Log In To Your Site

    If the User login block is disabled on your site and you have not added a ‘Log in’ link to your menu, it is useful to know the path to get that page:


    To log in

    • Enter Username
    • Enter Password
    • Click Log In

    Your successful login should take you to your account page. You can click on your site name or home menu to go to your home page.

    Undeliverable Emails

    We have received several concerned emails from members regarding an increase in "Undeliverable Emails".  Though such emails have always been sent, we believe you may be seeing an increase in conjunction with the increase in fraudulent orders we’ve seen, as the majority of recipient emails have looked to be false email addresses.

    Unfortunately, there isn't much we can do to prevent people from creating these accounts; you could enable CAPTCHA on the user registration page of your site, but even that cannot stop this altogether.

    Text Formatting

    Q. I pasted previously written content into a page, but I can't get any of the text formatting to change.

    When editing in Drupal it is NOT recommended to use word processing software (like Microsoft Word, Pages, or Open Office) to type up your pages.  These types of programs tend to embed extraneous code that will not format correctly into the page. Instead, use a plain text editor like Notepad to write your content.  

    Publishing Options

    Q. What do the publishing options mean?

    • Published: Anyone who visits this page can access the information.
    • Promoted to Front Page: This will move your page to your ‘Front’ page or landing page.
      • In order to remove the default ‘Welcome to Drupal...' message on your front page at least one content node needs to be promoted to the front page.

    Input Formats

    Q. What are the different Input formats?

    • Full HTML supports all standard HTML tags and will provide you the most versatility. It is the default input type for all content types.
    • Filtered HTML means that not all HTML tags are allowed and what isn't is automatically filtered out. Allowed HTML tags: <a> <em> <strong> <cite> <blockquote> <code> <ul> <ol> <li> <dl> <dt> <dd>

    Embedding Code

    Embedding code into your website is usually fairly simple. However, we highly recommend you save a copy of the code locally as a TXT file (Notepad) so that you have it saved for future use.
    Once you have obtained the embed code from its source (YouTube, Google Maps, Twitter, etc.), you will follow the steps below to add it to your page or block.


    Custom Email Checkout Notification

    You can create a ‘Custom Email Checkout Notification’ to either replace the default one or as a second additional email. The instructions below cover both options. However, it is our recommendation that you keep the default email and add a second additional email with any custom messages you would like to send. Though your custom email can include similar information as the default, it cannot include all of it and will not be identical. Custom emails can also not be formatted to display in the same design as the default email.

    The Chrome browser has a feature that allows you to preview what your website will look like through various Mobile Devices.
