The Editing Tools

SiteManager provides a full set of tools to simplify the process of editing your pages.  Please be aware that although it looks like a toolbar you would find in Microsoft Word, editing a web page differs from editing a Word document.  For example, if you hit "enter" when editing a web page, you will automatically get double spacing, also known as a paragraph break. To get single spacing you have to hit "shift"+"enter", also known as a line break.

Insert/Edit Table

Use tables when you need to present information that lends itself to a tabular setup.

  1. Place the cursor at the point you need the table to appear.
  2. Click on the Insert/Edit Table button on the toolbar.
    1. Width: Measured either in pixels (200 pixels is the default) or as a percent of the module area you are in.  The width of Hamilton pages is 960 pixels.
    2. Height:  Measured in pixels (can be left empty).
    3. Cell Spacing: sets the amount of space between adjacent layout cells (in pixels).  This value should be less than 5.
    4. Cell padding: sets the amount of space between the content of a layout cell and the cell boundary (in pixels).  This value should be less than 5.
    5. Headers:  bolds the first row, first column, or both.
    6. Border size: specifies the width, in pixels, of the table’s borders.  A border size of zero will produce a borderless table, but you will see gridlines when editing your table.
    7. Alignment:  sets the alignment of the whole table.  Since the default size of the table is 100%, the Center and Right choices will appear to have no effect.
  3. Click on OK.
  4. Once your table is in place, you can right click in a cell or on the table to see the menu of options you can use to edit your table.
