How do I request a Web page?

How do I edit the page from home?

Web pages can be created and edited using a Web editor such as Dreamweaver, Notepad, etc. Once a website has been created, it must be sent or uploaded to the Web folder. It can be sent to the web folder via FTP (File Transfer Protocol).

Composer (part of the SeaMonkey suite) is a free Web editor. No knowledge of HTML is needed. Composer has a functional FTP capability that will transfer only HTML and image files to your NOVA Web folder. To transfer files, such as music, movies, or presentations, you will need to download Core FTP.
