There will be many times when you will need to create a new webpage. Use an old page off the site as a template. For adding the new material to this template, you'll save it as a new page.

Here are the steps you would have taken if you had done this task.

  1. Download the old page off the site into your computer for copying and using as a template.
       
  2. Save it immediately under a new name. If the old one was called page1.htm, the new name might be page2.htm.
       
  3. In this new page, replace the old text the new text. Whatever the copied text looks like, reformat it to match the old page. Save the finished new page.
       
  4. Create a link that takes people to this new page. Download into your computer the parish home page (if you don't  already have it in your computer), so that you can edit it.
       
  5. Add the name of the new page to the parish home page and turn it into a link to the new webpage. Maintain the original design of the home page by adding this link in the same format as what's already there.
       
  6. Upload (FTP) the new page and the revised home page.
