PD/GO Digital Marketing – demo of website editing system


Hello, this is Steve Schwartz with PD/GO
and I’d like to do a quick demo video today showing examples of how to do some
common features and updates on a demonstration website. This will show you
PD/GO version 4 which has a lot of great features, functionality, bells and
whistles. Let’s get right into it. Once you’ve logged into your account with the
PD/GO system, your username and password, you can see this panel where the changes
you will make will occur on the left-hand side of the screen and the
website changes will appear on the right-hand side of the screen in a
preview mode. Then once your changes are approved on the right side, you can click
a button to publish your changes to your live website. I’m going to click the
button here for Web Pages, and this will take us into a panel that shows four
different web pages that are on this demonstration account: Home, About,
Testimonials, and Contact. You’ll notice that the About Us page has a couple of
sublevel pages underneath it. To edit a page, you simply select the page you want
and double click it. This takes us into the editing mode and on the left-hand
side you’ll see the place where you can either add, change, or remove content and
again on the right will be a preview of the live website. What I’m going to do is
click in here to this block of text and you’ll see that it highlights in blue…
this is where I can actually start to add some new verbage… Hi there
exclamation point, I’ll press the Enter key a couple of times and you’ll see
that now the Hi there line is a separate block of text; separate from where I had
originally put it and so with “there” if I want, I can change the text formatting
from paragraph to main heading or subheading, something like that, and
you’ll see over here on the right-hand side that it’s changed appropriately.
Maybe I want to make it a little bit smaller. I’ll go to maybe section heading…
that’ll be a smaller size font right there.
Okay let me show you other things that we can do such as making words bolded. We
select the words that we wish to bold. I can select bold here or even italics or
underline or link (which will link it to a third-party website or a page within
the existing site). So I can change bold like that
and that’s a very easy simple thing to do. You’ll see that it’s now bolded over
here on the right. If I want to make a page that links to, let’s say the contact
page on the website, I’ll select it. I’ll click the link button. a drop-down menu
appears here where I can choose the web page and select Contact. I can even have
it open in a new window or tab if I wish. Click done and now that word becomes a
link to the Contact page. You’ll see that it refreshes over here on the right-hand
side of the screen. Also as I make changes on the left, you’ll see that the
published changes button will appear at the top here. This allows me to publish
those changes to the live web site…takes one click, takes a couple of moments and
that’s that. Let me show you how to insert a new photo into the web site, We
click the blue Insert button right here, and it takes us to a panel that shows
all the different things that can be inserted into this web page including
Widgets, Column Layouts, Images, Galleries, Videos, Tables and much more. I’m going to click the Images button. It shows the different six or seven images that are
currently in this websites image storage area. I want to add a new one so I’m
going to click Upload New Images. This takes me to my computer’s hard drive and
here’s a couple of pictures I have that I could put on the website if I wanted
to. There’s an adorable picture of my little guy Simon when he was three years
old in his Halloween costume. I just double-click it…it’s now uploaded and
now I can grab here and drag and drop it wherever I wish it to appear on the
website. I’m going to put it right here. You see the blue line tells me where it
would be inserted and you’ll see it now has appeared on the right-hand side now
I’m going to select the image block here and I’m have some options on what I’d
like to do to format this particular image. I can align it left, center, or
right, so it looks a right align it. I can change the image size from small, medium,
large, or extra-large, etc. I’m going to change it to large and for fun I’m going
to use the feature here for Advanced Image Styles. I’m going to put a light
border around it and you’ll now see all those changes
have taken place. They look good. I can publish those changes and it’s now done
on the live website. There’s many other features that are in the system
available such as Blogging, Column Layout options, Image Galleries,
embedding videos, full-screen image backgrounds or fullscreen video
backgrounds and much, much more. Please call us at PD/GO. We’re very glad to help
