  • Have them edit their page and change the title of the page (which appears in the title bar on the very top of the browser), the menu title (which appears to the left) and url.
  • After saving, click on the page to refresh the url and point out the changes that have been made.
  • Add another page (page1) and then another page sub to page1 (page2).
  • Cut page2 and then click on the root page and paste it as a subpage to the root page.  Point out that Page1 and Page2 are now on the same level.
  • Add an article.  Discuss the title and how to turn that off under the layout tab.

  • Add an image (if available) using the upload button under the description area.

  • Get the WID # of the events calendar and add that to the link list.
