How to login as an admin

To login to the website as an admin go to

You will get to a rather scary looking page - with a menu on the right.  Don't worry - most of this you won't have to touch and some of the menu items won't even appear for you

How to edit a page

First go to the page

To do that click on the top where it says "My sites" and go to the NYSVMS site.

Navigate to the page you want

Then go into edit mode

Just click on Enable Visual Builder

The page is composed of various blocks, find the block you want to edit and start typing. Or click on it and edit it that way.

Generally you want to click on the gear symbol on a black box to edit text or images. The green box is the container - so that would enable you to add more rows

Note: Halmyre have given us a style guide and guide to editing - and that will be in another section for if you add pages etc:
