UPDATING THE TEXT OF YOUR WEBSITE

This page is intended to assist you in the TEXT updating of your website. It is NOT RECOMMENDED that you try to add pictures or photos to your website unless you know how to work with files, folders and links. Photos can be added to your website by Taylor Applications, LLC for a nominal fee.

It is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you exercise extreme caution if you update your home page. Try to keep the pages that you update to a minimum. A "News" or "Events" page is a popular way to keep page changes to a minimum.

Because saved changes to your website overwrite orginal files, once you update your website, Taylor Applications, LLC´┐Ż is no longer responsible for it's original content.

If you prefer that Taylor Applications, LLC maintain your website, please contact us for pricing.
