  • Linking To Your Email

    Posted by Jessica Wilson at 10/29/2009 11:00:00 AM

    *To add your email on your web page you need to link it to the staff directory, this way we can keep it safe from all those malicious programs that like to collect email address and use them in inappropriate ways.  Please do not directly type in your email address to your page.

    How to Link to Staff Directory 

    Go to the Staff Directory, located on the front page of the HCS web page under Quicklinks (left side bar) and type in your name, click Submit  


    Copy the url at the top of the browser (http://......)


    In site manager, go to your page and type in something like My Contact Information or Email Me 


    Highlight My Contact Information, click on the Insert Link button (World with link icon), choose link to another website and paste the url that you copied. 


    Be sure to remove the http:\\ from the beginning of the link, as the schoolwire's editor already adds it.

  • Nesting the Side Links

    Posted by Jessica Wilson at 10/29/2009 11:00:00 AM
    *You have activated your hierarchy list on the home page, which allows you to nest the side links, but they don't show on your page until you finish the steps.  You have to now add each main link and their sub links.  The links that show on the home page are called Peer Links and the links nestled are called Sub Links.
    How To Add Peer Links: Example
    • Go to Hierarchy List  from Team Page
    • Select Add Link
    • Use drop down arrow from Browse From Link URL to choose the first link you want at the top of the list (Teampage)
    • Click Select URL
    • Write the number 1 in Sequence, (2, 3.. order they appear)
    • Click Add Peer Link
    • Repeat Process for rest of peer links  (Teacher 1, Teacher 2 etc.)
    How to Add Sub Links:
    • Click on the Peer Link you would like to nestle other links in  (left side- you just added, now they appear)
    • Click Add Sub Link at bottom.  When you do this the Move To: (just above) will now contain the name of the Peer Link you will be nestling in.
    • Now choose from the drop down arrow in the Browse For, that first peer link (Math Homework)
    • Click Select URL
    • Write the number in for the sequence
    • Click Add Sub Link
    • Repeat
    • Make sure you always repeat the first and second step of this process or the links will not nestle in the correct spot.

  • How to move date modified to bottom of text box.

    Posted by Jessica Wilson at 8/31/2009 9:00:00 PM

    Issue:  Last modified date wraps around the table, instead of showing at the bottom of the page.

    Solution: In site manager - click on the table - click on the Edit table icon - Edit table Properties - Properties -

    Select the Alignment drop down box - Choose the blank one (at the top) instead of Left.


    Last modified date should now appear under the table.
