WYSiWYG

What is WYSiWYG? W.Y.S.i.W.Y.G. stands for What You See is What You Get. This means that the content you enter (including text and pictures) will appear on your web site in the same format that you enter in into the WYSiWYG editor.

Requirements: The WYSiWYG editor will only work on systems that meet the following requirements. This is due to functions that are not available to some browsers. Note, this does not mean you can not use the system if your computer does not meet the requirements for WYSiWYG. We have provided an alternative method for editing your site should you be using a different browser or platform (see Mac/Netscape help).
The WYSiWYG editor will work only on systems that meet these specifications:

Windows 95, 98, XP, NT, ME and Internet Explorer 5, 5.5, 6 or better

How does it work? The WYSiWYG editor translates all the text and pictures you enter in to html code which we store for use on your site.
The editor itself works much like a traditional word processor, such as Microsoft Word, except it operates within your browser window. You simply enter (or paste) text into the window and use the tool bar to format the text. This tool bar allows you to change formatting by making it bold, underlined, or italic; change the colour of your text, size and type face.

Much like the rest of the site, details of each button become available in small popup windows when you hover your mouse above them for 2 seconds or more.

Please make sure you click the SAVE button every time you make an edit!

Cut & Paste: As suggested elsewhere in the help section it is recommended that you plan you site before coming to create it. You could do this on your computer's built in word processor for example.
Once you have completed your site content you can select all the text you have written offline (in the word processor) and choose 'Copy' from the 'Edit' menu. Then log on to the editing tool and open the WYSiWYG editor for the page you wish to create and choose 'Paste' from the edit menu. You should find that your text then appears in the WYSiWYG text box.
NOTE: You may need to make some final formatting changes for your web site.
