Hi again - just checking in - my school holidays have just started and I have just relocated to another state, so I haven't made any progress yet, but I'll start the task tomorrow.

Thanks Sharif - for the update. You aren't in college, are you? (I assume you are pre-university student? 13-18?)

Cool! Just wanted to double check since you mentioned being home for the holidays from a different state. We had a couple of entries where people did not understand that. (Which is too bad!)

Thanks!
Amy :)

To insert an image into a page, first open the page for editing. Press the Image Manager button (below the editing text area).

You might want to consider including a screenshot here.  Another idea would be to make this big, and then put arrows or highlight different areas of the different options.  e.g. an arrow from "align" to the option on the screen.  Be creative with this!


This is a great start!

Thanks for your help, Michal! Looks like there is a draft, now, for you to work with.

We need and appreciate all the help we can get.

Max, as usual, you rock!

Amy :)

I added a screenshot for the image button, as suggested. Uploaded to the same URL as before.

Did you and Roman get a chance to work on this? Unless he has found some issues you guys are working on, I looked through it and it looks great. I would add one line about how filenames that contain spaces (or special characters) cannot be uploaded. Otherwise, it looks great! Add that line, upload it and I'll mark it as complete.

Thanks!
Amy :)

No, Roman and I didn't do any work on this together. I've added that line and uploaded it to the Google site.

Thanks a lot for your help :)
