To get to your Chapter’s page so that you can edit, you can either:


Change Chapter’s Page Featured Image:

At the top of your Chapter’s “Edit” Page, the first section you’ll see is your Chapter’s Featured Image. This section is where you can change your Chapter’s Featured Image that is shown on the bottom of the home page, on the main Chapters page under Member’s Only, and as the first image of your Chapter’s slide show on your Chapter’s page.

Please keep in mind this is a public photo seen by anyone.

  1. Hover over the existing featured image and click the “X” icon in the top right of the photo. This removes your existing photo.
  2. Click “Add Image.”
  3. In the dialog box that appears, you can either:
    – Select a previously uploaded photo to be your featured photo. Click the photo you’d like to make your featured photo (a selected photo will have a blue checkmark in the top right corner of the photo). Once selected, click “Select” in the bottom right corner of the dialog box.
    – Upload a new photo to be a featured photo. Click the “Upload Files” tab in the top left corner of the dialog box.

With your new featured photo selected, click “Select” in the bottom right corner of the dialog box.
  4. In the next dialog box that appears, crop your photo so that you have the best crop possible. You can click and drag any white dot along the parameter of the photo to adjust the crop.

  9. Click “Update” at the top right of the page to save your changes.

Important: Please do not leave any slide in your slide show without an image. Doing so will cause your slide show to perform undesirably. Make sure to remove any empty slides from your slide show.

  1. Hover over the slide you wish to delete, and move your cursor over to the right side of the slide.
  2. On the right side of the slide will be a circle button with a minus sign. When you hover over the minus sign, it will turn red and pop up “Remove Row”.

To reorganize slides in your slide show:

Keep in mind that the first image of your slide show is your Chapter Featured Image. The rest of the images in your slide show will appear after.

  1. Hover over the slide you wish to move, and move your cursor over to the left side of the slide.
  2. On the left side of the slide will be a number. When you hover over the number, your cursor will change.

  6. To preview changes, scroll to the top of your Chapter’s “Edit” Page and click “Preview Changes” in the top right corner. This will open your Chapter Page in a new tab so you can preview changes. If you’re happy with the changes, you can close out of that tab to go back to your previous tab.

Edit Chapter’s Information

The last section of the Chapter “Edit” page has information about your Chapter, including founding date, charter members, key civic projects, and important fact.

It’s recommended that the text in these sections remain brief and to the point. Utilize the “Preview Changes” function to see how your new content appears to make sure the content isn’t too lengthy for the space provided. The “About Our Chapter” box should be no longer than the slide show.

  1. To edit any field in your Chapter’s information, click the field and make any necessary edits.
  2. To preview changes, scroll to the top of your Chapter’s “Edit” Page and click “Preview Changes” in the top right corner. This will open your Chapter Page in a new tab so you can preview changes. If you’re happy with the changes, you can close out of that tab to go back to your previous tab.
  3. Click “Update” at the top right of the page to save your changes.

Important: Please do not edit the very last field on your Chapter’s “Edit” page, titled “Group ID.” Editing this field will cause your page to break.
