How do I edit the contents of a currently published page?

You must login with admin authority to maintain pages and their many attributes.

Note that understanding how pages work can be difficult at first.    Please holler if questions.   618-531-4052 (Marty Chrenka)

Method 1

Navigate to the page you want to change using the normal publicly available Website.    i.e.  Dont use the admin panel.

At the very top of the screen you will see an “Edit Page” link – click this link.

You will see many attributes which can be changed on this page.

In the main editor Window, there are tabs labeled “Visual” and “Text” at the top right corner.    Use the “Visual” tab for all editing.

Caution:   Some of the contents in the editor window may be internal codes which your CMS (Content Management System) requires to render the page appropriately.    Do not adjust anything you are not familiar with as will break the page and possible the site.

An example of this is the main home page.    You may see something like:

[servicex column=”3″ title=”Highway / Road / Bridge” image=”/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/highway.png” buttontitle=”LEARN MORE” background=”” href=”/services/highway-road-bridge/”]Miles of infrastructure in the state of Illinois have been built, improved, and reconstructed by Keller Construction…[/servicex]

You are safe to edit the textual content “Miles of infrastructure in the state of Illinois have been built, improved, and reconstructed by Keller Construction” but be careful to leave the other attributes alone.

Other pages such as “Highway / Road / Bridge” will be more intuitively obvious on what content can be safely edited to your liking.

Method 2

You can also click on the pages link from the admin panel to see a list of pages.    Note that not every page in this list is actually part of your publicly visible site.   It may be easier to use method number 1 above to guarantee you are editing the correct page.

Do not edit the Page attributes on the right side of the screen.

You can optionally set or edit the “Featured Image” in the “Featured Image” Panel on the right.

Be certain to review the way the page looks using the preview button and on the actual site after edits are made.

NOTE:   Every version of a page is saved in case you need to revert to a previous version.

On the page editor, scroll down to see a list of all version of the page.     Click on any version and hit the “Restore this Version” button to revert to a previous version.
