The Worksite Information box is located on a site's home page in the column next to the menubar. You can display either text or a web page in the box; you can also change the size of the box.

On this page:


Adding a web page

To make a web page appear in the Worksite Information box:

  1. In the site you want to edit, if the site's home page is not already open, click Home in the menubar.
  2. In the Worksite Information box, click the Edit icon ( The Edit icon looks like a pencil and paper, and appears in the upper right of the box ).

    Note: Because the title of the Worksite Information box is customizable, the box may be titled something other than "Worksite Information" on your site; however, it will always be located on your site's home page in the column next to the menubar.

  3. In the "Title" field, enter a title for your Worksite Information box, or keep the default or current title.
  4. Use the "Frame Height" drop-down list to set the height for your Worksite Information box. You cannot change the width of the box.

    Note: Most web pages display best in a tall box (600 or more pixels).

  5. Under "Site Info URL", type the URL (you may omit the http:// prefix).
  6. Click Update Options.

    Note: You may need to refresh your browser to view your new Worksite Information.
