Host
Our host is BlueHost. We pay Annually $71.40 ($5.95/month). Our hosting will expire on Date
here

Once you log in, it is a good idea to right click on the title of your website next to the W at the top
of the screen and choose open in a new tab. This will give you a view of the website so when you
make changes in the editor, or WordPress, you can refresh the other tab to see if the changes you
made are active.
Making Mistakes
As soon as you make changes and click update, the changes are live. If you look at the page and
things are messed up, don’t panic. Go back to the page you were editing and at the bottom of the
page you will see “Revisions”. You can restore to a previous version by the options below. If you
don’t see this, click screen options at the top of any page and tick off Revisions.
Email
All email is set up in the BlueHost Control Panel. Log in (instructions at top of document) go to
Mail. You can set up new email accounts under Mail
Forwards: you can set up email addresses that just forward to other email addresses. You can
add new forwards or delete forwards under forwards

Retrieving Email
There are 3 ways to get mail – Employees can do ALL THREE or just one:
1) Log into webmail at mail.thetrainingfloor.org
2) Set it up in Outlook or Outlook Express or Mail
3) Set it up on your phone
Setting up Email on phones or computer
Emplyees should use IMAP if possible! This will keep their inbox and the one on the server all
synched up together. POP will leave a copy of all messages on the server, which can build up into
the thousands. Employees can set up email on their phone in addition to in their Outlook, etc.
Give each employee his or her address (multiple people can check one account – they should work
it.
Mail Server Username: [email protected]
Mail Server Password: password
Incoming Mail Server: mail.thetrainingfloor.org IMAP: port 143, POP: port 110
Outgoing Mail Server: mail.thetrainingfloor.org(server requires authentication) port 26

To edit text on an existing page, login to WORDPRESS (instructions above)
EITHER
Browse to that page using your browser
Click Edit Page at the top of the page in the dark menu bar
- OR Click on Pages on the upper left menu
Click on the name of the page you wish to edit.
Make sure you are on the Visual Tab, Not HTML You can edit on either one. The visual
tab is usually easier to read because the HTML tab has more coding. I suggest you always
use the Visual Tab unless there is something messed up.
Make changes to the text. ***Note: The font here will not show the font that is shown on
the website.
Above the text box, you will see an icon at the very end and when you mouseover it, you
will see the tool tip “kitchen sink”. If you click on that you will have all your text editing
options.

Photos on Pages (single)
It is a good idea to crop the photos you are using to the correct size first using Photoshop or
another graphics editor. All images for the web should be 72dpi.
Sometimes in cropping software if you hold down the shift key when you go to draw the cropping
area it will make a perfect square for you if you would like a square photo.
How to add photos to pages and posts
•
•
•
•
•
•
Browse to the page you would like to add the photos to after logging in (see instructions
above)
Make sure you are on the Visual Tab, Not HTML. You can edit on either one. The visual
tab is usually easier to read because the HTML tab has more coding. I suggest you always
use the Visual Tab unless there is something messed up.
To change the photo, have the photo ready and cropped on your computer. Just
underneath the title of the page, you will see Upload/Insert and then an icon of a camera
and music. Click on that icon.
Up will pop a window. Choose Select Files
Find the file and click Open
Click Upload Files

Sidebars
Sidebars are any of the info on the left or right side of the pages. They can contain menus, ads,
upcoming events, text, links, etc.
Each page either has content that you edit under Pages, or Sidebars. The content in the sidebars
is located under Appearance > Widgets Some pages have sidebars and some don’t.
It is literally just drop and drag. When you go to appearance > widgets you will see the current
sidebars that we are using in the way right column. If you open one up you can see the widgets
that are being displayed in a sidebar. You can change the order by dropping and dragging. You
can add more by dragging over a widget from the available Widgets to a particular sidebar. Each
widget has it’s own setting you set in the widget.
