Getting Started

Once you have been given permission to use the PageEdit web tool you will be able to login and edit the pages in the site that you have been granted access to edit. To get permission you must request that your director or department chair email Ted Johnson, tedmund.johnson@mnsu.edu, to grant you access.

On the page you want to edit, click the "Page" link near the bottom right of the page

Once you are in you will be able to start editing pages using the PageEdit tool. The program works similarly to a word processor with having a blank slate you can type into, and a toolbar that gives you ways to format and enhance the content. Here is a full explanation of the toolbar.

Editing Multiple Pages
