Help files have been updated

Written by Jane Atkinson on . Posted in Blog

When you need information on using your website, you need it in a hurry.

You don't always have the time to browse through help files. And I can think of more interesting things for weekend reading, anyway.

We've always had plenty of documentation and other help files on this website, but there's been a problem. They were in various places and not always easy to find. Especially when something has gone wrong and you really want to get it fixed a.s.a.p.

That's now been changed. There is one place to go for docs.

Some of the docs have been written from scratch. Others have been updated. Yet others have been used as is. The aim is to cover what you need to know to manage your FreeToastHost website.

But if you think that something important is missing, or it could be written more clearly, please let us know. Post a message in the Documentation feedback forum and tell us how it could be improved.
