Emergency Updates from Home

In the event of school closure, you may wish to update your website from home. If your website is hosted with RM, you will have been provided with a login to their administration site. The interface will depend on when your hosting started. Access is achieved by clicking on the link provided, entering the username and password, then selecting 'File Manager' and locating the file you wish to edit.

If your login takes you to cPanel, having selected the correct file, choose HTML Editor and then click 'Edit' in the next box. You can now type in text and use the save icon to save your page.

If you have taken new hosting recently, RM now have their own interface. You will have to select 'httpdocs' before your website file structure appears. Clicking on the appropriate filename will open the file in their WYSIWYG editor. When you have finished your changes, click 'OK' to save.

Please note that for both of these editors, the whole page is editable, not just area you can edit in Dreamweaver, so particular care must be taken as to where you place your cursor. When the emergency is over you can reinstate your previous page by uploading it from the computer you usually use in school.
