Adding Programs to Pages

We have many programs and features available for you to use on your website. To include a program simply type the "Inclusion Code" associated with that program into any page when editing the page. If, for example, you want to add the Photo Slideshow to your website, simply click on the Edit Pages icon at the top, find the page on which you want the Photo Slideshow to appear and click on Edit. Type in (or paste) the following page into the editor: %%include-autoslide%%. Save your page. NOTE: some programs require configuration before they will work correctly. The Photo Slideshow, for example, requires that you add pictures to the slideshow. You must configure the program. If you need help, please call us or e-mail us.

Below are the programs currently available and the code to add them to your page.

CODES ARE CASE SENSITIVE!

Correct code: %%include-calendar%%
Wrong code: %%Include-Calendar%%
Notice the capitalization in the second example. This will prevent the code from working and generate an error in your page rather than displaying the working page.
