CMS Basics

How to do basic things like log in to the site, edit pages, find content, and more

We use a Content Management System (CMS) to edit this website. This allows content experts to update the site without needing to know HTML or CSS.

Website contributors are all given a user ID and password for the website, and given permissions to create and edit content in specific areas of the site.
