Putting documents on to the Intranet

This section assumes that you have created the files that you want to add, and that they are in HTML format. You will already have gone through the process for configuring your computer.

The process of adding documents depends upon the computer that you are using, but you will first need to save the HTML file(s) to the correct location, and then ensure that there is a link to the new file(s).

PCs with Windows 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP

Depending upon how you have configured your computer, you will either have a desktop icon looking like a folder :-

Accessing either of these will show you which areas of the Intranet you can author materials for. Adding a file is as simple as dragging an icon into the correct folder, or using your favourite application to Save to drive I:.

You should then be able to access the new information via the Intranet. Please check this carefully to ensure that it is correct and reasonably formatted.
