Form For Building Your Page For A DeskTop or Laptop

Step 1: Save This Page

Saving this page is optional, but it will simplify previewing images, and, anytime you want to change your page, you won't have to come back here. A security benefit is that you won't have to be on the internet as you make your page (so, no worries about us or anyone else peeking over your shoulder).

There are various ways to do this.Try pushing 'alt' and 'f' at the same time, or 'ctrl' and 's' at the same time, or opening the 'file' tab on your menu bar and looking for a 'save page as...' option.

Save the page to a place that's easy to find, and put any images you want to use in the same folder.

Step 2: Fill Out This Form 😀

We recommend you use a laptop or desktop computer to fill out the form.

Quick Links For You:

Insert the URLs (you know, web addresses, https://...) for sites you visit often here. They will be displayed like a bookmarks toolbar across the top of your cover page, so you can access them quickly. To get the URL, go to the site you're interested in and click inside the address bar. Next, select the entire address — make sure you get the whole thing, from 'https' all the way to the last character. Copy this, and paste into one of the URL fields below. Next to this, put a short name for the site. Repeat for up to 11 sites. So, for example:

URL0: Site Name: Facebook

URL 1: Site Name:

URL 2: Site Name:

URL 3: Site Name:

URL 4: Site Name:

URL 5: Site Name:

URL 6: Site Name:

URL 7: Site Name:

URL 8: Site Name:

URL 9: Site Name:

Page Content:

This section is for the main body of your cover page. There are 9 sections (3 rows, each with a field for left, center, and right). Each field has room for a headline with a link, and a bit of introductory text (just put enough to get people interested in following the link). The fields below indicate where they will show up on the page (though the links will be applied to the headlines—they won't be displayed on the screen). If you skip a section, that portion will be blank.
