Please note...
I tried to be as clear as possible, but if you have any problem finding something in the manual, or find something to be incorrect, please let me know. I will either post a clarification or temporary corrections here. A corrected manual will be released a week or so later depending on the number of changes.

Thank you ... I tip my hat to you.

@RickM Thanks for the instructions; however the piece I wanted has no page number link. I saw, in the thread above, that I can access the home page customization from the bottom of the home page - that worked fine. When I try to edit the configuration from my profile by clicking Customize your Garden.org homepage, it locks up the screen, I have to shut down the page and reopen garden.org. So, when I found your instructions, I was looking for the home page configuration instructions specifically and noticed that the index for that topic shows Error.

Thanks Lynne. That will be corrected in the next version.

As far as your screen locking up, if it's still happening, drop a note to Dave... programmer extraordinaire
