A rich text content area allows you to enter headings, sub-headings, paragraphs, images, and links to documents and web pages. Many web pages with WebYep only have a rich text area for you to work with.
After you click on the rich text icon, the editing window opens.
Here is a closer look at the formatting icons.
Now for a little tour of the menu.
The field at the top that says, Paragraph, is the Format menu. You should only use three of the formats:
Put your cursor on the line that you want to format and select the desired format. Headings automatically space themselves apart, so if you want a heading to span multiple lines without the space between the lines, hold down CTRL and press Enter at the end of the line.
If you are capturing text from a Word document, click the Paste from Word icon (2nd row, 5th from the left) to insert the text. Here's how:
If you copied text from an email or other document, click the Paste as Plain Text icon (2nd row, 4th from the left) to insert the text. Here's how:
To add a link to a web page, follow these steps:
If you have a poster or other document that you want people to be able to print or download from the web page, send the document to the Webmaster who will upload it to the website. The Webmaster will send you the URL for the file. Follow the instructions above for linking to the URL.
If you would like an image on your page to enhance the visual appeal or to illustrate your message, contact the Webmaster. If you have a royalty free image that we may use without copyright infringement, email it to the Webmaster. Otherwise, the Webmaster can provide an image for your message.
Do not enter EUUC email addresses or personal email addresses of our members or staff. Any email address that is visible on the page or coded into a link are available to spambots who will capture and sell the addresses.
If you want to link to an EUUC email address, enter your content and ask the Webmaster to add a safe link.
If you want to link to an email address for an outside organization, you may do so if the email address is published and visible on that organization's website or if you get permission from the recipient.
Use bulleted lists (icon on the 2nd row near the middle) when the list elements do not have a particular order. Use numbered lists only when you need to show an order, such as for a procedure.
Click the Symbols icon (a Greek omega which looks like a horseshoe) to get © or another special symbol.
Do not change the text styles through the Edit CSS Style menu and do not change the font color, use underlining, or highlight text. We want your page to have the look and feel of the other website pages.
Often the date, time, and location details in a Heading 4 require more than one line. But, if you hit Enter at the end of the first line, your cursor skips a line. To move your cursor to the next line without skipping, put your cursor at the end of a line and hold down Control while pressing Enter.
Grab attention with powerful words rather than bold colors or different fonts. Emphasize a word with Italics, not boldface, and restrict the emphasis to one word or phrase per page.
Use Heading 3 and Heading 4 as appropriate, because they are designed to be visually bold and they help search engines find your content.
Italics should be used for titles of published works, like books and films.
Do not close the padlock until you have saved your content. When you click Save at the bottom of the content window, your content is saved to the webpage.
If you do not see the save button at the bottom of the content window, it is probably because you need to scroll to the bottom of the WebYep window. This can be confusing because the box where you enter the content is inside the WebYep box, and both boxes can have scroll bars.
Use the outer scroll bar to get to the bottom of the WebYep window which is where you will find the Save button.
If you have questions about using WebYep, or if you would like additional training for yourself or your committee, contact the Webmaster.
