How To Add Pages/Documents

Document Actions
Step-by-Step instructions for adding documents/pages to this site.

To add a new text-document (html, xml, txt, etc):

  1. Log in as yourself
  2. Click "Groups" from the left-hand column. If you want to make a personal document, click "Members" instead.
  3. Select the folder that you are interested in ("PI Group" or "YourName Home" for example).
  4. Select the 'contents' tab
  5. From the drop-down list in the center column, select "Document"
  6. Click "Add new Item"
  7. Fill in the Short-Name and Title (description is optional).
  8. Fill in the body text by typing, copy/paste or upload a file.
    If you are using 'upload contents' option, do so before editing the 'Body Text' region as it replaces any contents there. You may upload any text-format document.
  9. Click 'Save'

  3. Click "Add new Item"
  4. Title (description is optional)
  5. Click the browse button and select the file you wish to upload
  6. Click 'Save'
