7. Click the file button for open it. This is where everybody's files sit. Drag and drop your image onto this list and it will upload it to our wiki file storage (this does not place it on the page yet!)
If drag n drop doesn't work on your computer, use the upload file button.

YOUR FILE MUST BE ON YOUR DESKTOP AND NAMED CORRECTLY OR YOU WONT FIND IT IN THE FILE LATER!

Once you can see your file name on the list, click on it and it will load to your page where your curser was last. Images have their own tool bar that pop up to edit them.
8. to add text, type and spellcheck it first in a wordprocessing application like Word or Pages. Once its all correct, copy and paste it straight onto your page. Keep to plain font. (Remember to click EDIT first to unlock your page)
Its best to use tables to structure your page and keep it tidy, so paste text and load images into the cells instead of straight onto the blank page
Insert a table by clicking the table button on the EDIT menu bar - select 10 rows by 2 column to start with.
Add more rows when needed by clicking on the floating table icon
