Site Content Tip For Beginners

Last Update: February 13, 2018

Hey everyone!

As I go through the Boot camp again I have noticed many questions in chat about not being able to edit your post or page once you have published it through Site Content.

This is correct and nothing is broken!

Once you publish it you must make any changes to the article or post directly through your website's back office.

If you need help on this let me know and I will create a tutorial on it if needed.

Thank you Shawn, I have not long really started using the site content feature, any chances I made were in the back office, this is good for members to know

Yeah, I've seen that question come up many times, also. If you created it, you can revise it.

There are two things that get me about site content you can not add media there. In the back office i would like to see a spell check. Just saying.

True. I write in Site Content but don't publish there. I copy/paste to the site editor, tweak everything and publish when ready. I don't use images in there because they show up as big as billboards. Still it does serve a purpose.

I am interested in trying it out.

I get totally confused by images. They are great to find and pull up within Site Content, but you have no any idea how big they are going to be and whether they'll look the same on your website once you have published the page...

I have training on using and SEOing images if you would like it.

Many thanks Shawn......yes, if you feel up to doing it. I for one, would devour it. Need all of the technical side help I can get. And I have been wondering too, how editing can be accomplished, post publishing.
