A WebManager web page is managed in sections. These are logical divisions of your content. This paragraph and the bext is saved in a single 'General HTML' section. When you update a section of this type, you use an editor that looks like any common word processor, like MS Word for example.
With the HTML editor, you can create tables, lists, links, override the default font, colours and sizes. There are tools to upload images, documents and media files, and create links to them. The WebManager Editor userguide has the full explaination of all the WYSIWYG editing tools available.
you can also use tables for more advanced interactive tabular content, and allow the visitors to sort. update, enter information and build graphs and charts with the tabular information.
Headings are a great way to break your page content up into bit-sized chunks. People reading a web page like to skim read, and headings give them a familear way to locate the information they want quickly and easily.
heading level '1' is usually reserved for the main page heading, but it is perfectly valid within a separate article that has its own headling levels.
This page is where you manage your databases. If you want to create a NEW Database. Firstly Edit the page you want the database to exist on and then add a database section (where the option is available).

The main table on the page shows each entry as a ROW in the currently selected database. Hidden entries are show as rows in the colour GREY , While visible / live entries are shown in BLUE colours.
This screen will show the current database name at the top and its entries. You can switch to any DataBase by going to 'Select database' pop-down and selecting the new database to show. The last database worked on will be selected automatically. There is also a button to return to the page that 'owns' the currently selected database.
If you are searching for a specific Item, you can use the search options to find any text anywhere in any database entry. Multiple words between double quotes (e.g. "fixed phrase") will be treated as a complete phrase when searching.The next section contains..
The next section shows tools to 'paginate' the lists of entries on this screen, and the drop-down list next to the page navigation buttons sets the number of entries to be shown at a time, and indicates the number of pages required to display ALL the entries.
The last set of numbers are to indicate the total number of entries in the current Database, how many are visible and how many are hidden. (e.g. 25 entries (15 visible and 10 Hidden). Alongside these are butting to Hide or Unhide all the entries.
The last set of options before the table of item rows are checkboxes. There may be several checkboxes depending on the database type and how we have set it up for you. There may be a checkbox for...
The table consists of a Row for each Entry into the database, it may not be displaying all your entries at once. Each ROW has the following:
Headings are extremely useful to help readers of a page navigate quickly to the area they are after.
