WordPress “How To”

Note, some of these “How To” pages may be password protected because passwords or email addresses that post to the web are shown.  No problem for any HIUMC member to get the password.  This is just to prevent a spam or jokester from messing with our web site.  Just ask and we will give you the login password and we are thankful you want to help post content.


Welcome to the “How To” page.

Please let me know what you want to know how to do  and I may can do a quick video instruction so you have it to go back to or share with others also.

When watching, (I suggest)

Make the screen full size by clicking bottom left of youtube screen.

Watch video all the way through one time, then go back and start and pause the video as you do each step yourself.  You open a separate browser and then toggle back and forth between the two screens, one you are watching, the other doing it yourself one step at a time.    Later when you really need to do what is on the video, you can just rewatch the video pausing at each step.  So you don’t even have to remember all those steps.  Easy Pezy right!
