The SurreyCommunity.info system includes a page editor that allows you to edit and format content for your webpages.

The editor works in a similar way to word processing programs. This page shows you how to add, change and remove text on your pages but you can also use the editor for pictures, links and tables.

Remember!: When you have finished making changes to your page, click either the save button (to store your changes) or the save and publish button (to store your changes and make them available on your website). If you don't do this, you will lose your changes!
