HELP on Using My Site
PAGE CONSTRUCTION -----
Let's begin with a look at the construction of the page. There are (2) major area on the page. (1-Blue) This is the Banner, Menu and Navigation Bar area. (2-Red) This the Content Area which changes to display your selection that you made from the Menu or the Nav Bar. The advantage of a frame built page is that your Menu and Nav Bar never changes or moves but stays in the same place with the same content. (See illustration below)
Beware that some selections you make will open a new browser window and in that window the content you wish to view. A good illustration of this is links to other web pages.
(8) MAJOR SITE DIVISIONS -----
Below is a chart listing the (8) major site divisions and their content which will display in the "Content Area" (Red above) . These are only the major divisions, under them you will find more sub-pages that give you more content on the major division subject. When you enter a Major Division page you will see a table like below that contains a list and content of the sub-pages of the Major Division page. The left column contains the links to sub-pages.
