  5. Calendar • Lets first look at the Calendar page • Click on calendar on the main menu • On this page you can put up tourney events & area playdays PWGA

  6. Calendar PWGA

If so, this is the place to provide a link to that site PWGA

  10. Event Description Box • Icons in the description box: • There are several icons/buttons in the top row • There are many buttons in the 2nd & 3rd row • Click inside the box • If you hover your mouse over the buttons, they tell you what their purpose is • Also, this is very similar to any word processor that you use e.g. Word • MUST click inside the box to activate all the buttons PWGA

  11. Event Description BoxCont… • Please remember, this is NOT a full word processor, so options may be limited. • Best thing to do is to use your own word processor & then copy & paste into this box • Same principle applies to Excel documents PWGA

  12. Event Description Box – 1st Row • Source – skip – use only if you know how to adjust code • Print Preview – how it will look on screen • Cut – text has to be selected first– Ctrl X • Copy – text has to be selected first – Ctrl C • Paste – Ctrl V • Paste as plain text – no graphics • Paste from word • Print • Undo – Ctrl Z • Redo • Erase – Remove any formatting • Bold, Italic, Underline, Strikeout, Subscript, Superscript PWGA

  13. Event Description Box – 1st Row Cont… • If you are copying and pasting from a word doc, use “paste from word” button to preserve formatting • A dialog box opens up • CLICK inside the box and then press Ctrl V -- OR-- • You can just copy and paste directly from your word doc into the box. If the formatting disappears, use the above method • Does not seem to paste any graphics/pictures PWGA

  14. Event Description Box – 1st Row Cont… • For an excel document,it will not bring in the gridlines. So your best bet maybe to attach that file separately. • Format anyway you like – bold, italic, underline, etc. PWGA

  15. Event Description Box – 2nd RowFormatting • The 2nd row can be used to enhance formatting • Add numbered bullets, regular bullets, increase or decrease indent • Next you have 4 buttons to left justify, center, right justify, or justify left & right together PWGA

  16. Event Description Box – 2nd RowHyperlink • To create a hyperlink: • First, select the text that you want your players to click on that will take them to the webpage • Click on the hyperlink button • This opens up a dialog box PWGA

  17. Event Description Box – 2nd RowHyperlink Cont… • The dialog box has 3 tabs – Link Info, Target, Advanced • Link Info has 2 requirements – Link Type & Protocol/URL: • Link type has 3 options to choose from: • URL – actual address for the site • Anchors on this page – this takes you to different sections on the same page (if the page is too long) • Email – this will link the selected text to an email address that you provide PWGA

  18. Event Description Box – 2nd RowHyperlink Cont… • Protocol is generally http://. But you can use the drop down menu and choose something different (look at the site’s address) • Some secure sites have https:// • Next fill out the exact address e.g. • Best way to avoid mistakes is to copy & paste the URL directly from the site instead of typing it. • Click ok. PWGA

  23. Event Description Box – 2nd RowTable insertion cont… • Height and width of the table • You can use the “Alignment” box to get the table to be on the LHS, RHS, or in the center • Cell spacing gives you space in between the cells • Cell padding – elbow room- gives you space within each cell for the text.
