Editing ASPA Pages

To edit pages on this site you must first be logged in to your account that has editing permissions. When logged in, you should see a black toolbar across the top of each page while on the site.

To edit an ASPA page, you can access the page in one of two ways:

  • Navigate to the page you wish to edit. For example, visit http://smte.us/aspas/ and then click the ASPA page you want to edit. Once on the desired page, click the “Edit this entry” link near the top of the page to enter the page editing screen.
  • Go to your user Dashboard, under the SMTE menu at the left in the user toolbar at the top of the screen. From the Dashboard, select the Pages menu. Use the scroll or search functions to locate the desired page, then click the Edit button under the page title to enter the page editing screen.

SPECIAL NOTE when editing ASPA pages: Each ASPA page has a section in the editor that creates an automated button that allows registered users to join an ASPA group as part of their profile on the SMTE website. When editing your ASPA page, please DO NOT edit anything in the section titled Group Membership. You will notice this section has several lines of code in brackets. View this image for an example of the section that should NOT be edited on your page.
