Basic Distribution Training


In the Basic Distribution Training, we teach users how to manage content on basic pages so that it can be applied to the other content types. We describe in detail how to format text, add images, create galleries, write hyperlinks, add redirects, and arrange menu items.




This is included in your annual costs.
