beneath this page in your outline format).
1. Select Add Page at the bottom and under the Home parent page, if you wish for it to be a parent page.
2. Select a page of your choice and click on the heading name then click Add Page if you wish for the page to be a child page.
General pages are edited in much the same fashion as with Microsoft Word. By running your cursor over the toolbar in your admin, you'll see that you can cut and paste, find a specific word on the page, use Bold, Italic or Strike-Through, add subscript or superscript, numbers or bullet points, indents or left and right justification. You will also be able to add links to internal or external pages, images, tables, or horizontal lines.
You may choose to cut and paste text from a Word document or type directly in your browser. If you would like to apply a style to a heading on your page, simply highlight the text you would like to emphasize and click on the drop-down Format box. You will see several different formatting options. By clicking on the different heading options, you will be able to try different styles until you find the one that suits you.
If you prefer to edit the HTML on your pages directly, click on the Source icon in the upper left hand corner of your toolbar.
1. Simply click on the page you wish to edit, make your changes and click Save Page.
1. The View This Page option allows you to view the currently published version of the page you are editing.
2. Please remember to Save Page before you click on View This Page or else new edits will not be recorded.
The Toolbar is the area in FCKeditor where you can activate most of the editor features. Each button in the toolbar access a different function. There are simple functions for basic text formatting and more advanced features like creation of links and tables.
1. To use the buttons in the toolbar you must move your mouse pointer over the button(s). The button will highlight and a message with the information about the button function will appear.
2. Click on the button to execute its function. With more experience you will have full control over all FCKeditor features and you won't have to read the discription of the buttons.
If you would like to edit the HTML on your page, click on the Source icon in the upper left hand corner of your toolbar. For some good beginner’s HTML tutorials, we suggest you visit Yahoo's Beginner's HTML site.

If you are copying content from another program into this web editor, the formats, links, images, alignment, etc. will not be transferred over. You will have to add those items from within the web editor (unless you are coping HTML into the Source section).
