TOPIC: HTML block edit screen

HTML block edit screen 5 years 6 months ago #1

Novice's question: how do I edit an HTML block?

I logged in as an Administrator, selected My Page/Administration, then Users/Set the default blocks, and moved an HTML Block to the Main Section of the default page. When I went to the site as an unregistered guest, there was no sign of the HTML block, presumably 'cause there's nothing in it.

I can't find the edit screen, for this 'default page' HTML block, on the Administration page (or anywhere else). Can someone direct me how to access the edit screen?

Hi ttspencer,

I logged in as an Administrator, selected My Page/Administration, then Users/Set the default blocks, and moved an HTML Block to the Main Section of the default page. When I went to the site as an unregistered guest, there was no sign of the HTML block, presumably 'cause there's nothing in it.

I can't find the edit screen, for this 'default page' HTML block, on the Administration page (or anywhere else). Can someone direct me how to access the edit screen?

As a visitor you will see the HOME page. What you did was setting the page MY PAGE !

Don't go on Administration section.

1- Log in as administrator (ONLY the LOGGED IN admin can change the blocks on the home page)
2- Go to HOME page NOT the page My page and NOT on Administration page
How to do that ? In the horizontal top Menu you should see and icon named « Home Page », click on it.

3- Go down to the bottom of HOME page until you see a sentence "Change the blocks on this page" (it is located in the middle of the page in the footer)
4- Click on this link "Change the blocks on this page". That is where you change and set the blocks of the HOME page.
