Question: What are the icons on the editing page?
|Icon, button, or link||Description|
|The pencil icon is used to edit a page element.
|The trash-can icon is used to delete a page element.|
|The plus-sign icon is used to insert a new page element: a text element, a photo element, etc.
Plus-sign bars appear above, in between, and below all other page elements, making it possible to insert a new page element anywhere on the page.
|The colored bar containing the pencil and trash icons is also used to rearrange page elements, by dragging the bar and dropping it on one of the plus-sign bars. You may have to make your web browser window wider than usual to make this work.|
|Add buttons are used to add items to a page element that contains a collection or list.
The Add Assignment button it used to add a new assignment to an Assignment page element.
|Caution: Due to poor interface design by School Loop, the button to add a news item to a News element is named Publish instead of Add News.
The Publish button you see at the top of a news element does not publish anything; it creates a news item for you to fill in.
|The Add button on the left side of your Resources page is used to add a picture (photo, clipart, graphic, etc.) to one of your picture albums.|
|The Add drop-down on the right side of your Resources page is used to add a new uploaded file to your locker, or to add a new locker folder to your locker.|
|The Edit button is used to edit an item in a list, e.g., an indivdiual news item.
The Delete button is used to delete an item from a list, e.g., an individual news item or an individual assignment.
