How do I edit page content and use the content editor?

You edit page content in SiteBuilder via a web browser – there's no need for additional software.
  1. Ensure you are signed in to
  2. Browse to the page you want to edit.
  3. In the utility links at the top of the screen, select Edit. You need edit permissions to do so, otherwise you won't see the Edit link – contact the page owner for access.
  4. Choose Edit centre content or Edit right content from the drop-down menu, depending on which section of the page you want to edit.
  5. The content editor appears with a toolbar at the top. Start typing in the body of the page (the area beneath the page heading):

    Visual content editor

  6. When you've finished editing your page, select the Preview button in the toolbar. A preview of the page containing your changes appears in a pop-up.
  7. Close the preview window and make any further edits, as necessary.
  8. When you're happy with your page, select the Publish button in the toolbar.

    In SiteBuilder, it's not possible to save draft edits and continue working on them later. When you select the Publish button, your changes go live immediately.
