Article Editing Tips

Tip 1

The web site will occasionally time out – this is a useful security measure.  This means however, that if you have been editing an article for a very long time, then save it, you can be logged out and the save will fail.  As this is frustrating, we suggest that you either save the article text on the clipboard before you hit the save button, or that you compose your articles off-line, then copy them in, when complete.

Tip 2

If you compose your articles off-line and then copy them in, remember that the web does not understand Microsoft Word formatting commands. If you copy and paste directly from Word the result can be horrible! To get around this, first copy your article from Word into a text-only editor like Notepad (free on almost all PCs), then copy from Notepad onto the web site. The Word formatting will have disappeared and you will be able to format appropriately for the web in the text editor.
